North Iowans ‘ticked’ over Steckman and Ragan backing of lawsuit against Trump

Representative Sharon Steckman and Senator Amanda Ragan approve of Tom Miller’s lawsuit against President Donald Trump

MASON CITY – North Iowans who attended the Feb. 10 Legislative Listening Post hosted at the Mason City public Library by Rep. Sharon Steckman and Sen. Amanda Ragan are voicing dismay over the support expressed by the two lawmakers for a lawsuit which Iowa’s Attorney General, Tom Miller, is backing. In an interview with National Public Radio’s Audie Cornish, Mr. Miller stated on Jan. 30, 2017 that he has joined with 15 other state Attorneys General in support of federal lawsuits against President Trump’s Executive Orders on immigration. Miller announced his support of an amicus curiae brief that has been filed to stop the Trump administration from issuing temporary bans on the entry of people from nations with high numbers of Muslims. According to Tom Miller, “immediate and irreparable harms” may result from this Executive Order. In his interview, which aired on NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’, on Jan. 30, Miller acknowledged that his candidate, Hillary Clinton, won only seven Iowa counties and just 42 percent of the vote in the 2016 presidential election. Nonetheless, he told NPR that he feels it’s wrong to “restrict severely Muslims from coming to this country.”

Clear Lake resident Sara Krull, who attended Saturday’s Listening Post, told NIT that, “I posed the question to both legislators, Steckman and Ragan, about the immigration lawsuit filed against President Trump.  Steckman said she supported it, right away.  I had to keep asking Ragan until she finally answered me and said ‘yes’ she agrees with Miller’s lawsuit.“

Tom Miler, Iowa Attorney General

A Northwood subscriber, speaking on condition of anonymity, told NorthIowaToday.com that “aliens have no constitutional rights. Why is this slick-talking lawyer, Tommy Miller, trying to stop the President from taking actions that are designed to protect Americans?” Others who attended the Listening Post are also livid over this lawsuit, and Steckman’s and Ragan’s endorsement of it.

A Nora Springs resident told NIT that, “U.S. law allows Presidents to apply the law to deny entry to those deemed potentially unfit by our chief executive. This beloved country is sinking lower and lower on account of this kind of stuff; America’s safety is threatened by terrorists. Iowans must support efforts to ban those who might wish us harm. If we can’t control who gets in, there won’t be a country.”

But at their Listening Post on Feb. 10 at the Mason City public Library, state Representative Sharon Steckman and state Senator Amanda Ragan both expressed approval of Tom Miller’s actions to challenge President Trump’s Executive Orders on this issue. The listening post, which was also attended by Globe-Gazette reporter Molly Montag, focused chiefly on the collective-bargaining issue, which is of major concern to public employees. The Legislators were responding to a question from a constituent (Krull) when they endorsed Miller’s legal maneuvering around President Trump’s Executive actions.

Another NIT reader, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, “As a veteran who values our safety, I’m ticked off that these local politicians endorsed this crap. If Steckman and Ragan get their way, why, innocent, law-abiding Americans could become victims. They’d better change their thinking on this. If they won’t, then we need to elect some Legislators who are for America, and not for these foreigners.”

    Sharon and Amanda have crapped in their nest. I can see just by looking at all these comments, that most the people who are pissed at them are not Republitard’s. Their workers, they just don’t want no muslim’s here. I agree, with them on this one to. So does my friends. But why oh why did they do this. Why do they endorse what Miller has done. I will still vote for Steckman and Ragan because their for the working folks. But their being dumb on this here. Please take back your being for this law suits. Last night at the Willow run alot of people were talking about this, and there not happy. Stop doing this.

