Sally Yates was removed from the position of Acting US Attorney General by President Donald Trump because she ordered the Justice Department not to defend the Refugee Ban and the Muslim Travel Ban imposed on people in transit from 7 majority Muslim countries.

“At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities, nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful,” Ms. Yates wrote in a letter to Justice Department lawyers.

Sally Yates had the right to question the executive order, and for her free expression she was fired. This is an assault on the first Amendment of the US Constitution. 

Let's support Sally Yates. Please honor her heroic act and support free speech, freedom of association, and freedom of religion everywhere.
