With the recent changing of the guard, as it were, there seems to be a trend in trying to undermine, malign and marginalize the new president, Donald Trump. Because he has the temerity to make necessary changes aimed at both undoing the unconstitutional executive actions of Barack Hussein Obama and protecting the American people, he gets ridiculed. There are some who ignore reality in favor of being loyal to the opposition party. There are also the clueless bandwagon jumpers-on.
One of Trump’s recent actions was signing an order temporarily halting immigration from seven predominately Muslim countries where radical Islamic jihadists (RIJ) reside. They include Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. To be sure, the leftist media, Hollywood liberals and Democrat politicians had temper-tantrums and some became melodramatically emotional, like Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. But they can have their pity fits, this is a necessary precaution. We live in a different time and place in 2017 and we must take every step to keep RIJs out of our country. Liberals don’t seem to understand this, however. They are either blind, ignorant or both, or are willfully trying to stifle liberty and freedom.
To open the border and just allow non-vetted immigrants into the country, knowing full well the likelihood that terrorism will occur in the United States as a result, is the height of stupidity.
There are many justifiable reasons to halt immigration into this country, the number one being to protect Americans from terrorism. RIJs have already infiltrated the United States. In 2009, for example, United States Army Major Nidal Hassan murdered 13 people and injured 30 others in what’s known as the Ft. Hood massacre. In 2015 terrorist immigrant Syed Farook and his terrorist immigrant wife Tashfeen Malik shot up a holiday office party in San Bernardino, California. In 2016 a RIJ went on a terror spree at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida while he declared his allegiance to ISIS. There are myriad other examples. This executive order is not racist, xenophobic or hateful. To insist otherwise is simply ignorant.
Unfortunately, pundits and politicians alike are eager to chime in on matters they know nothing about. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for instance, announced that immigrant “refugees” are welcome in his country. That means that we’ll need to build a wall on the northern border as well as the southern border.
