Background Text:
This serves as a reference material and will not be voted on as part of the Resolution

  • The USA foreign policy has undergone major changes since President Donald Trump took office on January 20th, 2017. 
  • On January 25th, President Trump signed the Executive Order “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements”, which includes the immediate construction of a physical wall on the border with Mexico. (The White House. Executive Order: Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements. January 25, 2017 - link)
  • Ever since the presidential campaign, Mr. Trump expressed his intention to make Mexico pay for the border wall, causing tensions that go beyond the two nations.
  • Other recent actions from President Trump include the temporary travel ban from seven Muslim-majority countries and the attempt to allow anti-LGBTQ discrimination based on religious belief.
  • These actions represent a clear violation of human rights and have been condemned by several world leaders. It’s time for the Greens to take a stand on this issue.
