1.6 billion muslims in the world.... logistically it's just hilarious to think we can ban Muslims from our country. O yea, not to mention, it's morally awful. To think that a nation founded on rights to religious freedoms keeps out the second biggest religion in the world. I feel like this guy still thinks he is on a reality show.
Donald J. Trump statement on preventing Muslim immigration:
(New York, NY) December 7th, 2015, -- Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing "25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad" and 51% of those polled, "agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah." Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, "Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again." - Donald J. Trump More: donaldjtrump.com.
The rights are an important part of America; I don't know what we'd do without them. What happened to Freedom of Religion? I hate ISIS as much as the next guy, but not all Muslims are ISIS
rights do not extend to non U.S.
What a childish and grotesque idea of rights and ethics. Human rights are universal. The right to immigrate, to seek out labor, to travel, must be protected as sacrosanct.
Yes, but if an american president bans Muslims from entering the USA, that is the act of America toward whose allowed in America
The first amendment protects the freedom of religion, so I think it's not only stupid but also unconstitutional.
Most criminals are black does that mean we should ban blacks?
The answer is obviously no which is why I think it's also hypocritical.
Most criminals are not black. Blacks and Hispanics are disproportionately LIKELY to be black, owing entirely to a few key factors: urbanicity, poverty, and education. But the majority of criminals will still be white in the United States.
I'm not a constitutional expert, but I don't believe it would be unconstitutional. Trump's idea is directed towards people who are not U.S. residents. They are not affected by the constitution.
Of course, to me, if Trump's proposition does come to reality, it would violate moral laws, if not international ones.
Then again, Trump is addressing a topic that has long been a subject of taboo. People like that. There's an obvious compatibility issue between islam and western countries.
Nothing in the Constitution says that Congress can restrict the freedom of religion for outsiders. The First Amendment restricts Congress from stopping the free practice of a faith or establishing a religion. Both would seem to be clearly violated here.
European women cannot go outside without the fear of RAPE! They can no longer go to the public pools without themselves or their children being sexually attacked, in some cases children have been raped in the pool! These are not exaggerations, but facts. These are gang rapes in many instances.
The Cities in America where these refugees have been brought in are over run with TB, Hepatitis, Measles and other Diseases that they are not tested for!
We cannot allow this to happen in our Country. Trump has proposed setting these refugees up in their own land in very nice accommodations until the conflict in their areas are resolved! This will be a lot less expensive for the American Tax Payer and better for the refugees, who are mostly young men and they are leaving their wives, mothers and children in their homeland!
These refugees CANNOT BE VETTED, there is NO DATA BASE in which to draw information, therefore Trumps Idea makes perfect sense.
ISIS are moslems! Why would you NOT want to pause the invasion of possible terrorists to America? What SICK scheme is our government behind? Are you ready for you babies (they have sex with male and female children!) to be abused, mutilated, and then murdered?
Do you oppose the immigration of Christians because of the female genitalia mutilation in Eritrea and Ethiopia?
Short answer yes.
Trump's idea is idiotic, bigoted, impractical, and actually makes us more likely to be victims of terrorism. Trump and ISIS both want Islam and the West in conflict.
Of course - No. Beacuse Donald Trump's policy reminds me of Adolf Hitler..
It would be even better if he could get rid of the Jews as well.
Remember Carter banned Iranians in the 70's.
So because Carter did something bigoted, it justifies Trump doing something bigoted?
On the radio here they didn't say it was to be "temporary".
" Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."---I don't think our country's representatives have EVER figured out what's going on, in any sense of that phrase. Those Muslims are going to have a loooooong wait.
Seriously though, this idea is bigoted. Trump is fear-mongering.
