Hundreds of U.S. State Department Officials Sign Memo Condemning Trump's Muslim Ban

Washington, February 1 (RHC)-- Widespread resistance to U.S. President Donald Trump’s immigration ban continued across the U.S. and the world in nearly all sectors of society -- from the streets to Silicon Valley to the halls of Washington.

More than 200 U.S. State Department officials and diplomats have signed on to drafts of a dissent memo that condemns Trump’s executive order.  One draft of the memo reads: "This ban stands in opposition to the core American and constitutional values that we, as federal employees, took an oath to uphold."

As news of the dissent memo broke, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer threatened State Department officials, saying they should quit their jobs if they have a problem with Trump’s "program."

Sean Spicer said that if "these career bureaucrats have a problem" with Trump's executive order, "they should either get with the program or they can go."
