It is anticipated the president will sign another executive order as soon as Thursday blocking visas from nations such as Iraq, Syria, Iran and Libya for at least 30 days, according to the Associated Press. After proposing his controversial Muslim ban, Trump later said he would impose a system of "extreme vetting" and regularly floated the idea of a Muslim registry to track Muslims already in the country.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright made headlines Wednesday after she tweeted a message saying she is ready to register as a Muslim.
'I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish.
Trump has previously told an NBC reporter in November that he would "absolutely" require Muslims to register in a database. She, however, is not the only public figure tweeting this sort of message in solidarity with Muslim immigrants.
Albright is not alone in her public proclamation that she would register as Muslim in protest.
Halliburton Beats Earnings Expectations but Warns of International Weakness
Halliburton Company ( HAL ) is an interesting player in the Basic Materials space, with a focus on Oil & Gas Equipment & Services. The stock has been recently noted -0.685% off of the 52-week high of 57.700 and +104.954% off of the 52-week low of 27.960.
Mayim Bialik, star of the sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, is also openly critical of Trump's plan.
Later, the outspoken Trump critic added: "If we're registering people who you think are a threat, register white males too, since most serial killers & mass shooters are white males".
Albright's tweets came in response to news of a draft executive order that would ban refugee admissions for up to four months. America must remain open to people of all faiths and backgrounds.
Many, including Ms Albright, a Czech immigrant, are highly critical of the move - which is rumoured to mean the USA would accept no Syrian refugees.
