People who lived here for years who went back home to visit family with all the proper vetting and clearances were barred from coming back to their families; skilled professionals with important jobs here who had been hired or who had left for a vacation were likewise prohibited; reminders of the days of slavery popped into my mind the way families were unfairly separated, wives left home and husbands overseas, children deprived of their parents or siblings, and other horrible actions that should not happen to anyone in America were brought about by the signing of a pen by one man.
Just by the way the number of Americans killed by terrorist acts on American soil by people from any of those seven countries subject to his order over the last 41 years is zero. A country known for producing terrorists and who has sent terrorist to American soil to murder more than 2,500 people is not on the list.
Did you notice how quickly the Executive Order by Trump barring Muslims from seven countries from the United States was put into effect by his underlings? That to me was the frightening thing. No one on the front lines did other than take the most draconian steps to enforce his rule. One Republican in Congress happened to be caught up in the event because there is a strong contingent of immigrants in his district. After telling how “we must keep America safe” he then told how a Syrian Christian family of five who had undergone years of vetting had arrived in Philadelphia where a home waited for them were put back on another plane and sent back to where they came from. That family suffered because Trump’s Muslim ban had to be hidden to include members of a group that were of no threat to America.
There are lots of stories by many people from these countries who have been frightened and no longer look upon America as the home of the brave and the free; as the one last place on earth that people can come to and live in liberty. The country which has been made into the dynamo of the world is being changed by Trump who wants a partnership with Russia –> have you ever heard of large numbers of people seeking to emigrate into in Russia. Everyone is running from there. Trump wants to start making our country into another Russia where no one wants to come. Soon he will be chasing people out of our country.
Imagine that we invaded Iraq so that the people could have a democratic government. We lost over four thousand young men and women to bring them this freedom. Now we bar them from entering our country. How does that make sense? Did we free them so that they could become our enemies? Did we free them so that we can lump them into the terrorist bag? Did all those Iraqis who helped our troops become our enemies?
I wrote how Trump told the Big Lie. Proof of that came from Rudy Guiliani who said on Fox News that Trump called him and told him he wanted to ban the Muslims. He wanted him to come up with a legal way to do it so he could hide the purpose of his executive order. Then Trump lied when he enacted it by saying it was not a Muslim ban. Then some argue it is not a Muslim ban because other Muslim nations were not included even though Trump wanted a Muslim ban.
The greatest danger to our freedom: the leader lying and the forces of the executive going along and blindly following the orders. One problem in society is putting a badge on a person who cannot do anything like question the orders for fear of the pressure from his peers or the need to earn a living by following the desires of his superiors. Don’t ever believe the police forces will protect your liberty if ordered to do otherwise. Sure the law enforcement guy is your neighbor and is the best person that you know but when it comes to orders he is trained to follow them.
How secure in your liberty are you in that case? How secure are you when it is reported that Trump’s agents at the airports are reportedly defying the orders of the courts? Is this what you voted for: chaos. Whether you did nor not that is what you have.
