In response to President Trump’s executive order on immigration policies, many liberal members of Congress have chimed in using the #NoBanNoWall hashtag on twitter.
Below are just some of them.

Trump’s executive orders are an attack on all immigrant communities. We stand united against anti-immigrant policies. #NoBanNoWall
— US Rep. Darren Soto (@RepDarrenSoto) January 25, 2017
— Senator Mazie Hirono (@maziehirono) January 25, 2017
— Senator Bob Menendez (@SenatorMenendez) January 25, 2017
Cost of Trump border wall to taxpayers: $25 billion
Economic growth of #ImmigrationReform: $700 billion
The numbers are clear. #NoBanNoWall

A border wall is a $25 billion taxpayer dollar symbol of hate and fear. #NoBanNoWall

— Rep. Norma Torres (@NormaJTorres) January 25, 2017
If history has taught us anything it is that walls are expensive, unnecessary and people ultimately find ways around them. #NoBanNoWall

Others are also calling it a #WallOfHate.
Since when is a wall considered hate? Every country has a right to secure their own borders.

— Rep. Hank Johnson (@RepHankJohnson) January 25, 2017
We need policies that embrace our values of acceptance & love of country, not ones that divide us by spreading fear & hate. #NoBanNoWall
— Rep.Grace Napolitano (@gracenapolitano) January 25, 2017
America was founded on principles of religious freedom. Targeting Muslim immigrants sets a dangerous precedent. #NoBanNoWall
— Rep. Lois Frankel (@RepLoisFrankel) January 25, 2017
Some of these politicians bring up the concern of taxpayer dollars for building the wall. This may be a legit concern, but I doubt any of these liberals showed any outrage when President Obama doubled our national debt with trillions of dollars. And they’re upset over $25 billion?
We live in scary times when we have elected leaders refusing to enforce current immigration laws just because it doesn’t fit their agenda.