    Wow..I read these comments..with a slight exception..they are barely readable. If you don’t think we need to keep the brightest and best teachers with decent salaries and benefits educating this generation, you are dumber than you sound. How many of you are still paying student loans as adults ? You get out of school to teach your kids, with a minimum of $ 20,000 in student loans. and you have the audacity to bitch ? And if you want to teach special education or behavioral disorder classrooms, you have to have Master’s degree. another 20 K..then you have to take classes each year to keep your license..@ $350 to $500 per class. Teachers then buy all their own classroom supplies and supplies for kids who cannot afford them..A couple of weeks ago, a teacher I know bought some kids some snow boots hats and gloves ..parents could not afford. One kid had outgrown their clothes so they bought that too. I am not whining about teachers I know doing all of this..they gladly do it ! But it is not fair for people to disrespect and show disdain for the very people that take care of your kids everyday !

Its about Steckman and Ragan taking sides against Trump, how he wants to keep out them muslim’s. Nice try, tho.

    People who call themselves Christians and support Trump need to re-read their Bibles. It teaches about love,respect,acceptance, compassion,morals. Donald Trump is a very evil, hateful, racist man who molests women and has no respect for anything or anyone. Everything the Bible is against. He doesn’t care about you or this country. Only himself and power.

      Donald Trump loves America and respects Americans. If he’s so racist, why did blacks, hispanics and jews vote for him? Anybody who loves America and Americans would not endorse Mr. Miller’s lawsuit against our President’s orders to keep Muslims out. Even Heaven has a gate, and Jesus and God and St Pete don’t let everybody in who wants in. You have to live right to get past them pearly gates. But since your a Democrat I bet you do not know this because your probably a athiest. You sure talk like Amanda, are you her?

    @ Anonymous, ok you say down there, name just one Muslim terrorist has came to this country illegally. WTF. The ones that kill people and this does include them that flew the planes on 911, they got here legally. That is the problem. We do not need or want more Muslims, we don’t want to take any chances they might be bad ones. Keep them out until everybody that is a citizen is doing good. I know Americans that are going without, this is not right. So we say no foreigns get in till everybody here is doing good. Why do you defend Miss Ragan and Miss Steckman for being for what Miller is doing to stop the President from keeping them out. Trump is for America, Miller is not, and Ragan and Steckman are not. Now do you know.

    As a lawyer, my profession requires me to always understand what’s happening on the other side. From a legal perspective, there is nothing wrong with filing this complaint against Trump’s impulsive, poorly-written order on immigration. I commend Rep. Steckman and Sen. Ragan for having the courage and wisdom to endorse this action. But in doing so, they handed an issue to Republicans which will cost them votes. Sharon can afford to lose some votes, but Amanda cannot. My law partners and I discussed this at lunch just now. We all agreed that this, and other things like it, can make people who have no reason to vote Republican to support whoever opposes Steckman and Ragan. An attorney who was at the table knows Amanda, and Sharon, and she is going to suggest they change their position on this stupid non-issue.

The north end is filling up with imports don’t respect us or the house they live in, that we all have to pay for! These imports are from Detroit and Chitcago, but them thats from the Subharra desert and places muslims live in are just as bad. It don’t make sense to let more foreigns in here when Americans go without. They smell bad to, worst then the Amish, yes. Amanda gets the big bucks from the kitchen and down to the capital. Sharon gets her fat pension, on count of her being a teacher. People like me, we don’t want no more people here, specially them that wears towels on there heads and prays to Ali 5 X a day. Them two girls, they have lost the votes of me and all the folks lives on my street. No more muslims, no more Tom Miller, no more Sharon, no more Amanda. Give this new Presdent Trump a chance, he is for us, not them. Sharon and Amanda, they got to go. They are bad, yes.

          The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution is not confined to the protection of citizens. It says: ’Nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.’ These provisions are universal in their application to all persons within the territorial jurisdiction, without regard to any differences of race, of color, or nationality; and the equal protection of the laws is a pledge of the protection of equal laws.

      Agreed, Carly. I see down below some Ragan-Steckman groupie says opposing their support of Miller’s lawsuit makes us “all like Hitler.” You can always tell when someone is losing an argument when they start name-calling. Hitler, really?

