Travel Ban Needed to Prevent Intolerance in US

That would be news to Congress, which in 2015 passed a new immigration law limiting immigration from four of the countries on Trump's list, and to former President Obama, who halted all refugee immigration for six months from Iraq in 2011 for the same reason Trump is acting now: to install better security measures against terrorists posing as refugees to enter the country. For now, President of the United States has amply demonstrated he is no different from narrow-minded religious chauvinists elsewhere in the world.

The White House, defying all common sense, justified its newly minted discriminatory policy by citing 9/11 even though no national from any one of these seven countries had any involvement with that attack or in any terrorism in the US since then. The data is clear. The Daily Mail had carried a front-page headline calling the judges in that case, who ruled that Parliament must vote to start the process of leaving the EU, "Enemies of the People".

What the order has, in fact, done is cancel the visas of up to 100,000 individuals.

He explained that his order will ensure that people entering the nation share United States values, including the right to religious liberty, Sputnik reported. This has produced deeply moving stories of separated families, broken promises, shattered dreams and personal hurt that have intensified anti-American sentiment. It is nearly the first thing every school child, in America or elsewhere in the world, learns about the US Constitution. We always find a way to face them. As one respondent noted: "I love America".

"Extreme vetting" to me is just racism in disguise.

Donald Trump is introduced at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 2nd, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The anger and hatred generated will make it more hard for moderate Muslim leaders to cooperate with the U.S. At home, a Muslim community under siege - and faced with rising hate crimes - is likely to become more closed, not less, and less cooperative, not more. ISIL must be pleased.

This ban, went the weekend wail, is the "Muslim ban" of the Trump campaign. The state of Hawaii on Friday joined the challenge to the order, filing a lawsuit alleging that the order is unconstitutional and asking the court to block the order across the country.

Several top Democratics rally against the order and vow to stall confirmation votes on Trump cabinet nominees. It may not simply be coincidental that the countries listed for bans are those where Trump's company does no business, while the nations from which the 9/11 attackers came - and yet are exempted - are places where Trump has done or tried to do business. All in all a record number of Muslims.

Almost twice as many Americans have been killed by rightwing extremists since 9/11 as have died at the hands of radical Muslims on US soil.

UC has many global students taking part in student organizations and other areas that help the school thrive. The president claims his ban will keep America safe. In this context, an administration-led anti-Muslim bias has taken a toll.

The fallout will continue. But we can't stop American cars from killing Americans.

ISIL is, no doubt, an evil movement that must be defeated. Others believe there will be fresh political and military alliances which will weaken the United States. Second, the word "surprise" in the headline applies mostly to the media and urban liberals who saw a large, emotional backlash against the Trump administration's policy, and wrongly assumed it was a tectonic popular uprising.

Patriots' Martellus Bennett questionable but ready for Super Bowl
You could be a system game for 15 years as long as you're winning and you're getting your team to Super Bowls, I'm cool with that. Jr., a sophomore offensive lineman for the Wolverines, he rarely misses a game - even the loss against Ohio State this year.
