US Rep. Moore: Anti-Immigrant Executive Orders Demand Strong Opposition

In response to President Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant and anti-refugee executive orders, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:

By - Jan 30th, 2017 11:19 am

“Like most of my constituents, I found President Donald Trump’s xenophobic executive orders targeting refugees, immigrants, and their families to be repulsive and in direct contradiction to the values that define our nation. Such abominable efforts have nothing to do with national security and everything to do with satisfying campaign promises to the alt-right movement. These anti-American actions have no place in our culture and are indicative of the overwhelming influence of nationalism that continues to permeate this administration and its policies.

“To those who have reached out to ask what they can do to fight these intolerant and misguided policies: I implore you to raise your voices and stand up against this injustice. The men and women who sit in positions of power across our country must both hear and see your opposition, from their offices and town halls to their newsfeeds and inboxes. There can be no doubt in their mind as to your level of outrage and shame over President Trump’s unconscionable actions against vulnerable families escaping unimaginable danger.

“As Americans exercise their constitutional right to protest President Trump’s executive orders, I’ll be in Washington with my House and Senate colleagues, working on policy solutions to address these concerns and protect our democracy from this administration’s draconian efforts. Together, we will show President Trump and his supporters that America doesn’t have to sacrifice our compassion and conscience for our security.”
