Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren asserted today that the people of America will not allow a Muslim ban in the country. She was addressing a group of people Saturday at the Boston Logan Airport.

“Tonight we fight for American values at airports all across this country and say: We will not stand for Donald Trump’s Muslim ban in the United States of America,” Warren said in her speech.

She urged President Trump to embrace policies that reflect America’s core values and protect the national security. “Rescind this executive order now,” Warren asked Trump.

She was referring to the executive order that President Trump had signed on Friday to suspend resettlement of Syrian refugees indefinitely and all other refugee resettlement for 120 days.

The order also banned the entry of nationals from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen for 90 days. All seven countries are predominately Muslim countries.

Meanwhile, a Federal District Court Judge Ann M. Donnelly issued a stay Saturday, blocking Trump’s discriminatory policy from taking effect and preventing refugees and immigrants from being deported.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Judge did not rule on the constitutionality of the order, but for now, the men and women who would have been deported are safe.

Warren also had said on Wednesday that Trump’s actions show an ugly indifference to immigrants and a profound misunderstanding of the real dangers that people face.

She has proposed to declare January 25th as the Trump Administration’s First Anti-Immigrant Day.
