Have your senators commented on / condemned the ban yet? WA State senators have:

I called both offices earlier today.

Patty Murray has tweeted a few times:

I urge this Administration to work to further our national security, not merely target individuals based on their religion or nationality.

So much of what makes America great is our diversity.

America has long been a place of safety for people around the world fleeing religious, political, and gender-based persecution and violence.

President Trump has slammed the door on thousands of peopleómany of whom are women & children fleeing horrific violence.

And just in the last 30 minutes, Maria Cantwell:

Sen. Maria Cantwell ‏@SenatorCantwell
Actions by the administration that discriminate on basis of religion or country of origin betray our tradition of diversity & acceptance

8. Many have tweeted against it.

You wouldn't know based off the weekly "Why aren't the Dems condemning this?" posts on DU every time a republican fucks up though.

Booker, Warren, Gillibrand, Franken, Murphy, Casey, Klobuchar, are just a few that have spoken out. All those wondering what Dems are condemning this need to do is go to their twitter/facebook page. Heck, even the official page for the party is speaking out.
