OMG! They want to keep out all the Muslims?
Well not so much! Yes, the President did launch against Muslims… in 1980. That was President Jimmy Carter. Carter’s Attorney General at the time ordered all Iranian students holding a Visa to report to immigration officials or face immediate deportation. A federal judge ruled it unconstitutional (sound familiar?) BUT, it was then reversed by a higher court in September of 1980. There were over 60,000 students registered. Of that, 430 were deported because of visa issues and concerns. Another 5000 left voluntarily.
Carter also ordered the invalidation of visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the U.S. He stated that we would not reissue visas nor would we issue new visas except for compelling and proven humanitarian aid reasons or where our national interest is at hand and the directive is to be strictly interpreted! (Can someone show me the links to the Democrat Liberal outcry?)
So, let’s just say that Carter’s was OK because it was temporary. So is Trump’s. It’s also been said that Carter’s was different because it didn’t call out a single religion and was dealing with a current crisis. Ah, really? Trump’s is also dealing with a current crisis and the “news” media is lying to us when they say it’s against a religion. It’s not! It’s against nations who harbor terrorism and have ties to ISIS who happen to have a heavy Muslim population.

President Trump is our ‘little Dutch boy’, sticking his finger in the dike to keep us from drowning. If we can reach higher ground where ‘logic’ prevails, we just might be on the road to recovery. An interesting FYI is that the first ban on people of another nation was in 1872 under Pres. Chester Arthur on Chinese. That ban lasted almost 80 years.
These protest defy my reasoning totally. I mean I lock my doors to secure my home and fenced the yard to keep UNwanted critters out….how is this any different? Is not America my HOMEland?
Thanks, Joe for a dose of reality….
