Unsatisfied Critics of Trump Immigration Order: This is ‘Muslim Ban 2.0’

President Donald Trump has issued a new travel ban that is a softer version of the previous one: Changes include limiting the ban to travelers without visas (green card and visa holders are now exempt), nixing Iraq from the list of targeted nations, removing exceptions for religious minorities, and no longer banning Syrian refugees indefinitely. The order will not happen immediately, but will go into effect on March 16 to allow for a more orderly implementation.

The revision has merit, but it’s not enough to stop Trump’s critics from continuing to call it a “Muslim Ban.”

    If it really was a Muslim ban the UK and Sweden would have made the list.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      …and the Islamic Socialist Republic of France and _____ and _____, etc. Interestingly, Iraq was dropped from the list. Interesting times, for sure.

    • And Germany.

        Don’t ya mean Merkelstan?

        And Canada.

    • Starlord

      Very true. Also the bullshit with CDN media, there are 300 to 500 people per day denied entry from Canada into the states before trump. Trump does the executive order and the MSM go and try to find the one or two brown people that got denied who in most cases would have been banned pre Trump… depending on the circumstances.

    Not one MSM comment about the fact that the countries targeted for the ban have their own ban on Jewish/Israeli entrants to their countries – this is continuously and conveniently ignored by the Left.

    Just what the heck is wrong with a muslim ban?

    1. Declare Islam and communism to be enemy ideologies.
    2. Declare adherents to these ideologies to be outlaws.
    3. Let the 2A do the rest.

    Ban majority muslim nations altogether. Since the open border extremists shriek at a tiny sensible restriction, the WH might as well go for the big islam quarantine.

    It’s not like the west needs ANY immigrants going forward, given automation. I’d choose to work next to a robot rather than a muzbot any day.


    • mobuyus

      Go easy with that liberal “going forward” pseudo-intellectual fluff, going forward.

  • FactsWillOut

    I suggest a moratorium on all immigration.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Yeah, let’s have the author of M-103 head up this moratorium and ask for input from the NDP and “Conservative” party while we’re at it. Would be a colossal waste of taxpayers’ dollars, no? *sigh*

  • Alain

    Now if only they were right, that would be what is needed. Sadly though it isn’t a Muslim ban.

  • WalterBannon

    To bad it was not a blanket ban on muslims

    Trump: Its Tuesday

    The Unhinged United: Its not Tuesday everywhere you idiot, have you never heard of the International Date Line?

    Trump: Well, its Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

    The UU: Tuesday is a White Supremacist Construct, made up of a name for a White Supremacist god, and -day, which is many -ists, including phobic against people who think they are vampires and aren’t up during the day

    Trump: I won
