OPINION and FACT 2/4/2017
“Barrack Obama, back in 2014 was to press the UN security council to pass a sweeping new resolution that would impose a travel ban on fighters intent on enlisting in overseas wars, and failure to do so would impose sanctions on the countries that failed or refused to implement the travel ban.” So what is the difference by imposing a travel ban on known ISIS sympathizer countries from coming to/traveling to the USA? There is no difference. Failure to protect American lives is a travesty perpetrated by Federal Judge James Robart. Hopefully this can be overturned, and President Trumps temporary ban will stand. White House halt to Federal Judges Order
UPDATE: US Federal Appeals Court has rejected the Trump Administrations request to immediately reinstate the Travel Ban which was blocked by a Federal Court judge.
Reported by The Associated Press: “The 9th US Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco has asked the challengers of the ban to respond by early Monday, and for the Justice Department to file a counter response by the evening.”
The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 gives the President the power without congressional approval, to suspend immigration of aliens that he deems detrimental to our USA interests and in so doing is meant to protect us. Why are people opposed to US citizens being protected? Many people are under the wrong impression that what he is doing is racist, because they believe he is singling out Muslims. This absolutely is not the case. I understand this may leave people who had visa’s no way to return to the US, but we must remember this ban is only temporary. Some maybe inconvenienced for a short period. You would think the Muslim population here in the USA would support his temporary ban if only to prove they do not stand with terrorism! People declaring his ban being solely on the Muslim religion, which would be unconstitutional is a way to get around his ban. My question is that is Islam actually a religion? Not really, because it has incorporated laws into it (Sharia law). This of course is an arguing point.
Saiid Rabiipour, an Iranian immigrant who came to the US in 1973, fully supports President Trump’s travel ban saying “Let’s pause and re-evaluate ourselves. That’s the message I got from Mr. Trump.” “Mr. Saiid graduated from the Citadel with a business degree and settled in Western North Carolina. He is the author of a book called “Trapped in Iran,” featuring the unexpected and dangerous challenges visiting family back home.” You can read the article here.
Maybe there should have been exceptions for some such as the humanitarian aid organizations, which need visas to move around between countries quickly, this is the only exception I could think about.
Congressman David Valadao (R) from Hanford who represents parts of Bakersfield and Kern County issued a statement on President Trump’s travel ban: “Keeping my constituents safe is my highest priority and I support strengthening screening procedures to ensure Americans are protected from foreign threats. However, these issues are complex and should not be addressed through hasty, unclear Executive Actions. Instead, the President and Congress should work together towards a thoughtful, constructive solution to strengthen our national security while upholding our American values.” Some information was used above from the Associated Press.
There are seven countries included in the ban that were not permitted to enter the US for 90 days: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. They were not to be issued immigrant or non-immigrant visa. If they have a dual nationality with a non-restricted country, they would not have been affected as long as they travel on the passport from the other country.
