Outraged. This is not America.

I am outraged by Donald Trump's executive order barring refugees, immigrants, and even legal permanent residents. 
 
Slamming our doors shut and building walls is an affront to our American values and a danger to our security.  
 
America has been a beacon of hope to the world precisely because we celebrate ethnic and religious diversity. We have not always succeeded, but we have always aspired to meet our ideals. 
 
Donald Trump's dark vision does not reflect the American people, and sends the wrong message to the world. 
 
I stand with everyone affected, especially our Muslim brothers and sisters. 
 
We are and must always be better than this.
