Trump's 'Muslim Ban'

Leftists are flipping out over President Trump's executive order.

Hillary has come out of the woods to tweet about it.

Elizabeth Warren is calling the order a "Muslim ban."

The protesters are out in full force, of course.

James O'Keefe makes a good point.

Greg Gutfeld makes some good points, too.

Words have meaning.

A "Muslim ban" means Muslims are banned from entering our country. Agree with it or not, but this isn't a "Muslim ban."

It should be noted that "Trump's exclusion of aliens from specific countries is legal."

Andrew McCarthy writes:
On Friday, President Donald Trump issued an executive order calling for heightened vetting of certain foreign nationals seeking entry into the United States. The order temporarily suspends entry by the nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. It is to last for 90 days, while heightened vetting procedures are developed.

The order has predictably prompted intense protest from critics of immigration restrictions (most of whom are also critics of Trump). At the New York Times, the Cato Institute’s David J. Bier claims the temporary suspension is illegal because, in his view, it flouts the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. This contention is meritless, both constitutionally and as a matter of statutory law.
