Over 325,00 people from other lands flew into the United States this weekend and of that number only 109 were singled our for denial of entry. And concerning the ban on Muslims from around the world, only 13% are covered by the temporary ban, coming from seven nations including Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Yemen and Libya, the principal sources of active terror operations today. It should also be noted that in 2011, President Barack Obama placed a six month ban on entry of certain Iraqi citizens into this country, using the same basis of national security concerns as Trump has used. The President of the United States has broad executive power under the Constitution regarding national security issues and his actions were first described as needed in the report of the 9/11 Commission approximately sixteen years ago.
Part of the problem was that which you find when any new policy is put into action; questions come up among those tasked with enforcement and must be resolved before actions is taken and this slows down the process. And then, of course, there was the usual immediate response of protestor groups, instantaneously showing up to block travelers and traffic into and out of airports as if they just appeared by a miracle. No, they are just part of the organized anarchy groups that are routinely dispatched by those desiring to harm America with organized chaos.
But we can't forget the acting skills of Senator Charles Schumer and his manufactured tears which, as President Trump correctly said, don't match the style of the New York Senator who never can avoid the opportunity for camera time. And even today, Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia addressed and organized a protest inside of Dulles Airport, sounding like a mad man as hurrying travelers asked the Senator and his entourage to quit blocking traffic. Frankly, that may not even be legal in proximity to security lines which is where it took place. Kaine, a first term Senator who is up for reelection, obviously hopes to inspire the protestors to work on his campaign which could very well be uphill after his miserable vice presidential campaign performance.
The bottom line: What Trump was doing is what a President is supposed to do - insure the security of his nation and her citizens. America has no obligation to allow any non-citizens into the country if safety is a question. Security and national defense are the President's first and foremost duties under the Constitution. And I ask the reader, whether you agree with the process or not, who are you going to blame if you or a loved one is harmed by an illegal roaming around in America like we've already witnessed or which is daily in other nations like Germany. Admit it - you are going to blame the President of the United States.
How about we just let him do the job which he was elected to do, for whether you like to admit it or not, he is the President of the United States. Let's use a little common sense for a change.
