This, on the heels of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. Signed Friday, January 27th it bars citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for the next 90 days, suspends the admission of all refugees for 120 days and indefinitely suspends the Syrian refugee program.

 

Senator Larson and Rep. Brostoff said the move was in response to a growing number of hate crimes and hateful rhetoric used by political figures and elected officials.

    Denouncing ‘hate’?!?!? The very HATE the left spews on a daily basis against anyone that disagrees with them. Pathetic -people have had enough!

  • Huh !

    I don’t hate anyone but, I do hate the stupidity of some. A resolution against hate ….. Is this a piece of paper that says it’s naughty and don’t do it ??? We have laws against hate crimes, so what is this resolution except another way to stay in the media, just a cheap P.R. move ?
