Media Distortions and Fake News on Trump’s Immigration Order

Craig HueyDonald Trump, International, Terrorism3 Comments

The media distorted the facts—again—along with social media, which created a hysteria of lies and distortions about Trump’s latest executive orders touching on immigration.

To compound the issue, there were travelers detained in between extreme vetting to make sure that Americans are safe.

Here are the lies:

  1. “It’s a Muslim ban.”No, it’s a ban on seven countries which former President Obama had placed on his terrorist list.

Here are the countries on which Trump has imposed a temporary travel ban:

  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Libya
  • Somalia
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Yemen

These are current hot beds for terrorism as well as the rising waves of refugees entering the country. These countries were listed on Obama’s VISA waiver program.

There are 46 Muslim countries in the world which are not on this list.

I think this list should be expanded, but these countries were the first to be covered.

Some of the countries which should be on this list:

  • Pakistan
  • Afghanistan
  • Saudi Arabia
  1. “The ban is unnecessary.”America is at risk for terrorist attacks. Anything that the President can do to keep America safe is critical in this age of terrorism. The first job of any President is to protect Americans.

We have seen what has happened in Europe and America.

The wife of the San Bernardino terrorist from the Islamic attack on December 2, 2015 was from Afghanistan. The terrorists who killed Americans in Minnesota were children of refugees. The Tsarnaev brothers who perpetrated the 2013 Boston bombing were from Chechnya.

  1. “Those who claim that only a small segment of Christians have been accepted are lying.”No!

See video below:

The media has not been mentioned that out of 12,000 Syrian refugees, without proper vetting according, only 60 have been Christians.

Christians are being discriminated against. They are about 10% of the population, but Pew Research is using this figure to document the number of refugees coming into the United States: 50% Muslim vs. 50% Christian.

This is a false figure. This is a figure that represented people all over the world coming to the United State, not people just from the violent/refugee areas of the Middle East.

  1. “It’s a religious test.”No, it’s a safety test.

We are not getting terrorist attacks from people in Sweden, China, or England. So there is no need for extreme vetting for immigrants from those countries, visit this website to get full information on this issue.

  1. “This is permanent or indefinite ban.”Trump has imposed a 90 day ban to ensure that our national security personnel and staffing can prepare extreme vetting.
  2. “This order is unconstitutional.”The President has every right to ensure the safety of American citizens and issue a ban on immigrants, refugees, and travelers from select countries.

Congress enacts laws regarding immigration (Article One, Section Eight).

The President has every right to carry out those laws. (See 8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens).

  1. “Donald Trump is the first President to ban people from entering this country.”

Completely untrue.

President Jimmy Carter banned travelers from Iran in 1979.

Barack Obama banned travelers from Iraq in 2011.

One week before he left office, Obama banned refugees from Cuba!

And of course, isn’t it interesting that the media refuses to call out the Muslim countries which have been Israelis from entering their country?

It’s a much longer list, too!

  • Syria
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Yemen
  • Libya
  • Algeria
  • Bangladesh
  • Brunei
  • Kuwait
  • Lebanon
  • Malaysia
  • Oman
  • Pakistan
  • Sudan
  • Saudi Arabia
  • The United Arab Emirates

The mass hysteria from the left, fomented on lies and distortions, is easy to undo once the truth comes to light. Trump’s temporary ban is a campaign promised fulfilled to Make America Safe Again.

And my advise to you: don’t afraid to use post office services when waiting for immigration documents, just made proper address registration.

  1. I am so glad Trump is doing this. What should we do as people to support this type of decisions? The left make too much noise and lies about things. People who believe in this type of decision should speak up and do some thing. It is that many of us do not know exactly what to do.

  2. WHY I COMMEND PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES

    I 100% agree with JOE CARTER, of “The Gospel Coalition’s defense of President Trump’s Executive Order regarding immigration” —as he explained—when President Donald Trump signed an executive order titled, “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The stated purpose of the executive order is to “protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.”

    Why was this executive order implemented?

    In almost all cases, a citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States must first obtain a U.S. visa. There are two main categories of U.S. visas—nonimmigrant visas, for travel to the United States on a temporary basis, and immigrant visas, for travel to live permanently in the United States (this type is sometimes referred to as a “green card”).

    This executive order notes that the “visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States.” It also adds that since the terror attacks on September 11, 2001, “NUMEROUS FOREIGN-BORN INDIVIDUALS” WHO WERE ADMITTED TO THE COUNTRY ON A VISA “HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OR IMPLICATED IN TERRORISM-RELATED CRIMES.” The intent of the executive order is thus to “prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes.” (1)

    I read NO contradiction in the Executive Order with the U.S. Constitutional authority that is plainly written out in Article III, Section 3 which states:

    “…he [the President] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”

    WHAT LAW IS THAT?

    Read the actual statute and make up your own mind if what Trump did was illegal.

    8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

    (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

    “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

  3. So how does that judge justify blocking President Trump’s executive order??? Is he a closet leftist??
