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.

It's all about oil and business dealings and yes I voted for Trump and Bush before him.

I disagree with that. The order states, "I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order." Specifically, the order targets people from countries originally listed by the Obama administration as terrorist hotbeds -- Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

Trump is sending a message to the oil producers, 'don't mess with me and my oil and business interests" soon we will hear about the pipeline traversing these countries and lift sanctions on russia so they only moderately interfere. It's all about oil and control of the stream, end of story!

We'll see. Was that why Obama restricted the very same countries for fostering radicals? Trump is smart. He's NOT corrupt.

Yes, that's the reason Obama did that. Everyone in politics is a liar looking out for themselves and lobbyists. Not much difference in Republican and Democrat agendas just look at the Clintons
