Once again Donald Trump has opened a dialogue about a controversial issue. As he did with illegal immigration, he has brought to the forefront his desire to keep Americans safe by temporarily banning Muslims from entering the U.S. His critics are from the left and right, calling him a divider and a racist. Those in the Republican establishment hint at preventing the ban by any means, including threatening to sue Trump if he becomes president and issues the executive order. Too bad they have done nothing regarding President Obama’s executive orders. American Thinker asked the chairman of Donald Trump’s national security committee, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), about this issue.
Donald Trump has called for a ban, stating, “Although the pause is temporary, we have to find out what is going on. It will be lifted, this ban, when we as a nation are in a position to properly and perfectly screen this country.”
Even those in the Obama administration question the vetting process. People should not forget that FBI director James Comey has said several times that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct a thorough background check on all the Syrian refugees. Just last week, CIA director John Brennan concurred that Syrian refugees cannot be fully vetted because there are no databases available and that ISIS is working to smuggle Syrians into countries through the refugee process.
