Statement from Mayor William Peduto in Response to President Trump’s Executive Orders Regarding Immigration

PITTSBURGH, PA (January 25, 2017) - "The residents of Pittsburgh stand tonight with cities all across our nation. Pittsburgh was built by immigrants, who came to our city to find work in our steel mills and who forged a better life for their families. Like my grandparents, they came to America for opportunity, and they built America. We stand on their shoulders, and we owe it to them to preserve opportunities for current and future generations. Just as our past was built by immigrants, so too will be our future.
