    We already have extreme vetting of immigrants and refugees. Our country has always been a nation of immigrants, and we cannot allow xenophobia to stop the flow of immigration. We need their gifts and talents and passion and the cultural color they bring to the rich tapestry that is America.

    America is known as the land of the Free. The government has no right to limit who enters the country, especially not on the basis of religion, gender, or social stature.

    This travel ban is to protects the United States from potential terrorists attacks. Without proper background screening, we as a nation knows the effects of 9/11 by letting down our guards with open borders and by not vetted who enters. If there is no vetting, then close down the FBI, CIA, NSA, and DHS, because they are there by the anti-terrorism act, no since wasting taxpayers money.

    The world is learning that under the Trump Administration, America does not honor its commitments to people or to the values that have been a source of strength and moral leadership since our founding. This administration’s statements will give credence to those stoking the flames of religious hatred, making citizens of every nation on earth, including the United States, less safe for years to come. I call on our elected representatives to support U.S. refugee resettlement for Syrian and other Muslim and non-Muslim refugees. The President, and every member of Congress, must denounce religious discrimination for refugees

    Yes! Refugees and asylum seekers and immigrants already go through a lengthy process. We have more home grown terrorists than foreign terrorists. If the vetting process needs improved then work on that. Don't punish people who have already completed their process by denying them access to the country. If you want to save lives, work on ferreting out our own right wing extremists.

    We should welcome the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society. They should be offered a seat at the table instead of being rejected and deported. Donald Trump's executive orders make me ashamed that our great nation would ever elect a person like this to represent our country.

    The United States should remain a leader in accepting refugees and asylum seekers as it is a key value of ours as a nation. It's time for Congress to take meaningful action on immigration, even if it means difficult compromise, and to maintain our status as welcoming to all. The President is largely taking these actions because he can and because Congress will not act on immigration. Congress needs to accept its responsibility and enact legislation to clarify the nation's values.
