Republican Gubernatorial Candidates Back Trump’s Muslim Ban

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Gubernatorial Candidates Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart, and Frank Wagner have all come out in support of Donald Trump's un-American and discriminatory executive order that has prompted mass protests across the country.

"By supporting this ban, by backing an order that has resulted in chaos, confusion and that will have zero effect in protecting us, Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart, and Frank Wagner proved that they are willing to trample on people's civil rights, support institutionalized xenophobia, and put our national security at risk. That's not leadership and we deserve better than Republicans who seek to impose Trump's dangerous, shortsighted, and misguided policies on Virginians and all Americans." - Susan Swecker, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Virginia 

We can protect our people while preserving our values. This policy does neither.
