MILWAUKEE - President Donald Trump's immigration crackdown is sending shockwaves around the world. The crackdown focuses on immigrants from Muslim-majority countries, and Milwaukeeans from Middle Eastern countries aren't pleased.
"We are not all accepting what's happening in the new administration, and the attitude toward immigrants," Marie Honel said.
Honel isn't a Milwaukeean from a Middle Eastern country, but she is offering her support to those who are. She said she's completely against the executive order signed by the President Friday limiting immigration from Iran and six other Muslim-majority countries.
"I want it to be visible, I don't want people to think that everyone agrees with discrimination," Honel said.
Honel's support is something Razi Hadian is on board with. Hadian hails from Iran, but she's now a U.S. citizen and a family physician in the city of Milwaukee.
"Ideally, I would like actually that the United States go back to land of opportunity that offers all the goods and happiness to all immigrants that have been coming to the United States freely," Hadian said.
"I think it wasn't a fair decision [President Trump] made," she continued.
Hadian said her rights and the rights of other immigrants and refugees are now in jeopardy under what they consider Trump's Middle Eastern visa ban.
Hadian wants the president and his administration to know what kind of harm this crackdown might cause families and their loved ones.
