re: Trump's new Muslim ban
Donald Trump's Muslim ban is a dark moment in American history. Tell Trump to rescind this order immediately:
When Donald Trump signed his Muslim ban in January, millions of Americans spoke out to say that his ban did not represent us. We marched on the White House, called our representatives in Congress, and made our voices heard at airports around the country.
Today, Donald Trump signed a new version of the Muslim ban. His first ban took an incredible, inhumane toll on thousands of innocent people. As Democrats, we have a responsibility to fight back.
For those who quit their jobs, sold their homes and possessions, and left their lives behind to seek out a better life in this country only to be turned away at our borders, we must fight back.
For the five-year-old boy and the 90-year-old grandmother who were separated from their families and detained, alone, for hours, we must fight back.
For the sick people seeking medical treatment and the doctors coming to this country to treat them who were sent away, we must fight back.
For the brave men and women who risked their lives and their families' lives to help our troops, only to have us renege on our promise of a better life in the United States, we must fight back.
For the Muslim Americans who have borne the brunt of a new wave of anti-Muslim hate crimes in the wake of this ban, we must fight back.
I've seen firsthand the difference we can make when we refuse to accept the hateful, immoral, unconstitutional actions of the Trump administration. Today, I'm asking you to join me and send Donald Trump a message loud and clear that we will not accept this new Muslim ban:
