I didn't say Trump is perfect. But I am with him on this terrorism prevention issue. Like Imran said, Let's not focus on religion, let's see the policy for what it is. When people inject racism and religion into an immigration issue they are blurring the lines of good judgement.
Trump first injected religion into this particular executive action by stating that Muslims are barred but Christians and other minority groups are given preferential treatment to Muslims. Does that mean that he did not show good judgement?
If he is favoring Christians over Muslims as immigrants then that is wrong.
He said so on the Christian Science Network last Thursday or Friday.
If Trump said that he is wrong. There are good Muslims and bad Christians, Among others. America has a beautiful system of Gov't that protects its citizens. There are three branches of Gov't each with their own powers - federal, state, and local. And laws have to be passed by Senate and Congress. This is not Guyana where you can do what you want. The President does not have absolute power. Immigration laws are a mandate of the Federal Gov't not by the President. The media and the local politicians are blowing this thing out of proportion. Some for personal gain as there will be local elections in November, 2017.
If Yvette Clark and Chief understood how the law works, they would stay home with their families and drink some nice hot soup, rather than run out in the cold and scream and holler like mad hyenas.
BTW, all day today flights have been landing at JFK from Etihad Airways, Emirates, Qatar, and other airlines and not one Muslim person has been detained so far.
