Ten members of the President's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) submitted their resignation to President Donald Trump, NBC News has learned.

In the letter addressed to Trump and obtained by NBC News on Wednesday, the 10 members approximately two-thirds of the commission stated their objection to the president's "portrayal of immigrants, refugees, people of color and people of various faiths as untrustworthy, threatening, and a drain on our nation."

The letter, dated Feb. 15, lists several of the Trump administration's actions that the members say go against the commission's principles, including proposals to cut federal resources to sanctuary cities, repealing the Affordable Care Act, and banning refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Members also met with former Deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu, and former WHIAAPI executive directors Kiran Ahuja and Doua Thor. via White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders
Among the members who resigned are its chair and vice chair Tung Thanh Nguyen, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco; and Mary Okada, president and CEO of Guam Community College and actor Maulik Pancholy, who told NBC News that the decision to leave was "an emotional and difficult" one.

3. Given what we've seen, how long would Trump have lasted?

He is basically an apprentice

7. You can give him to much credit as even an apprentice has a chance at learning to be a

decent human being during their life.

6. A professor of medicine at UC San Francisco can't afford to be associated with the crazy Trump Train

in any capacity. Nor can anyone with moral integrity and conscience.

Folks are going to be deserting this sinking ship in droves. His "administration" won't be able to keep up with the appointments.

9. This should get much..

.....more media attention. Can you imagine if ten people from one commission had resigned from Obama in one month. It would be a major story.

17. What are the chances he's ever heard of this before?

Chances are he thinks Hawaii is a "fake" state and he couldn't find Guam on a map for a billion dollar prize.
