Earlier this week, President Trump issued his second executive order on immigration and refugees. His first immigration order did not cite what part of the US Code that gave Trump the authority he actually had to impose the restrictions he imposed for the sake of national security.
Due to the irreconcilable differences between the Democrats and Republicans, it really didn’t matter what Trump stated in his order. Democrats were ready and are still going to fight against everything Trump does, regardless of how right it might be as in the immigration order.
In Trump’s second executive order, he opened it up by stating what gives him the legal authority to issue the order. The first paragraph states:
“By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and to protect the Nation from terrorist activities by foreign nationals admitted to the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:”
However, liberals refuse to acknowledge that the ban is only temporary until a proper vetting system can be created and implemented. Trump’s order is NOT a Muslim ban as it places a temporary ban on everyone from those designated countries, regardless of religion. It includes Christians and others.
Liberals refuse to acknowledge that the open acceptance of refuges places the safety of America and Americans in danger as it has done in France, Belgium, Germany and Great Britain, among others. It baffles me and defies all logic to see so many liberals protest and support foreigners over American citizens.
Now Israel is also facing a similar situation.
First you need to understand that much of the Israeli border is protected by a border wall and/or fence with armed troops patrolling it on a regular basis. It has been very effective in limiting illegal immigration and travel into the country, a lesson that America’s liberals refuse to learn.
Secondly, this week, Israel’s congress, the Knesset, passed a bill placing restrictions on travel to the Jewish nation and their bill is already being compared to Trump’s immigration order. By a vote of 46 to 28, the bill reads in part:
“No visa and residency permit of any type will be given to a person who is not an Israeli citizen or does not have a permit for permanent residency in the State of Israel if he, [or] the organization or entity for which he works, has knowingly issued a public call to impose a boycott on the State of Israel, as defined in the Preventing Harm to the State of Israel through Boycott Law, 5771-2011, or has committed to participate in such a boycott.”
In the report from Fox News:
“Roy Folkman, who sponsored the bill, said the legislation was necessary in order to protect Israel’s ‘name and honor.’ Bezalel Smotrich, who helped spearhead the bill, said it showed that Israel ‘won’t turn the other cheek’ and that it was a ‘natural’ step for any country to take.”
These are concepts that America’s liberals fail to grasp. They care nothing about America’s name or honor and would prefer we not only turn the other cheek, but give everyone except American’s everything we have. Yes, it is the natural step for any country to take in today’s world of rampant Islamic terrorism, but that too is a concept that America’s liberal’s fail to understand or desire.
It’s also ironic that liberals are quick to follow the socialist examples of other countries but flatly reject the examples used by other countries to protect themselves and their people. That pretty much sums up the utter failure and treasonable actions of America’s Democrats and other liberals.
