The headline should read Trump Haters sow chaos at airports. Those
haters just keep moving the party from location to location, using any little
thing to decide where. Thank you for keeping us safe, President
Who cares about banning terrorists from coming into our country, we have our own
home grown liberal progressives who manufacturer lies, propagate fear, changes
the use of english language to create chaos, who is more rascist than those of
the past, who has tools better than the lynch mobs of the past called the
internet anti-social media, a more influentual gang ....of media outlets and
deep pocket globalists and entertainers to fund them, and to speak for them !They are just spreading their so called love for people? If this is
love, then they have definitely swapped the definition with hate. Add imported terriorist to this movement....and oh what a wonderful world,
such a peaceful world by their standards. Any proof to prove they are a
peaceful movement is welcomed because none is visable at present.
It seems rather obvious that the protesters were the problem causing the delays.
Not Trump's order per se. I thing the ESPN reporter got it right when
she said she and others had to walk two miles to board flights because of the
protesters. Now she is getting a lot of flak and being urged to
'recant' her statement. Leftists and the MSM ascribe the wrong cause
to the delays.
gus the comment was made that all were American born. Get the difference. They
were not all American born. Which is evidence the comment was wrong absolutely.
my_two_cents_worth - university place, WA - I am sure that Patriot also believes
that all the Tea-Party protest were funded by the Koch Brothers... right? That
they were not spontaneous exhibits of a public's frustration over policy
they didn't agree with.... there is no way that is a possibility. They had
to be paid.
Is Donald Trump's executive order on immigration a Muslim ban? This is not
a concern to Trump supporters because they want a Muslim ban and a Muslim
database. They don't care how it is phrased because they want action like
Trump promised regardless of the legality of the action.However, the
debate rages and many argue since the ban doesn't include all countries
with a Muslim majority population, it isn't a Muslim ban. Nonetheless, Rudy Giuliani mentioned in a Fox News interview that Trump said
that he wanted a Muslim ban but prepared in such a way that it could be sold to
the public as not a Muslim ban but a national security issue. Also, Trump want
to exclude Christians and members of other religious minorities which then makes
the executive order giving preference to one religious group over another. In
other words, a specific religious ban which is a violation of the Constitution
favoring one religion over another.It took a while because of the
rush to get the ban in place, we see people with full rights to come to the
United States because they hold green cards detained in violation of their
rights because they have a green card.

She entered the country as the wife of the other shooter. The younger of the two

point. If you are going to say that country of origin is indicative of becoming
a threat, the Tsarnaev brothers arrived in the United States in 2002 when the
oldest was 15 and the youngest was 8. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,
became a U.S. citizen in 2012. Both brother were essentially "raised" in
the U.S. The Boston bombings took place in 2013, 11 years after they came to
this country.Rizwan Farook was born in Chicago and was a citizen by
birth, his wife, Tashfeen Malik, was born in Pakistan and became a permanent
U.S. resident. She arrived in the U.S. in 2014 and married Farook the same year.
She entered the U.S. on a K-1 visa with the intention of getting married.Sure, some were born elsewhere, but did not come as terrorists. None
came as refugees.

don't think the chaos at the airport was caused by trumps ban."Do you think it was due to a luggage mix-up at the arrival carousel? If
you read the signs people are carrying, they tell you why they are there
protesting. Who do you think is coming into the United States by air?
They're certainly not protesting Trump's Wall on our southern border.
And where are the people arriving from the targeted Muslim countries being
detained? At the local Starbucks?Muslims carrying green cards which
are supposed to give them the same rights as American citizens. Students on
valid visas. Relatives of Muslim-American citizens. Muslim refugees who have
gone through an extensive vetting process for the past 2 years. These are the
people being detained illegally according to the acting U.S. Attorney General.
So give it a break.Do you know that the odds of being killed by a
Muslim entering this country on a visa is 1 in about 3.5 million? The odds of
being killed by a Muslim refugee is approximate 1 in 3.6 billion. You have a
greater chance of being harmed by a shark even though you live in Utah.

