Where does Hogan stand?

As one of his first moves after the inauguration, President Donald Trump placed a ban on immigration from seven Muslim countries. Even people with valid green cards were not permitted to re-enter the United States after visiting family and friends or conducting business abroad.

Many governors, including several Republicans, denounced the ban as un-American and unconstitutional. As yet, Gov. Larry Hogan has not made his position known ("Gov. Hogan avoids talking Trump, to the dismay of some in Maryland," Feb. 4).

As a child growing up in the Catholic Church, I learned that there were mortal and venial sins based on acts of commission. There are also sins of omission — that is, not acting when action is required; history reminds us of the consequences. Silence is not neutral.

The citizens of Maryland deserve to know Governor's Hogan's position on President Trump's executive order. Does he approve or disapprove of the ban? Which side is he on?
