Concerning Trump’s “Muslim Ban” 

President Trump talks while holding executive order on immigration

There is a little known law that those who oppose Trump’s executive action have forgotten about. It’s 8 U.S. Code § 1182 which talks about Inadmissible aliens and states in part:

Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president. Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

So it seems that if the courts properly apply this law, the President’s order will be upheld. Some parts could be struck down concerning green card holders, but the rest will be upheld.

I’d like to point out that Obama used this same law to stop processing requests from Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011. Jimmy Carter canceled visas and banned immigrants from Iran during the hostage crisis in 1980.


You Don’t Understand the Problem

If you fear Donald Trump, there’s a larger problem here

Republicans: If you think things are going to magically get better now, you don’t understand the problem.

Democrats: If you’re afraid of Donald Trump, you don’t understand the problem.

The problem is an expanding federal government and an executive branch that seized too much power over the last 8 years.

Three Dead, Seven Injured in Louisiana Theater Shooting

The attack came on the same day a jury provisionally approved the death penalty for another theater shooter.

It’s probably a safe bet to say that this is another shooting that occurred in a “gun free zone.”
