Fake News, Executive Orders and Immigration

In a letter previous year to Roman Catholics, Trump pledged, "I will defend your religious liberties and the right to fully and freely practice your religion, as individuals, business owners and academic institutions".

But while they mean well, non-Muslim opponents of the ban still have to be careful not to repeat risky stereotypes when pushing back against this extreme action. Since there weren't any refugees named in the case, the Judge didn't address their status in relation to the executive order.

To begin, I was seriously concerned when I read alterations to the law may be made in order to "prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual's country of nationality". Washington state, the first to challenge the ban in court, noted in its lawsuit Trump's interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on the day he signed the order, in which he "confirmed his intent to prioritize Christians in the Middle East for admission".

The first myth is that Trump has banned Muslim immigration.

However, many people are still being detained and sent back to their countries.

Nor have any of the 10 percent of total legal immigrants in America who are Muslims. Corporate America, the arts community, scientific fields, the medical profession, academic institutions, sports teams and labor unions are up in arms over Trump's travel ban, which threatens to disrupt their operations. Green-card holders are permanent US residents who have already gone through extensive security screenings that can easily last a year or more. Among all respondents, 52 percent said the intent of the executive order was to ban Muslims, and 65 percent said they oppose that. Even putting aside the morality of the policy, its hard-to-understand inclusion of some predominantly Muslim nations but not others, and the freaky way it was developed and rolled out, it is having a major effect on America's global security, much of it negative. "It's that and all the executive orders he's issuing without consent and advice from him team", she said.

Striking to many foreigners who visit the United States is how Americans identify themselves. It causes pain and rips apart families.

"Religious discrimination is generally unconstitutional", he said. Trump is not a regular politician. He said it is necessary to protect Americans from potential terrorists.

"We've allocated to the president the ability on short notice to suspend visas if it's an emergency", Stock added, referring to the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which grants the president the authority to suspend visas from immigrants of certain countries when the U.S.is at war with those countries. Gorton's decision is expected by Sunday. Do you agree with this assessment, have any questionable statements you think should be reviewed or think I missed some key component in my logic?
