President Trump's Executive Order Ban
Aren't you sick to death of the now over-used expression--"This is what America Stands for?" It doesn't stand for immigrants entering our country who want to do us harm.
"U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, former mayor of West Palm Beach, joined the protest, which was organized by Women’s March Florida and South Florida Activism. She just had to give us all her political bull...politics before our country. The executive order applies only to non-U.S. citizens, so anyone with U.S. citizenship—whether that person in natural-born or naturalized—is not affected. But on Sunday, Reince Preibus, the White House chief of staff, said on NBC’s Meet the Press that Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents would have the “discretionary authority” to question U.S. citizens coming from the seven countries. CBP agents have had that authority even before Friday’s executive order."[The Atlantic]
This is NOT a Muslim ban. If it were, Trump missed the top ten Muslim nations in the world. Do we know who these people are who are coming into our country? Are they vetted thoroughly? The Press and politics is blowing this out of proportion to suit their agenda. Hold Donald Trump to the same standard as Barack Obama.
For 120 days, the order bars the entry of any refugee who is awaiting resettlement in the U.S. It also prohibits all Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. until further notice. Additionally, it bans the citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries—Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen—from entering the U.S. on any visa category.
