SILVER SPRING, Md. -- Congressmen and some of Maryland's top politicians met with Maryland residents in a town hall forum to discuss what could be done to stop some of President Trump's executive orders.
The event was open to the public, and organizers said they issued more than two thousand tickets.
The topic of the forum, coined by progressive Maryland advocacy groups was, “How the people and congress can stop a lawless president.”
The meeting was meant to create a space where Maryland residents could voice their concerns directly to lawmakers.
Healthcare, immigration, deportation, and Russia were all major topics as senators took to the stage.
“I can tell you this, when President Trump tries to move this nation in the wrong direction, we are going to speak out, act out and stand together,” expressed Senator Ben Cardin.
Speakers included, Congressman Jamie Raskin, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen, Congressman Anthony Brown, Congressman John Delaney, Congressman John Sarbanes, Council members of Montgomery County Council, and Maryland State Delegates and Senators.
