Much debate and criticism has gone on over President Donald Trump’s strong measures over immigration and refugees.
His first executive order that placed a halt on travel from terror-backed countries as well as refugees sparked protests and complaints from largely liberal and pro-Muslim political groups.
The media cast fuel on the fire, in order to make it seem like the entire country was against it.
Yet most Americans agree that strong measures are needed to prevent terrorists from reaching U.S. soil.
ISIS and other entities are expanding across the Middle East and are seeking in roads into the West.
We’ve seen the devastation they have brought to Europe, largely due to their open-door migrant policy.
This week President Trump signed a new order, that more effectively prevents unscrupulous judges from undermining his lawful authority in the matters of immigration.
The new order prevents the issuing of visas from six terrorist-connected countries, at the U.S. Embassies. It also places a ban on refugees with a yearly cap on the number of refugees who enter the country.
This, no doubt, will be met with more criticism and complaints from the left; yet they have already proven themselves to be unreliable when it comes to keeping our country safe.
Their weak vetting measures over the last eight years have left the country vulnerable, allowing actual threats to enter the United States.

From Fox News:
Federal lawmakers are investigating how a former Iraqi insurgent fighter was able to lie about his identity and still get through America’s ‘extreme’ vetting process…
“When [Joint Terrorism Task Force] and the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Western District of Texas sought to prosecute this refugee, the local law enforcement and prosecutors allegedly ‘met resistance’ from officials within the National Security Division’s Counter Terrorism section in Washington DC,” Committee chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in a March 6 letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions…
Fox News has learned the JTTF confirmed through U.S. Special Forces, who encountered the suspect during operations, that he claimed to have participated in attacks against American troops as an insurgent.
At some point, the Iraqi entered the U.S. through the refugee program.
This all kicked off one week before the election, so it was the policies of President Obama — and the weak vetting he put into place — that allowed an Iraqi insurgent to enter the U.S.
How was he able to subvert basic screening? Shouldn’t he have had adequate documentation to both prove his identity and his reasons for entering the United States?
Aren’t our custom agents and those running the refugee program capable of stopping fake documents?
Perhaps he didn’t have any documents. Perhaps our refugee program is so poorly managed, that they let anyone in, without the need to prove themselves.
Meanwhile American citizens need several forms of I.D. to rent a car or board an airplane.
This kind of incompetence is characteristic of the federal government under Obama. His lax stance on Muslims and Arabs kept the FBI and other agencies from properly vetting people, including refugees.
The shocking acts of terror in recent years falls on his shoulders, for not working hard enough to keep Americans safe.
Hopefully Sessions and the DOJ will get to the bottom of this case and make sure no more insurgents get into America.
