It’s ridiculous that the president has been subjected to so much obstruction from leftist judges as he has worked to go about his job of protecting and securing the nation. The idea of open borders and free and unfettered access to our country and its people has somehow insinuated itself into accepted liberal dogma. It’s as dangerous as it is stupid.
Or is it not stupid at all but simply diabolical? Perhaps the left actually does hate the idea of national borders, and if anyone can enter or leave any country at will, well, we’re all sort of global citizens then, aren’t we? In other words, a nation that does not control the flow of non-citizens into its country to some degree ceases to be a sovereign country. Do you suppose that’s really what the left is all about? It looks that way.
Seen in this light, no wonder the left is in a rage over President Trump’s border and immigration policies. His proposed border wall is a great big “do not enter” sign. And his executive orders that drive liberal federal judges to return nonsensical decisions are just one more impediment to the left’s desire to give away our national security. So our president has just given them another reason to foam at the mouth: He signed an executive order banning travel from eight countries.
“Citizens of eight countries will face new restrictions on entry to the U.S. under a proclamation signed by President Donald Trump on Sunday.
“The new rules, which will impact the citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen, will go into effect on October 18.
“The restrictions rage from full travel bans on nationals from countries like Syria to more targeted restrictions. A suspension of non-immigrant visas to citizens for Venezuela, for instance, applies only to senior government officials and their immediate families.”
Chad, North Korea, and Venezuela have been added to the list. The latter two are no-brainers after recent events, which is why informed liberals are not making much of a row about adding these three on.
In case the left has not noticed, please inform them that there is a war going on in Syria involving folks like ISIS. Only those utterly derelict in their duty to protect Americans would let just anybody from Syria into the US.
“‘As President, I must act to protect the security and interests of the United States and its people,’ reads the proclamation.
“Officials stressed that valid visas would not be revoked as a result of the proclamation. The order also permits, but does not guarantee, case-by-case waivers .
“The restrictions are targeted at countries that Department of Homeland Security officials say refuse to share information with the U.S. or haven’t taken necessary security precautions.”
Note that this is not a permanent ban, but rather partial until America can determine it is safe to receive visitors again. The hammer comes down especially hard on the nations that refuse to cooperate with us, or which have what are determined to be chaotic or otherwise unsatisfactory security precautions of their own.
This makes excellence sense, and would only be opposed by those who wish to attack America, or those who are so dedicated to globalism, that they are willing to toss the security of Americans into the trash to achieve their goals.
Soldier on, President Trump. We are with you.
