On Monday, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump delivered a passionate national security speech in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack. He reinstated his call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration, wanting to keep Americans safe through a moratorium of those from terror-stricken countries.
“The immigration laws of the United States give the president powers to suspend entry into the country of any class of persons,” Trump said in New Hampshire, according to The Hill.
“I will use this power to protect the American people. When elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we fully understand how to end these threats.”
That’s just common sense. Liberals can be incredibly irrational in their “love” for minorities — who, as we saw in Orlando, don’t always get along.
The United States should not assist, nor have anything to do with, places where the government is advocating and sponsoring Islamic terrorism.
“It will be lifted, this ban, when, as a nation, we are in a position to properly and perfectly screen these people coming into our country. They are pouring in and we don’t know what we are doing,” Trump said.
Hillary Clinton finally slammed the Orlando shooting as “radical Islamism,” but she is well-known as a classic “all talk, no action” politician — in fact, she will make the situation much, much worse.
She unabashedly plans to increase the influx of refugees from Middle Eastern countries by nearly five times the current number.
While the world is still reeling from the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub, we need to remember that attacks like this can be prevented through proper measures — a travel ban, proper screening and situational discernment.
It would also help if we chucked political correctness out the window — when American’s safety is at stake, we cannot get bogged down in what’s proper or improper to say.
