The media and the left have been going NUTS over President Donald Trump’s so-called “Muslim ban” on immigrants.
That’s pretty much all that’s been talked about since Trump signed an executive order barring those from certain countries from coming into America for the next 90 days.
The countries – Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria Sudan, Yemen and Somalia – are populated by mostly Muslims. But know what else the countries have in common?
They’re terror hotspots, known around the world as breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists.
And Trump is simply trying to keep America’s citizens safe from terrorists and jihadi-wanna-bes who would use the porous borders as a means of entering and setting up terror shops. That’s part of the reason his weekly list of immigrant felonies absolutely SHOULD exist.
And his border clamp-down, while bemoaned by liberals, has nonetheless received high praise from someone who would know first-hand what it’s like to battle jihadis.
This, from Johnny Walker, the guy who served as Chris Kyle’s Iraqi translator during the Iraq War, the Independent Journal Review reported: “I agree with President Trump’s decision.”
Exactly. It’s common sense. And here’s another integral part of the message:
“All President Trump is doing is ensuring that people can go about their day without living in so much fear. Women won’t have to worry about walking around the mall; kids won’t have to worry about going to the school.
Look, these countries don’t have a database that keeps track of its citizens. And we can’t depend on a government database in countries that do, because if they have one it has a political agenda behind it.
It wouldn’t be hard for someone to get into the U.S. whose loyalty lies with ISIS or a militia aligned with Iran. While the militia isn’t necessarily our enemy right now, they don’t have loyalty to the U.S., they are loyal to the interests of the government that funds them. And that government says “Death to America.”
ISIS’s strongholds are in Iraq and Syria. We all know what they want to do to Americans.”
Walker is correct; those seven countries named in Trump’s order don’t maintain databases of names of terrorists and terror suspects. So there is nothing to track them with; nothing to check their backgrounds against.
Even if they did, America would still have to be cautious. It’s not as if those countries’ governments were exactly friends with the West, which is why Trump is arming up for some hugely aggressive tactics.
No, the truth is that ISIS has a massive presence in Iraq and Syria, and the terror group hasn’t exactly been secretive about its hatred for the West and aims to take out both America and Israel.
Trump’s executive order isn’t a ban on religion. It’s a security measure for the American people.
And the fact the left doesn’t want to see it that way only shows how entrenched leftists’ are in their goal to keep the borders porous.
