I agree we need to do something. This is not the way to go.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

I can't see how some trump supporters can embrace what trump is doing. It says a whole lot about them, and it's not good. It's a war against Muslims by racists in this country who hate them. It's all going to backfire eventually.

Please stop spreading false information.

The judge's ruling blocks the detainment of those who have already arrived in US airports, period.

Everything else is STILL in effect, including the executive order to suspend entry of all refugees to the United States for 120 days, bar Syrian refugees indefinitely, and block entry into the United States for 90 days for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

I can't believe anyone could think this ban is a good move, not for Trump, or for America. The wider issue is that, in labelling people arriving from these countries as potential terrorists, then you automatically label those in the US, but from these seven countries as potential terrorists. If that is not promoting xenophobia and racism then I'm baffled as to what does.

Trump was elected in large part because of his campaign promise to do exactly what he's done here with the temporary ban. So yeah, a whole bunch of people think it's a good move. It's not something that came as a surprise, everyone knew this was what he planned to do. He didn't backtrack on the issue like he did on the Hillary investigation campaign promise.

Typical Trump haters, attack him for not keeping some campaign promises and attack him for keeping others. sick

The only "tools" are the ones who think taking a soft, gentle, passive approach to terrorism is the best way to address the problem.

And it's funny as hell how America-haters used nearly the exact same phrase when Bin Laden was finally killed. I clearly remember all the criticism of THAT move, in which people like you tried to convince others that his killing would incite massive terrorist recruiting and retribution. How did THAT work out for ya? giggle

You are right of course. There has not been any terrorist attacks at all in the years since Bin Laden was killed.

Your arguments would be laughable if it wasn't because they are the arguments made by the most powerful and probably the most dangerous man in the world right now.

It´s one thing to say that they won´t accept Muslim refugees from certain countries but an entirely different thing if they won´t let in permanent residents and even green card holders.

Trump said that there needs to be some serious vetting, something that, according to him, should have been done years ago but what most Trump fans don´t know is that exactly that, strict vetting, has always been done very thoroughly since 9/11.

Besides, this executive order equals religion with ethnicity. Most racists automatically say that being against Muslims is not racist because Islam is a religion, not an ethnicity but in this case thousands of people from a certain ethnic background are not being let in because of their ethnic background.

How are they going to tell if someone from , say, Iran or Syria is truly a devout Muslim? He or she could easily be agnostic, atheist, Christian, or Jewish, or Alewite.

Besides, pigeonholing all members of a certain religion and assuming they might be terrorists is just pliain stupid and racist.

I agree with you, however, that this should come as no surprise because this is something he said he´d do once he´s elected. It´s still a stupid thing to do.

And very unconstitutional.

Hell, name one that was done with connections to al qaeda.

So you think it´s ok to ban green card holders and permanent residents from re-entering their new homecountry America? And it´s ok to separate husbands and wifes, mothers and children, and whole families? Just because they happen to be from a certain ethnic background? Despite their green card and visa ?

You are absolutely right. How can banning millions of people, some of whom have been living legally in the US for some time be a good thing? I've just been reading that Mo Farah, who is Somalian born and who has lived in the US for 4 years might now be affected by the ban. This makes the threat seem much bigger than it actually is, and is wildly racist and xenophobic move to make.

Besides, who has committed the terrorist attack in Orlando - a local citizen of the USA or have I dreamed of it?

Donald, what about saudi arabia, why are not these muslim hardliners on your list? Do you have good business relationships there or have you forgotten where the 9/11 terrorists came from?

How much harm can a president inflict on his country and the world in an even shorter time? Does Donald even think of the consequences of his doings, or is he simply missing any overview of the simplest contexts in this world?

Why do you destroy your own future for no reason?

The free world is now afraid of the US - I still can not believe it but it is just like that

Well at least you're not saying it's discrimination against Muslims, so we're making progress!!!

Fact remains, those 7 particular countries weren't pulled out of Trump's ass. There's a well documented trail of terrorism leading directly to those countries. The United States of America has a right to defend itself, deciding who TEMPORARILY can and cannot enter the country is it's right in order to protect it's citizens (both legal and illegal, BTW). Doing so is a MUCH better option than bombing the shit out of those countries ... wouldn't you agree? If you have a better option, please do share.

Banning known terrorists, drug dealers and criminals from coming to USA forever. Prosecution of ISIS sympathizers they can be tracked down.
