Please join a pop-up demonstration outside Ryan Costello’s office on WEDNESDAY MORNING Feb. 1 at 11:30 to protest his mealy-mouthed response to Trump’s un-American and unconstitutional attack on immigration law and human rights. We also expect that Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to be announced tonight will be worth protesting.
Below see Costello’s evasive blah blah blah. Does he know that immigrants and children of immigrants from those 7 countries have never committed terrorist acts in the US? Does he know that Saudi Arabia supplied 15 of the 9/11 attackers? Does he care that Iraq is our ally and that restricting people on the basis of religion goes against our Bill of Rights? Does he think it is fair for people who have waited up to ten years to be vetted and receive visas to be sent back to the extreme hardship and danger they have been trying to escape?
If he has answers, why isn’t he answering constituents who have been trying to contact him over the past weeks?
Does he hope we will forget about our constitution and others’ human rights during a “comprehensive review” as our country’s reputation plunges abroad? Does he think we will fall for the blandishments of another “compassionate conservative”?
Come and let Rep. Costello know what you think. Bring immigration-oriented signs. Outside his office on the north side of West Market St., just west of High St., downtown West Chester, 11:30 a.m. Wednesday February 1.
Costello has been complaining that “PA-6 is now one of the Democrats’ top targets in the country in 2018.” Maybe there is a reason.
Thanks if you can join us!
As the yard signs say: Hate has no home here!
Here’s your daily practice in reading between the lines of political statements:
Press Release, January 29, 2017
Washington, D.C. — Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06) issued the following statement on the President’s Executive Order:
“Job number one of the federal government is to protect the American people, and I support a comprehensive review of this process over the next 90 days, and especially concerning the 7 countries identified by the Obama and Trump administrations as being dangerous terrorist hotspots. This review is something every new administration should be expected to do. But green card holders and those assisting us in the war on terror should not be denied entry, and actions to the contrary must be remedied immediately. America is a country that can go about achieving our security objectives while maintaining compassion.
I interpret these executive orders as temporary. We should all want a robust yet humane process for entry screening, and I am confident we can and will continue the American ethos of welcoming the persecuted and oppressed in a safe and orderly manner, with very strong security protections for our citizens.”
