Huge Win for Trump’s Terrorist Travel Ban

A U.S. appeals court in California on Monday let President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban go partially into effect, ruling the government can bar entry of people from six Muslim-majority countries with no connections to the United States.

A three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals partially granted a Trump administration request to block at least temporarily a judge’s ruling that had put the new ban on hold. Trump’s ban was announced on Sept. 24 and replaced two previous versions that had been impeded by federal courts.

The action means the ban will apply to people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad who do not have connections to the United States.

Those connections are defined as family relationships and “formal, documented” relationships with U.S.-based entities such as universities and resettlement agencies. Those with family relationships that would allow entry include grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins of people in the United States.

It’s a start!


I think a fair formula would be to let 1 applicant in for every 7,600,000,000 applications received.


The so-called ban (has exceptions) is required because it is not possible to properly screen large numbers of people who want to enter the country. Immigration has to be slow and controlled, not allowed in large numbers just because leftists want to change the country’s demographics away from Christian-based culture to something more of a mess. Islam in its fundamental form is not compatible with United States culture, we have to be wary of allowing unfettered immigration.

Not all. Provided extreme vetting measures are applied AND THE RESULTS VERIFIED there is NO reason to ban ALL individuals from ALL eastern countries. — To be sure I would apply extreme vetting measures to the WHOLE family (including extended family) before allowing any individual in to the USA. Most times there is at least one good apple in a box. In my view a blanket ban on ALL middle eastern COUNTRIES takes things a little too far.

We need to BAN ALL middle eastern countries!!!
