STAMFORD — A meeting hosted by a city nonprofit to ease fears within the immigrant community in the wake of Donald Trump’s election to the U.S. presidency drew a large crowd on Monday.
The meeting included representatives from the Stamford Police Department, Schools Superintendent Earl Kim and elected officials, who said immigrants in Stamford should feel safe and supported, regardless of their status.
“The message was we are a unified community that welcomes and values immigrants and diversity, and nothing has changed in Stamford after the elections,” said Catalina Horak, executive director of Neighbor’s Link, the organization that hosted the event.
