Do you know that the travel ban is because those countries lost control over their legit passports?
ISIS got control of Iraqi passports when the captured Mosul. Al Quaeda got such control in parts of Yemen. ISIS controls parts of Syria where passport materials were available, etc. Until we can identify the real from the stolen, we need added security, which is what this temporary travel ban is designed to give the USA. If you stop to think of that, isn't the temporary ban justified?
No it isn't justified at all. It isn't as if someone with a fake passport could merely jump on an airplane and enter the US, or any other country that easily. These prospective US citizens have all gone through exhaustive background checks for an average of 18 months. They have well respected people vouching for their loyalty and for some, their putting themselves--and their families--in peril for assisting the US military in the fight against terror.
The ban is simply the new president's attempt at placating his base by keeping his campaign promise of a Muslim ban. This ban has made the terrorists extremely happy and will further their goal. Thanks Don!
Do I recall correctly that there were (and are?) government agencies that have gone on record that full and accurate vetting for some incoming refugees has not been done to our standards?
Not that I am aware of, Demas. But perhaps you can update me as to this claim?
This is a fascinating perspective. I hated going into East Berlin and having to show my papers. Back out was the same. Mexico and Vietnam still require papers to walk about. Iran, Yeman, Somalia and Lybia still do. Who cares, not valid papers -- bye.
You can put this into your search bar: " Problems with vetting immigrants 2016" and find almost 100 including Mrs. Clinton's statement, and the FBI's statements on the status of such vetting. Current ban isn't "all" majority Muslim countries.
