Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is not Muslim, but if President Trump continues his attacks against immigrants in the U.S. she’s prepared to register as one.

“I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity,” Albright tweeted The Hill reports.

Albright’s tweets come just days after feminist icon Gloria Steinem noted that if the Trump administration demanded a Muslim registry, she would register as a Muslim.

“If you force Muslims to register, we will all register as Muslims,” Steinem said during a speech at the Women’s March on Washington, Saturday, The Hill reports.

Albright’s tweets come amid reports that Trump plans to include “a temporary ban on most refugees and suspending visas for foreign nationals from seven countries.”

On Wednesday, The Associated Press reported that Trump plans to suspend visas to citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries for 30 days and will stop accepting Syrian refugees.

DISCUSSION

The ACLU has their eyes on this, if you can take action. Consider donating to the ACLU as they will surely be on the front line for any litigation related to the creation of this “registry”.

Don’t forget to call your Members of Congress and ask them to take a stand against this. They can release a statement on it at the very least. Put the pressure on your MOCs!
