Immigrants have long served in our military as a means to show their love of America and as a path to citizenship... Donald Trump and Republicans have gleefully revoked that program."

I Was a Muslim in the Trump White House—and I Lasted Eight Days

I Was a Muslim in the Trump White House—and I Lasted Eight Days | Current Events, Political & This & That | Scoop.it
When President Obama left, I stayed on at the National Security Council in order to serve my country. I lasted eight days.
Olgy Gary's insight:
From the article: "Like most of my fellow American Muslims, I spent much of 2016 watching with consternation as Donald Trump vilified our community. Despite this––or because of it––I thought I should try to stay on the NSC staff during the Trump Administration, in order to give the new president and his aides, a more nuanced view of Islam, and of America's Muslim citizens. I lasted eight days."
