Two major details have emerged of President Trump’s refugee ban, which are worth addressing.
1: President Obama’s administration issued a similar ban in 2011 for Iraq, after it was discovered that terrorists had infiltrated the flow of refugees. And were there any mass protests or a cacophony of mass outrage?
2: There have been some reports of legal citizens of the United States among others, being detained and unable to gain access into the country. Of course, this is unfortunate, but given the ban remains in its infant stages, these issues should be quickly resolved. Furthermore, the Secretary of State maintains a capacity to “on a case-by-case basis, and when in the national interest, issue visas or other immigration benefits to nationals of countries for which visas and benefits are otherwise blocked”, so the ban is not blanket and unshakable on all migrants coming from Iraq, Syria, Libya, etc.
