Madeline Albright Ready To Register As A Muslim To Defy Trump

"I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish," Madeleine Albright tweeted. "I stand ready to register as Muslim in solidarity."

If there's one person taking a strong stand against President Donald Trump's xenophobic immigration policies, it's Czech immigrant and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. 

The 79-year-old recently tweeted about her willingness to register as Muslim to oppose Trump's administration, Mashable reports

The non-sectarian educational group True Islam tweeted their praise of Albright's backing.

Before this, Albright had tweeted a photo of the Statue of Liberty featuring an excerpt from a powerful poem by Emma Lazarus.

The poem read,

"Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses

yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of 

your teeming shore. 

Send these, the homeless,

tempest-tost to me, 

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

"Big Bang Theory" star Mayim Bialik tweeted a similar message of support on Jan. 25. 

May we all follow Albright and Bialik's example of tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity in an otherwise dark American era.
