America just won, people! This win may be suppressed by the bad media, but it’s still a win. President Trump has just put ban on the borders, or in other words, from now on, it won’t be so easy for everybody to visit the U.S. Trump has just announced the names of the 6 countries whose citizens won’t be able to come to America anymore.
The ban wasn’t welcomed well by the Liberals and the Muslim population in America. There aren’t many Muslims in the U.S. and now it seems like this number will continue to decrease. I guess that everyone opened their eyes and saw that the people who are threatening us are not good to live along with.
The only state that has a big problem with this ban is Minnesota because of the many Muslims that are living there. They’re giving their opinion on this news and it’s not positive.
The possibility to make the already mad people even more mad is quite big. Although many are scared for their safety, they’re afraid to admit it, mostly because this issue is religiously sensitive.
Shortly after the ban was published, the criticism and accusations started pouring through the medias. Fox 9 reported the feeling that the citizens of Minnesota expressed:
“Hamline University student Khalid Mohamed has about a dozen family members who were hoping to move to Minnesota from refugee camps in Kenya, but those plans have been put on hold indefinitely because of a new ruling by the nation’s highest court.
Those families after they’ve gone through that process and now being told, ‘You are not going to be able to come in,” Mohamed said. ‘It’s going to devastate them for a long time.’
The U.S. Supreme Court says the Trump administration can fully enforce a travel ban on people from six majority Muslim countries while legal challenges make their way through the courts.
Lower courts had ruled travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somali, Syria, and Yemen, who claimed they had bona fide connections to the U.S. like grandparents or in-laws, could be allowed into the country, but this ruling closes that loophole.”
The ruling might seem drastic but better safe than sorry. We must protect ourselves from forged paperwork from rotting countries. To be honest, it’s very easy to buy off a forged papers nowadays. There were times when we verified the papers handled to us, but now even that is not a solution.
“‘My first reactions are heartbreak,’ State Rep. Ilhan Omar, DFL-Minneapolis, said. ‘I’m really disappointed. I don’t think any of us were expecting it.’
Rep. Omar says if the current ban were in place years ago, she wouldn’t have been able to come to this country, where she became the first Somali-American Muslim lawmaker elected to public office in the U.S. She says the ban could affect hundreds of Somalis in Minnesota hoping to be reunited with their long-lost loved ones.
‘You have hope then you feel the rug is pulled from under you,’ Rep. Omar said.
Mohamed believes his cousins, aunts, and uncles will eventually be able to join him here in the Twin Cities, but he’s not holding his breath.
‘I know things will get even worse,’ Mohamed said. ‘I do know I do believe things will get better, but not anytime soon.’
Two challenges to the ban will be heard later this week before the U.S. Court of Appeals in both Richmond, Virginia, and Seattle.
After those rulings, the losing sides will likely try to get a final verdict from the Supreme Court before the end of its term in June.”
Separating our responsibility from the one that the government has is one of the biggest problems that we are currently facing. For example, we are not allowed to kill people, while the government can send soldiers to war to kill and be killed.
We can relate this example to the ban- we can shelter the ones who needs help, but the government should provide that to their own people who are currently put at risk.
The leaders to the states that we choose should understand the President’s choice, but they are quite blind. For instance, The Minnesota mayor Val Johnson was furious when the ones that she accused of having privileges are the ones who are actually seeing the real image of the world.
In today’s world, the most important thing is to be awake, but to be awake, we should be alive, don’t you think? The government should do everything in its power to protect us and our country. We shouldn’t allow the Muslims to take our peace away from us.
What are you comments on this problem? Do you agree with the ban?
