Madeleine Albright Joining Gloria Steinem on Muslim Registry

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday she’s ready to “register as Muslim” after President Donald Trump signed two executive orders this week that could drastically alter the country’s current immigration policy.

Albright’s tweet comes days after feminist Gloria Steinem said she would register as a Muslim if needed under Trump’s immigration plans, according to The Hill.
“If you force Muslims to register, we will all register as Muslims,” Steinem said Saturday during the Women’s March on Washington.
The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that Trump’s draft order plans to put a hold on the issuing of visas to citizens from seven countries for 30 days. The order also plans to prevent Syrian refugees from coming to the U.S.
Albright was open in her criticisms of the president during his campaign trail and expressed her support of Hillary Clinton, noted Fox News.
Last year, at a rally in New Hampshire, Albright radically drove the point home that supporting Clinton as a woman was a must, saying there was a “place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
She would later backpedal from those remarks, though, referring to that part of her speech as an “undiplomatic moment.”
On Wednesday, Trump announced plans to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, which include adding an additional 5,000 agents to the Border Patrol forces and an additional 10,000 to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers who will be responsible for carrying out deportations, CNN reported.