    I am a Vietnam vet (Binh Dinh Phu, and Song Ve) and this makes my blood boil. I have voted for these two, Steckman and Ragan, in the past. Never again tho, not now. Their support of Miller’s lawsuit makes them as much of traitors as Miller. God bless Donald Trump and damnation to anyone who tries to under-cut his ways of keeping out these Muslims.

      Name just one muslim terrorist that has came into this country illegally. You cant. Stop using the military as a way to justify your opinions. I served in the corps, my father served in vietnam as well. Its really sad that you feel you have more of an opinion than others due to serving in a military branch. There needs to be checks and balances in government, it keeps corruption to a minumum. Donald trump is not a saint, nor does he have a very good background. I dont care what others try to claim he may or may not do. The president is not immune to ridicule. A true patriot would understand that fighting for the rights of others includes everyone, not just who they see fit.

    What a waste of time this lawsuit is. These tax n spend dems blow my tax dollars on frivolous crap every chance they get. They don’t know the real world and what us common folk actually have to go through. Heck they even get full coverge insurance for $20 bucks. I pay $851 per month! Dam cheaters.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Steckman and Ragan are Hillary Liberals. They just don’t represent the views of their constituents any better than Hillary, who got 42% in Iowa against Pres. Trump. I agree with Suzy, they both need to go. What Tom Miller is doing is anti-American. Pathetic these two are for this law suit. Get them out.

      @ Brian, I see that you and Suzy Q took a break from your KKK meeting to bash our state legislators. Your bigotry is flagrant, and you and your ilk are hopeless. Not all muslims are bad people. Racists like you make me sick, and I am proud of Amanda and Sharon for expressing their support of Mr. Miller’s challenge to the Klansman who now occupies the White House. Your are full of hate, Brian.

        Damn, you are totally ignorant. Everytime you disagree with someone you call them a racist when the real racist are the people doing the calling. Muslims are the ones killing people all over the world and you have your head so far up your ass you can’t see it.

    With the limited number of people responding I would say most people are happy they supported Tom Miller or they just don’t care.

      @ Suzy, I just read this to my buddies here at the OP we think it is sick what Ragan & Steckman said. Probably Sharon will keep winning, she is a D in Mason, a D town, tough to beat that. But we will make Amanda pay, on count of we will remeber this crap next year. It is not that far off, we won’t let her off the hook. Bye bye Amanda, AKA Hillary w/o the botox and tummy tuck and face-lift.

        @ tire, I see all you Republitard’s are out in force, spread the hate. Amanda and Sharon are good to say this. Loser’s like you hate on people that just want to better them selfs. Trump will be impeach, all you hater’s will be dead some day just like him, I wish. I am real proud of Sharon and Amanda for voicing their in favor of Mr Miller law suit, he is taking on Donald T. Rump, he is not my president. Trump, he is just like Archy Bunker come to live in the white house. Shame on you, you people that hate’s on Sharon and Amanda, your all like Hitler.

          Wrong dummy, Trump will be around for four years so pucker up cause he will beat this baloney law suit over his ban and it will become enforceable. Miller and Steckman and Regan supporting a law suit is pure politics and nothing to do with the law. Wake up and wise up.

          Trump is not your president you say? Possibly one of the stupidest remarks one could make. Unless you live and have legal citizenship outside of the U.S., Trump is in fact, your president! That is how this country works.Get a clue.
          P.S. Hillary will never run again, let alone win.

            I agree. I also think it is curtains for Amanda. The woman has no idea of what is coming. Our daughter’s BF works for the man we hope takes Ragan on. We are Democrats, but we will never vote for Amanda again.

            You can add me and my husband to that list, our neighbors, too. We don’t like Muslims, keep them out. We are Democrats for the Donald. Why is Amanda doing this? Everybody gets why Sharon is for Miller and his lawsuit, it is on count of Al. He is just that way. But Jim is a vet, loves this country. Why doesn’t his wife? When she sends us birthday cards this year, we will write return to sender. No more of this lady, she is against America. Shame on you Amanda.
