We have to start all over again....and that is what is happening....if people cannot understand it's for their own safety then too bad...things are changing, you cannot allow people from all over the world to constantly enter this country...without keeping an eye on them.

They knew this was going to happen, did they think Trump was lying?

In FACT, it is. It's not a permanent ban. Period.

Enough with Trump. Resist! He will not Divide us.
Nope people like YOU are being divisive.

Read between the lines and start thinking for yourself. Stop reacting on your emotions and see reality the way it is.

I'm going to say this over and over again...

This is what happens when you don't say NO to people, especially your kids....
This is what happens when you allow everyone and anyone in this country.

This is temporary until they find a way to handle this mess, and it is a mess....

You cannot open your borders to everyone and anyone, period.

If we continue to do this, we are asking for trouble.....

the corporations are against this, b/c this freezes them hiring foreign workers.....

I find it amusing that the country that claims to be the strongest and most powerful country in the world is STILL using the old safety and security excuse to exclude Muslims and make our citizens undergo ridiculous security measures at airports.

If we really are so big and strong, why are we still acting like frightened little kids jumping at every shadow and hiding in the corner? It's pathetic. And Donald Trump is taking advantage of our fears by promising to protect us from unknown enemies via racism

well, we are 16th in education, so what does that tell you. We were at one time the strongest and most powerful nation in the world, but no more...no more...and this is all the reason why, and why Trump says, make America great again....

This show was taken off the air, however, if you watch this, you'll see why...

No that isn't all that can be done. One can learn from their mistakes and those who do not support Trump are not doing that.

For heaven's sake, it's incredibly difficult for someone to immigrate to this country. We do not now, nor have we ever within my lifetime, let 'everyone and anyone' in. That is a ridiculously untrue statement.

And the problem isn't simply that our country wants to let fewer immigrants in. If that were the case we'd have a point for discussion and could move on from there. It's that this change is blatantly discriminatory, reneges on promises we've made to people who have followed all of the rules for coming here legally, throws the lives of those people needlessly into chaos, and causes the entire world to question our word.

He might want to rethink the guns laws in this country in that case.
