In another episode of As “The Don” Turns…
U.S. President Donald Trump has recently signed off on an executive order that will prevent hundreds of thousands of legal U.S. residents to return to their rightful homes from trips abroad.
According to a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security the order will bar current visa green card holders from seven countries including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya or Somalia from returning to the United States.
When describing his intention behind the extreme vetting of foreigners The Don had this to say:
“I’m establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. We don’t want them here. We want to ensure that we are not admitting to our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas.”
To zero in on the amount of citizens who may be affected, 25,000 from the seven countries specified in Trump’s ban have been issued student or employment visas and almost 500,000 people have a green card which gives permittance to live and work in the United States.
Jamal Abdi, policy director for the National Iranian American Council, says the 90-day ban is meant to allow the U.S. and the seven targeted countries to discuss what information would need to be shared in order to start granting visas once again. But if no agreement is reached, citizens would remain blocked from entry.
The White House was contacted by propublica.org to gain clarification on the meaning of the executive order but has not received a response.
So let me get this straight. In order to protect the country from radical Islamic terrorist we need to make sure to block those who pose zero threat and have a legal right to live here in the U.S.? Ah, yes Trump! It all makes perfect sense to me now.
Serious business, if ya’ll haven’t already started praying for this man’s callous ways to change and for this nation you better hurry up, because I spy this country going nowhere fast.
