Seriously, you cannot be that ignorant, or can you? Terrorism by Muslims makes up .033% (One third of one percent) of all murders in the US....The total Muslim American population is 3.3 million. There were 54 fatalities caused by Muslims in 2016, 49 of these at the Pulse nightclub caused by Omar Mateen, an American born Muslim, not a refugee....

Between 2001 and 2015, more Americans were killed by homegrown right-wing extremists than by Islamist terrorists

So, for example, an Iraqi who earned U.K. Citizenship is also no longer allowed to enter the US. Effectively this one ridiculous order means that we're trying to redefine citizenship for our allies, as well. This is insane and wrong.
yeah, this is a really bad move. I have to wonder if it was intentional or not.

The problem with Trump is that nothing he does seems to be thought through. Everything is done just for the sake of doing it.

They could be talking about immigration visa not green card. Like I said, a green card holder has the same right to enter just like a citizen and it can't be taken away without the due process.
You may want to notify Trump about that.

Trump's reckless actions have consequences:

Iran vows reciprocal steps in retaliation for US visa ban

French President Francois Hollande vowed a "firm" response to a growing list of pronouncements by the maverick tycoon, including his encouragement for Brexit and suspension of all refugee arrivals. Another EU founder member, Luxembourg, also said Trump risks bolstering "hatred towards the West" by slapping tight new controls on travellers from seven Muslim countries including war-wracked Syria. https://www.yahoo.com/news/europe-mu...142646979.html

China military official says war with US under Donald Trump 'becoming practical reality'

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (Peru) and Juan Manuel Santos (Colombia) signed a declaration concerning situations in Chile and Mexico —the other two member countries of the Pacific Alliance. The document also reaffirms Peruvian and Colombian support to Mexico, which also agrees on the need to seek spaces for dialogue and negotiation to promote free trade.
Peru, Colombia leaders express sympathy with Mexico and Chile

No, it's not over reaction. This was a dangerous, terribly thought out decision condemned by the entire world. This is how this administration behaves. They're clueless and bigoted. This is not an isolated issue and we will continue to have these problems for years.

This country has already gone down hill in a week. I have no respect for what Trump voters and this administration have done to this country, and thus have no desire to live here.
