According to sources deep inside the State Department bureaucracy, something like 900 employees have signed a memo protesting Trump's travel ban EO.

Apparently the White House has commented by saying insider career diplomats need to get with the program or quit !!!

Lots of Cabinet organization employees being exposed I would say.


About 900 State Department officials sign protest memo: source

About 900 U.S. State Department officials signed an internal dissent memo protesting a travel ban by U.S. President Donald Trump on refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, a source familiar with the document said on Tuesday, in a rebellion against the new president's policies.

A senior State Department official confirmed the memorandum had been submitted to acting Secretary of State Tom Shannon through the department's "dissent channel," a process in which officials can express unhappiness over policy.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Monday he was aware of the memo but warned career diplomats that they should either "get with the program or they can go."

He ran on this. The people voted him in to office. who cares what these 900 Democrats say? If the roles were reversed would anyone care that Republicans didn't agree with policy decisions? Of course not.

Well it says the memo is sent through a, 'dissent channel' so that much is in order since they have such a device. Spicer should choose his words more carefully, sacking 900 people isn't on, and it shows that there are people seriously concerned, and that he should talk with them..it's not a dictatorship...or is it?

Funny how Trumpets scream bloody murder if 900 unskilled factory jobs go to Mexico but if you are perceived to be:

A. In the government
B. Lean left

Then it's OK and welcomed for you to loose your job.

F$cking idiots.....

And those seven countries are ?

Iraq,Iran,Sudan,Libya,Somalia,Yemen,Syria.

And Those people KNOW what goes on in those countries. THAT's their jobs.

So 900 people need to be FIRED.

With no severance package, No pensions. No benefits.

Hit the ROAD.

The U.S. State Department is part of the elected President's Executive Branch.

If there's "opposition" on the inside, it affects the whole government and could be a National Security risk.

Factory jobs have zero to do with this issue.

Their job does not include performing anything unconstitutional.

You know, that piece of paper you conservatives act like you love so much but in your actions destroy?

Keep telling yourself that.

Next time I hear screaming about 900 factory jobs closing I'll remind you that there are 900 PROFESSIONAL jobs that those unskilled workers CAN NOT take. Because......edumakation.

Dummies.....

Right. We wouldn't want any of the 900 who refuse to do their job to be forced to have the same experience of not finding a job outside of the government like the rest of unemployed Americans.

That would be just awful.

What are you talking about who mentioned factory jobs?

"dissent channel," a process in which officials can express unhappiness over policy."
That's it, end of story. They are allowed to do that, so don't act so thick. To be sure it may be unprecedented, I don't know about that, in any case Spicer is a press secretary, not a personnel admin.

For the millionth time.....how is it unconstitutional?
This is nothing new...Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr, Reagan...they all did it.
There is a new sheriff in town, do your freaking job, uphold the freaking law.....or you will be gone.
You deranged Leftists just don't get it, these are not new laws made up by Trump, these are immigration laws that have been around for years but not enforced for the last 8 years by your King Obama.

Many on the right did not feel the same way about county clerks not doing their job and even made faux heros out of them.......

Going as far as rushing them out to stage with fake tears.

Oh, the hypocrisy is almost as delicious as your tears.
