The idea of the temporary travel ban from seven countries is to prevent terrorists from entering the US while an evaluation is made as to our ability to screen potential visitors for terrorist connections. It’s just that simple. It makes excellent sense. However, it originated with President Trump, hence the left must oppose it for that reason alone.
The idea that anyone’s rights are being denied because someone has to wait an extra three or four months to gain entry to the United States is nuts. For one thing, foreign nationals do not have any right to enter this country, they only have the privilege to do so, and only when the US government chooses to extend that privilege. And to defend the ban from another perspective, we’ll quote from that great light of the left, Mrs. Clinton: “What difference does [an extra couple of months waiting] make?”
All the reason and sense in the world are not going to change the left’s beliefs on this matter. This is a mindless effort to block something, anything, that President Trump tries to do. Even if there is evidence from government employees demonstrating that our current method of vetting immigrants is poor. And just such evidence has emerged.
This comes from Mary Doetsch, “who served almost eight years as a refugee coordinator throughout the Middle East, Africa and Cuba, [and who] described the the country’s refugee resettlement program as rife with ‘fraud’ and ‘abuses’ that only got worse during former President Barack Obama’s eight years in office.”
She offers a number of other very unsettling observations, such as these: “‘Despite claims of enhanced vetting, the reality is that it is virtually impossible to vet an individual who has no type of an official record, particularly in countries compromised by terrorism,’ she wrote. ‘U.S. immigration officials simply rely on the person’s often rehearsed and fabricated “testimony.” I have personally seen this on hundreds of occasions.’”
Hence, if anything, Mrs. Doetsch does not believe President Trump’s ban goes far enough.
Here we have clear evidence from someone who has actually been there – who has years of experience working under the current system. She’s says it does not work and that terrorists can pretty much enter as they please.
Would it be too much to ask that one or more committees of Congress hold hearings and call this woman as a witness? The mainstream media might try to ignore it, but you can count on other news outlets to see that her testimony would get massive exposure. It could be that lives in this nation depend on it.
