I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT A STEAMING MEASURE OF CONCERN. THE LETTER DOESN'T MENTION THE WORD UN-CONSTITUTIONAL ONCE. AND I THINK THAT IS IMPORTANT. BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENCES OF OPINION ON THIS THE LETTER HAS NOT BEEN SENT MY ISSUE. I HOPE YOU CAN SIGN IT, OUR HOPE E-MAIL. IS TO GET IT OUT THIS AFTERNOON TO PRESIDENT TRUMP SO HE CAN THINK ABOUT THE EXECUTIVE ORDER AND HOW HE WANTS TO PROCEED.
