All you snowflake Trump protesters. Where were you in 2011 when Barack Insane Obama banned all Iraqi refugees for a period of six months, including one who was in danger because he had aided Obama’s military? He was assassinated before the ban was over.
And guess what? Obama wasn’t even honest enough to tell the American people what he was doing. It wasn’t revealed until 2013, when ABC broke the news of the program. At least Trump told you to your faces, although we know immigration isn’t the reason for the protests. It’s because the democrats didn’t win. You are fooling no one.
ABC News reported on the six month refugee freeze (emphasis added):
As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets.
Trump’s executive order halts visas for 90 days for “immigrants and non-immigrants” from Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Iran, and Iraq. The executive order further suspended the entry of all refugees for 120 days, indefinitely blocks Syrian refugees from entering and lowers the ceiling to 50,000 for refugees allowed to enter the U.S. during Fiscal Year 2017.
In response to the order, protests have taken place outside major U.S. airports while immigration lawyers from groups financed by billionaire George Soros, a champion of open border policies, were signatories to a lawsuit filed Saturday to block the order.
The DHS has said they will enforce the ban no matter what the activist judges say.
