They have come for Mexicans, and they walled them.
They have come for Muslim immigrants, and they have outlawed them.

Rand Paul of Kentucky
Cory Gardner of Colorado
Susan Collins of Maine
Dean Heller of Nevada
Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania
Ron Johnson of Wisconsin
Jeff Flake of Arizona
John McCain of Arizona
Marco Rubio of Florida

This means that the people in these states need to be calling, visiting, and protesting these people to make them aware of the intense, loud, *patriotic* opposition to the policies, nominees, and decisions of this Administration.
