Madeleine Albright has a strong response to President Trump's immigration policies

This comes after reports that Trump is planning to sign an executive order suspending refugee admissions to the U.S. for a certain period of time.

Within moments of the tweet mentioned above, Albright further emphasized her message by tweeting a photo of the statue of liberty, emblazoned with the words, " "Give me your exhausted, 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!"

Politician Madeleine Albright and Mayim Bialik said they "stand ready" to register, in defiance of the new President.

Her comments come as rumours continue to circulate about an executive order which would announce extreme vetting, a refugee ban and a ban on arrivals from seven countries, said to include Syria, Yemen and Iraq. "America must remain open to people of all faiths & backgrounds", she added.

Their tweets echo feminist icon Gloria Steinem who said during a speech at last Saturday's Women's March: "If you force Muslims to register, we will all register as Muslims".
