If you are living in the U.S. and if you hold anything other than a U.S. passport -- this includes if you hold a green card -- do not leave the U.S. right now. Period. People with legitimate green cards are being refused entry at the borders. People who were unfortunate enough to be travelling at the time Trump (spit) issued his order can't get back home. Students with student visas are not being allowed to return to class. Homeland Security has confirmed this.

It looks like Trump's order is illegal according to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. That doesn't matter right now; any court challenge will take time.

Stay in the U.S. until this is resolved. And I apologize to you. This is appalling.

Heh

Called my awesome Rep, Jackie Speier, to request she stand with John Lewis and boycott the Inauguration. It's a Federal holiday (Martin Luther King Day), so the office is closed. This is not surprising. What is surprising is that at 12:20 Washington time, the voicemail box is already full.
