Thanks to a ruling by the Supreme Court, Trump’s travel ban has been reinstated.
This prevents people from entering from certain countries, until better vetting can be put into place. But there can be exceptions to that rule.
Such was the case of six girls from Afghanistan. The President himself allowed them to enter for this one reason.
From Daily Wire:
President Donald Trump has reversed a decision to deny visas to six Afghan girls hoping to participate in an international robotics competition next week.
The State Department, which dismissed the girls’ visa requests at least twice, had elicited criticism, prompting the White House to step in.
Dina Powell, Trump’s deputy national security advisor for strategy, said, “The State Department worked incredibly well with the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that this case was reviewed and handled appropriately. We could not be prouder of this delegation of young women who are also scientists — they represent the best of the Afghan people and embody the promise that their aspirations can be fulfilled. They are future leaders of Afghanistan and strong ambassadors for their country…”
The girls, hailing from western Afghanistan’s Herat area, built a ball-sorting robot for the FIRST Global Challenge, held between July 16-18 in Washington, D.C.
After applying for visas at the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan, they twice made the trek to Kabul, the Afghan capital, even though the presence of the Taliban could have been a mortal danger.
If we are going to protect this country from radical, Islamic terrorism, we need to prove to the world that we mean it. That includes allowing people into the country that do not pose a threat, or in fact have faced real dangers in coming here.
I’m sure some conservatives don’t like this exception to the rule, but it largely debunks many of the left’s attacks on Trump. He’s anti-women? Then why did he help these six girls? He’s anti-Muslim? Then why did he make a special exception for these six Muslims?
Obviously when faced with the facts, the left’s ridiculous narrative against our President falls apart. We need to applaud his efforts to navigate the murky waters of national security with skill and intelligence.
We should share these kinds of stories, simply because it’ll upset liberals.