people from all over the political spectrum EXCEPT the wingnut Alt-Right crowd
who cheer him on. They want a Muslim ban and they want a database of Muslims who
reside in this country including those who are citizens. Let's get that
clear as one of your "correct somethings".Trump imposed a
ban on Muslims, initially targeting seven countries that have nothing to do with
attacks on the United States. It is his insidious way to get the crowds in a
froth. Now he has instituted a ban, and people don't like it.
Note the absence of the word "Delta" in this article. Despite that a
technical glitch caused hundreds of Delta flights to be cancelled over the
weekend, the authors have determined that it was the Trump travel ban that
caused chaos.I wonder when we will see a correction.
Trump has a lot to learn about governing. This isn't the same as some
business deal. What he does as president affects the entire world. As far as the illegal immigrant thing with South American countries, I can
understand wanting to keep criminals and drug traffickers out of this country,
but the vast majority of these people just want a better life for themselves and
their families, and should not be treated as criminals. What we have is what
dreams are made of in their native countries.The ban on Muslims is
outrageous and naive. We have to remember that these people are force fed
propaganda against the west (America especially), but they also have access to
the internet and other sources that show them how we live a much higher living
standard. We need to show them we are not their enemies. This ban does just
So please tell me again -- why were women and children from , Iraq banned by the
leftist President Obama? Could it be they were trying to escape

want to lie. Now we have anti-Trump protestors physically attacking people that
support Trump. We have Hollywood liberals calling for violent attacks against
those that voted for Trump. Notice the similarities of those supporting the
attacks, calling for the attacks, and making the attacks. Reminiscent of the
Brown shirt thugs of a fascist dictator. The immigration protests
are not about Muslims, as it only applies to about 13 percent of Muslims. The
protests are organized by groups that want to destroy the duly elected
government they oppose.
Let me correct something right off the bat -- President Trump didn't create
any chaos at any airport anywhere! The chaos is from from left wing protesters
with George Soros help of coarse. I came to work today and didn't hear a
peep from anyone about all this media generated hysteria. Working people
actually have jobs to go to but apparently the "professional protest
crowd" need some help finding a real job (protesting isn't a real job).
Perhaps a web site titled "Jobs For Protesters" would serve us all well.
Since the majority of these folks are being paid by George Soros they probably
wouldn't take a job if it were offered anyway. Just a thought....
I don't think the chaos at the airport was caused by trumps ban.It seems like it was caused by a bunch of people who want to cause problems
rather than try to understand the issues and help solve the problems we face.They instead are becoming part of the problem that the rest of us need
to solve.Let's secure our borders and have a better plan on how

