There has been a lot of talk about the immigration ban, recently. A topic that we have been talking about here in the revolution staff. After talking for a bit, it became clear that the majority of us aren’t big fans of the immigration laws. For those who don’t know what the ban is for: Trump called out seven countries that would be declined immigration to America.
Those seven countries were: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, and Somalia; seven countries populated by a muslim majority. Because of this, many people believe that the point was to ban muslim people, specifically, from entering America. There are a bit of reasons why we believe that the immigrant ban is not a good idea.
One reason is that the countries that are bigger threats such as Pakistan, are not banned. Another is that countries that Trump has business in, such as Egypt, and Lebanon. The 9/11 attackers were from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates, yet none of these places were banned. This makes people think that this is all for business.
We do think that the problem could be worse. We think it is good that the time that these places are banned is only 90 days, when it could be more.
