Immigration and Trump Donald
Actually we have virtually not been vetting at all. I'm sure the first thought is that I'm either out of my mind or I don't know what I'm talking about. So, let me explain. Many of these people are coming from countries where the infrastructure has virtually broken down. Because of that, finding out who they are is very difficult. Next, they come from areas that are behind us technologically. There is no big database that has all their SSNs. Heck, in most of the countries I've been to in the Middle East they still use forms with carbon paper and keep everything in file cabinets. Now, add to that many people have aliases. They do that not to hide their identities but because it's part of their culture. When you add all of these together you'll see that vetting is extremely difficult. Now one might ask have the people coming here have been vetted? Well, I can tell you that State does better in some countries and not so good in others. Care to guess which countries we're the worst in?
Yes, this administration did a horrible job rolling this out. Yes, he never should have tweeted anything. There should have been a press conference and it should have been thoroughly explained. It wasn't. I do not love our current President… I don't even like him much. But this time he is correct. Is it a ban on Muslim people… not exactly. But it is a ban on people from predominantly Muslim countries because is where the threat is. Does that suck for the people that aren't a threat? Yes it does. But the Government's job is to keep us safe and if that includes hurting some people who aren't even citizens feelings then that is what it has to do. As I stated before, this is exactly the same thing we did when we targeted everyone from Germany, Italy, and Japan during WW II. I'm not talking about the citizens already here, we already discussed that. I'm talking about the total travel ban on immigration from those countries while we were at war.
