Less than a day after another US appeals court blocked President Trump’s revised travel ban against Muslim nations that are known to harbor radical Islamic jihadists, top Democrats like Rep. Debbie Wassermann Schultz (FL) are out pushing the notion that the president’s actions are “un-American and unconstitutional.”
While the ban on its face seems a bit broad and intrusive, Trump’s case that “severe” vetting needs to take place before immigrants from these Islamic nations are allowed to enter the U.S., is air tight.
This issue is not about Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, rather its about self-preservation and national security.
Not all Muslims prescribe to jihadism, but there are a quite a few who are terrorists or sympathize with the cause. Wasserman Schultz, who knows better than anyone the grave threat radical Islamists pose, understands all of this, but is probably just doing her job of pushing back against the opposition.
She has seen first hand what Islamists have done in Israel.
Republicans did this during the Obama years. This is the unfortunate game we play in politics.
Trump's Muslim ban is fundamentally un-American and unconstitutional. https://t.co/wU6F0yccXw
