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.
I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity.— Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) January 25, 2017
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.
I'm Jewish. I stand ready to register as a Muslim in #solidarity if it comes to that.— Mayim Bialik (@missmayim) January 25, 2017
May we all follow Albright and Bialik's example of tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity in an otherwise dark American era.
