Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wonderful response to Trump’s ban of all people (not just refugees) from 7 countries: “Canada will welcome you,” Trudeau invites refugees as Trump bans them (thinkpol.ca)
Thank you, @justinpjtrudeau: ironically, this is America. 🇺🇸 President Trump has gone full-on un-American. This should be a black cloud, today, and yet it seems Many of us are complacent, helpless, hopeless. And yet we know that we can’t afford to stand aside and let this happen. This is outrageous—and ineffective. 🇺🇸 On elephantjournal.com’s front page, please read and share: “Want to see how a fearless Democracy turns into an Authoritarian State? Here’s one sure sign.” Please read this. Please share. This should be outrageous. This is a tear on the fabric of the country we want to live in. 🇺🇸 Stop covering politics, some of our dear readers cry every time we post something relephant. Look: politics are life.

“Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional.” ~ Mike Pence (see tweet here).
Drain the swamp? Nah: President Trump’s Muslim ban excludes countries linked to his sprawling business empire.

A welcome reminder from, yes, President Reagan…for all those who use his name in vain.
President Trump just went full-on un-American.
This should be a black cloud, today, and yet it seems Americans don’t care, much. We can’t afford to stand aside and let this happen. This is outrageous—and ineffective.

A green card is a legal form of permanent residency.
If this were truly about terrorism, not merely prejudice, Saudi Arabia would be on the banned list.
How can one American prohibit LEGAL PERMANENT US RESIDENTS from re-entering the country? Easy:
People holding so-called green cards, making them legal permanent U.S. residents, are included in President Donald Trump’s executive action temporarily barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, a Department of Homeland security spokeswoman said on Saturday.
“It will bar green card holders,” Gillian Christensen, acting Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman, said in an email.
