No, I think I understood it just fine. He posted a number of examples of gun massacres in the US. What he conveniently left out is that most of them were carried out by US citizens. Looks to me like the problem is growing in our own backyard, not with terrorized refugees.

Glad this is not the case.

And this is what scares the ever loving SH#T out of the liberal's.

Most these refugees support the murder and oppression of Christians.

That's like saying every Christian that doesn't support ALS or cancer isn't a Christian.

The funniest part about this is that the very people that speak up for this culture are more hated than the Christians by said culture.............LMAO

You can't make this **** up LMAO

Rights should be granted for American citizens. I don't see American citizens being banned from their own country.

Well he's only been in office a week or so. You're not giving him enough credit.

Your absolutely right we have more than enough of our own problems, We should work on solving those before we bring in hundreds of thousands of refugees.

As a vet's widow, I understand the sacred thing we call freedom and integrity of what we as a nation stand for above all nations in the world. When we go back on those principles, we have lost America. Many things men and women have died for are tittering on a dangerous cliff. I hope I am very wrong, and I know all of you will say I am, but - I might be right, then we are in deep trouble. We will never be the same again. I don't base my views on what people Say, news or media, but my deep belief on God's discernment of people's intent

Hate to break it to you but Trump isn't cancelling the refugee program, he's keeping it at about 50,000 a year which is similar to many Obama years. He's just going to try to alter it in subversive ways to keep out Muslims.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

The foundation of the United States is at risk. You are an immigrant unless you are Native American. We used to be know as the "free world". Trump has ruined that it the first days of his presidency. We are now an embarrassment.
