Since President Trump signed the executive order for his immigration ban, many have voiced their opinion -- from protesters at airports to celebrities. One woman's message in particular, however, is quickly going viral.

Renee Wetzel was the wife of Michael Wetzel, one of the victims of the San Bernardino shooting. In late 2015, two shooters opened fire in the Inland Regional Center, killing 14 people; it is regarded as a terrorist attack.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer cited the shooting as a reason for the immigration ban. Wetzel, however, disagrees. She shared her protest sign on Facebook:

"My husband was murdered in the San Bernardino terrorist attack by radicalized Islamic terrorists," the sign says. "I do not support Trump's immigration freeze."

Wetzel wrote on Facebook that she does not think banning entire groups is the right path to take. "This is against everything our country stands for," she wrote. "Not all Muslims are terrorists and we, as a country, should not be lumping them together like they are."

Wetzel's message has garnered thousands of likes and shares.
