There is no “natural right” for an immigrant to gain entry into any country.
First of all, who gives a damn what Huma Abedin (Hillary’s Muslim Brotherhood advisor) thinks about what Trump says? Kind of like seeking a statement from the KKK grand wizard about MLK’s stance on racism. Secondly, it’s exactly what Western states should be doing across the board, if not not for political correctness that has badly straightjacketed rational thinking and action, it would already have been implemented.
NOTE: Also, he only said a “suspension”, not a LIFE TIME BAN.
‘It goes against everything we stand for’: Trump’s call to ban Muslim immigration to the US is condemned across the political spectrum – from Dick Cheney to ‘proud Muslim’ Huma Abedin
- The Trump campaign sent a statement to reporters Monday urging the United States to shut down any sort of Muslim immigration
- Republicans and Democrats alike both smacked Trump for his statements
- Jeb Bush called Trump ‘unhinged,’ while Hillary Clinton said The Donald’s plan was ‘reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive’
- Huma Abende called herself a ‘proud Muslim’ but said ‘you don’t have to share my faith to share my disgust’ over Trump’s ‘Islamophobia’
- Dick Cheney also attacked Trump, saying; ‘I think this whole notion that we can just say no more Muslims, and just ban a whole religion goes against everything we stand for and believe in’
- Trump’s news release cited two polls – that the campaign said showed that Muslims hate Americans

Donald Trump’s call for ‘a total and complete shutdown’ of Muslim immigration into America during a speech on Monday was quickly met with disbelief and disgust by members of both political parties.
The Republican frontrunner said that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States in the wake of last week’s deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino where 14 people were killed by two suspected ISIS sympathizers.
‘I think that we should definitely disallow any Muslims from coming in. Any of them. The reason is simple: we can’t identify what their attitude is,’ said Trump.
Trump was condemned almost immediately by both Democrats and Republicans for even suggesting this idea, with everyone from Dick Cheney to Huma Abeden quick to publicly attack Trump.
‘I’m a proud Muslim — but you don’t have to share my faith to share my disgust;’ wrote Abeden in an email sent by Hillary for America.
‘Trump wants to literally write racism into our law books. His Islamophobia doesn’t reflect our nation’s values – it goes far enough to damage our country’s reputation and could even threaten our national security.’
Shockingly, Cheney’s statement on the matter almost exactly echoed that of Abeden as he said; ‘I think this whole notion that we can just say no more Muslims, and just ban a whole religion goes against everything we stand for and believe in.
‘Religious freedom has been a very important part of our history and where we came from. … It’s a mistaken notion.’
NOTE II: Therein lies the problem behind Cheney’s thinking, he actually considers Islam “just like any other belief system”, when in reality it’s not. Sam Harris:
“Most secular liberals think that all religions are the same, and they consider any suggestion to the contrary a sign of bigotry. Somehow, this article of faith survives daily disconfirmation. Our language is largely to blame for this. As I have pointed out on many occasions, “religion” is a term like “sports”: Some sports are peaceful but spectacularly dangerous (“free solo” rock climbing, street luge); some are safer but synonymous with violence (boxing, mixed martial arts); and some entail no more risk of serious injury than standing in the shower (bowling, badminton). To speak of “sports” as a generic activity makes it impossible to discuss what athletes actually do, or the physical attributes required to do it. What do all sports have in common, apart from breathing? Not much. The term “religion” is scarcely more useful.”
