Ban on Muslim countries - does it really make us safe?

Updated on January 28, 2017

False sense of safety?

President Trump just signed an executive order banning immigration from these seven countries - Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.

There is still debate over whether it's fair or not and whether it's humane or not, and humanitarian agencies are fighting that fight.

But following countries are not banned - Pakistan, Lebanon, Egypt, UAE and Saudi Arabia and they have been involved in terrorism activities in America before. This brings up the question whether this is actually making us safe or if it just establishes a false sense of safety.

Allegedly, Trump has business dealings in the countries not banned. But its also possible that another execute order is on the way. In either case, we should be consistent and honest in our policies to truly make sure that we are safe

Watch the daily show video with a grain of salt

Video from daily show captures these concerns really well, ignore the funny stuff, it may or may not be in bad taste depending on which side we are on of this issue. But the point whether tihis executive order actually does anything or is it just for optics still stands

      I understand that the obama administration identified the 7 pro terrorist countries last year? CNN or similar article noted that fact?? So what is all this stuff about trump hotels in other countries being the reason they were not on the so called "Muslim ban " list when it was an old obama team made list that had never been actioned.

      Trump team took surprisingly quick action. I agree with that and the concern regarding how well thought out the travel ban move was ..
