Comunidades Unidas calls on Utahns to unite against threats of detentions and family separation

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH - Comunidades Unidas invites the community to remain calm and obtain information through appropriate information channels, following the statements of the Trump administration threatening to make arrests, mass deportations, and separate families. For now, the state of Utah is not under immediate threat but we should stay alert and take the necessary precautions in case of an emergency.

Currently, only people with a previous deportation order may be at risk. However, we recognize the volatility of the Trump administration’s practices related to immigration. Family separation or the threat of family separation greatly affects the mental and physical well-being of children and adults in our communities.

We invite everyone in the community to come together and take action to protect our immigrant neighbors:

  • Invest in your community - Are you concerned about the proposed immigration detentions? Support Comunidades Unidas’ fight to protect immigrant rights by joining our Dream Builder membership program.

  • Become a volunteer of Comunidades Unidas and participate in community actions to bring awareness to this issue and support affected families. Join us.

  • Complete a Family Emergency Plan, Comunidades Unidas has a free family emergency plan that helps family members get better organized. Download it for free at The plan is available in English, Spanish, Tongan, Arabic, Swahili, and Dinka.

  • Spread the word and share information! We have educational material available on our social network channels and website in both English and Spanish.
