Wisconsin Democrats in Congress blast Trump
Democrats who represent Wisconsin in Congress are blasting President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin says on Facebook that “Wisconsin was built on the hard work of those who came for a better future for their children. We can protect both our neighbors and our civil liberties.”
Rep. Ron Kind says the order “does not reflect who we are as a nation.” Kind says it will give terror groups “another recruitment tool and making it harder for our allies in Muslim nations to work with us on counter-terrorism operations.”
And Rep. Gwen Moore calls the order “repulsive and in direct contradiction to the values that define our nation.”
Wisconsin Republicans in Congress have either voiced support or been silent.
