As a constituent I urge you to join state legislators and governors from around the United States and issue a public statement opposing a Muslim registry and mass deportations. Please let me know that you have done so. Thank you.
Senator Van Duyn’s response:
Discrimination of this kind is clearly unconstitutional and morally repugnant to me, and is certainly NOT what the people of Buncombe County sent me to Raleigh to do. I will not hesitate to stand against any such legislation.
Thank you for your advocacy on this very important issue. It defines who we are as Americans.