that have gone abroad? How does banning entry of people from 7 countries that

The damage done by this is spreading world wide. Trump is causing the world to
retaliate against these ill thought out policies. His actions hurt businesses,
students, and families caught up in this boondoggle. Shows how
little thought Trump has before he does something universally called out as bad.
Thanks to the LDS Church for coming out on the side of people.
Others are calling Trump out on this including McCain and others of his own
party. The Pope has called Trump out on this.No amount of Kellyanne
Conway spin will change this rotten directive. Thousands are protesting this act
of treason against American values. Get angry America before this rotten apple
ruins what we have worked so hard to have. Several members of our
University of Utah community of students has been affected by this
"ban". Students are unable to come back into the country on their
student and green card visa's This is disgusting and despicable. And it is
being reported by honorable media as an outrage. The GOP is not behind him on
this, but their spin is happening with each evolving second. But he
will take the light off this debaucle with his Supreme Court nomination.
@mohokat - problem with your post is that no one, not a single person involved
in 9/11 came from any of the countries targeted. The one country where most of
the 9/11 terrorist were from, a country that Trump has business dealings with,
not on the list.This paranoid fear frenzy the "right" is on
is something to behold.
Meanwhile, in her Instagram post, Ivanka in a $5K dress and her husband have
been dancing the night away while their country's air ports are in chaos...
Ah, to be rich and in power. "Let them eat cake!" was what Marie
Antionette's supposedly said in similar circumstances...
A couple of years ago during some of Obamacare's dark moments a Democratic
staffer in the Senate: "We are so losing the anecdote war." The tables
are turned now.The White House should have thought about this. I
can understand restricting visas. But suddenly announcing that people who have
a visa can't come then that leaves a lot of people in limbo. Some one from
Iraq who was a US translator and who had received death threats got a visa, sold
his business, took his children out of school and got stuck in Doha, Qatar
because this was announced.Trump is giving the Dems ammunition, just
like they gave him a lot of ammunition with Hillary, Pelosi, etc. etc.
Chaos at airports? More chaos than happened on 9/11? The previous group that was
in charge would have announced a week ago what was about to take place. Then
anyone of the bad guys would have moved then to be this ban. This was a surprise
and it was on purpose. It sure beats another 9/11! I hope Pres. Trump does more.
I'm waiting for him to become so presidential that we're bored.
Waiting to win so much we ask for it to stop. Meantime, the resistance is
here to stay. It's not going away in a couple weeks, because things are
going to get worse, I'm afraid. Meantime, he's going to hurry
and drop a supreme court nominee on us to try to distract. I don't think
it's going to work.
At one time Mr. Obama stopped immigration from Iraq for 6 months. Not a word
was said by the media.
This whole thing is a Steve Bannon brain child, preparing us for mass roundups
of undesirables (in the Trump view - deplorables?). Some of us will be next.
This is nothing, give Trump another week or two and this will be forgotten.
Why the outrage? Can't you remember all the home grown terrorists who have
gone abroad, become radicalized and returned to commit terrible acts of terror?
Well, I certainly can.What President Trump has done is totally
rational, and remember it is only temporary, just until we can figure out how to
protect "we the people".
exactly what was promised during campaign. It is unfortunate that more clear
instructions did not filter down to customs and immigration inspectors who had
to get addittional questions answered. Press jumped the gun and /or did not
tell whole story- How many people were released after being questioned? Are they
being questioned respectfully? I can certainly remember being outraged at
overzealous TSA people.
For Donald Trump supporters, identifying his most recent executive order banning
travel from seven predominately Muslim Middle Eastern and North African nations
is what they have wanted from the day he came down the escalator in Trump Tower.
They don't care if it is a Muslim ban or "not" a Muslim ban. They
know the executive order, in keeping with his pledge during the campaign, is to
keep Muslims out of the country. This included Muslim green card holders
(supposedly protected like an American citizen by U.S. law), to students
studying in the United States, scientists wanting to come for meetings of do
work,and the children of Muslim residents already here who are now stranded in
their parent's home country. The child may be as American as any American
child, but he/she is Muslim and therefore excluded.These Trump
supporters don't care how Trump implements his controversial promises, they
just want it done regardless of constitutionality, legality, or extent of
ethical abuse. They want it and expect Trump to deliver, no excuses. Trump's saying his executive order is not a Muslim ban is only for those
who are not his supporters. It's all smoke.
After only 8 days in office, Donald Trump has become the most reviled president
in modern history. Protests fill the streets and they are not going away as long
as he keeps governing by proclamation and issuing 148-character tweets. Perhaps
his staff is able to shield him from the dissent that is engulfing the nation.
Not since LBJ and Richard Nixon have we seen such mass protests against a
president's policies as we see with the Muslim ban.Although
apologists insist Trump's policy isn't really a ban on a religion,
Trump has clarified that his travel ban only exempts Christians and other
"minority religious groups facing persecution." So instead of applying a
religious litmus test to who has to stay out, we have a religious litmus test
for who can come in. It's like saying, all Protestants except Mormons and
Jehovah's Witness. Exempting one religion while discriminating against
another is a ban on that religion, i.e. Muslim ban.Of course, those
Muslim nations doing business with the Trump Organization are not affected even
those some of these countries have provided ALL of the terrorists who have
attacked the United States.
Rudy Giuliani, the man who wanted to be Secretary of State, said that Donald
Trump wanted a Muslim and tasked a group for finding a "legal" way to do
it. Even though Trump and his advisors say the executive order is not a
"Muslim ban", according to Giuliani it is, just crafted to give the
appearance of not being that. Although the current ban does not
specifically target all Muslims, it actually does target Muslims coming from
countries which have never produced a terrorist to attack the United States.
Those Muslim countries which have produced terrorists in the 9/11 tragedy and
San Bernardino shooting (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and
Pakistan) are not subject to the ban.Why? Because Donald Trump has
business interests in those countries according to the Washington Post. Hotels
and golf courses, the Trump name is as prevalent in the Middle East as it is in
the United States. Trump gets tens of millions of dollars each year from
licensing agreements where only his name and his brand is his investment.According to Reince Priebus, customs officials have discretionary rights
to detain any Muslim entering the United States.
Donald Trump's Muslim ban is leading us to a Constitutional crisis. The
courts have weighed in and issued a stop order, but Trump continues as if the
Constitution doesn't apply to him and his edicts. It's not only the
Muslim ban, but other outrageous proclamations have displayed an arrogance of
power never seen since Richard Nixon.Republicans need to stand up
and assert their position as the majority in Congress and tell the president
that we are a democratic republic and not the authoritarian dictatorship that he
appears to favor. If Trump continues in his government by executive
order, we will see more demonstrations here and around the world. This is not
good for our country. The vision of the Founding Fathers is being destroyed
where America was founded on liberty and extending open arms to the
dispossessed, the threatened, and those yearning to be free.Extending the ban to all countries which have Muslim populations (per
Trump's insistence that a single religion is a threat to our democracy)
will not change the narrative that this is a ban against Muslims, a religious
test to discriminate against people escaping a life-and-death situation.
It's a complex issue with a simple minded person's solution. Things
are going to get worse.
