People reading my Facebook posts might not think I’m pro-immigration, but let me be perfectly clear… I am for legal immigration.
President Trump signed an order yesterday banning immigration and visitors from 7 countries designated by former President Obama as countries where extreme caution is required before accepting immigrants, refugees or other visitors for a period of 90 days depending on the news article you read. Or forever if you believe the leftwing vitriol being bandied about after Trump used Obama’s law as intended. FWIW, Obama banned all Iraqi persons for 6 months in 2011 and was praised as a hero for doing so.
Keep in mind that this order was given after several of the top executives of the Department of State resigned and left leadership vacuum in the agency responsible for vetting all foreign persons coming to the U.S.
Yes, we need immigrants and are a nation of immigrants from the beginning of our history. We welcome people to our nation daily, and we wish them prosperous lives under our laws and traditions. We don’t however allow their laws to be brought here, and we don’t allow traditions that fly in the face of our laws (Sharia among others).
So please do come here legally. Learn our language so you can navigate our great nation and see all that it has to offer. Get a job and pay your own way. Work hard and you will prosper here.
If you don’t like those basic tenets of our society and nation, then maybe you should stay where you are and try to fix your own nation instead.
For all the whiners complaining about President Trump’s EO that put in place the temporary ban, you can read the full text over at CNN. When you are done there please go read President Obama’s ban from 2011 which was much more onerous.
This small section of Trump’s EO is perhaps the best as it says clearly who he is and follows what he said on the campaign trail many times.
The United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.
The full text of the “ban” EO is here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/28/politics/text-of-trump-executive-order-nation-ban-refugees/.
I for one am glad we have a President that is going to enforce all existing laws instead of just the ones he likes and has already started working with Congress to get rid of laws that he doesn’t like and to get rid of onerous regulations that make no sense.
God Bless America.
