LOL. I think it's "or something like that." Our constitution prevents discrimination based of faith. Lawyers and judges would be on that in a hot minute. Just because Trump signs a piece of paper doesn't mean it's legal.

As for another angle to this, it turns out that Christians are walking the talk:

Trump Refugee Ban Clashes With Faith-Based Groups' Religious Missions : NPR

The Christian response differs with that of OP and many posters to this thread.

Sad.

US Constitution does not apply to people outside the USA.

Exactly. I can't believe how many gay democrats want them here. They hate gays. All I can do is shake my head at how naive these people are.

And the so called women's rights march, yeah good luck with that.

True, but they would be on welfare the entire time they are here. Not just welfare, but we'd be providing them with everything, including homes or apartments with furnishings, in addition to everything else. All this while Americans lose their healthcare.

Of course I'm right about the US Constitution. There is no such thing as a "Christian Response".

Do people not realize that the refugees undergo a several month long, very intensive background check? These aren't the same people who are in Germany. Those people are economic migrants.

Which costs how much? And regardless, once admitted they are on welfare.
Why should working Americans be further burdened?

Hmm. Nope. Economic migrants are not allowed to stay in Germany.
