Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked a simple question to leaders of the Republican party Monday night regarding President Donald Trump's immigration orders: Speak up.
The Massachusetts Democrat spoke for more than an hour on the Senate floor, according to The Hill, as Democrats voiced their opposition to Trump's directive that temporarily stops the flow of people from countries with terror ties to the United States.
"Where are the Senate Republicans when their Republican president issues an order targeting one religious group?" Warren said.
Trump's immigration action targets people of all religions from the seven countries in the order, so it is not limited to only Muslims. The affected nations are predominately Muslim, however.
In the past, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Vice President Mike Pence have said they do not favor a ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
"Where are you now, Paul Ryan? Have you rejected President Trump's order to impose a religious test for entering our country?" Warren asked. "Have you introduced a bill to overturn it? You have the power. Where are you?"
Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates on Monday after she refused to defend his immigration directive in court.
