Our country has experienced a lot of shock over the last few months. The elections caused riots and massive upheaval. Thousands marched on Washington over the perceived threat of Donald Trump. And most recently the media has vilified Donald Trump, saying he’s banning Muslims.
But that’s not the case at all. President Trump recently announced a short-term ban on 7 countries which are predominantly Muslim. And truth be told, he might have botched the execution of how he messaged it.
But folks should give the man a break. He has done in more in 11 days than Obama did in months, but he still learning the rope of being President. You don’t automatically know everything.
So Donald Trump issued a statement, clarifying what he did.
“There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.”
Trump said America will be issuing visas again to all countries once “we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.”
Trump on Friday signed an executive order calling for a 90-day ban on nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. The order also includes a 120-day halt on admitting refugees and an indefinite pause on admitting refugees from Syria.
“I have a tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria,” he said.
“My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering.”
The left has been so divisive with their treatment of President Trump. There’s been name calling and citywide protests and even threats on his life.
But President Trump campaigned on making America great again. That includes making our citizens safe. This means watching people who continue to go and return from countries identified as terrorist sympathizers.
And this hasn’t been directed at US citizens. The policy was issued to protect our citizenry. That’s a key difference.
This isn’t a roundup.
This is a review of policy to prevent our country’s generosity from being abused. We are a country birthed from immigrants and that won’t change. But there are few other countries in the world which have experienced an attack on their home soil which killed thousands.
And there are no other countries in the world which take resettled refugees in the same capacity as the US. So it makes total sense to ensure the policies we have in place should be evaluated in light of what’s happening in Syria, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya.
That entire region is destabilized by ISIS, a militant arm of Islam which has threatened war against the US. They have actively used refugee cover in the past to insert soldiers to do their bidding. And Obama named these seven countries initially-Trump just followed in this footsteps. So the collective public who lost their minds should take note of that before they start slandering President Trump and hating on the USA as a racist nation.
