There are millions of Christians who need help. Bring them in first. As a woman I am apposed to inviting cultures that think women are not equal to me. We fought too hard for our rights and those of our daughter. May sound harsh but it is creating enormous anger amounts everyday people you are not meeting. This is a very explosive issue
Fact is, all terrorist attacks thus far have been from Muslims - not Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Taoists, Seventh Day Adventists, atheists, Satanists, etc. So, let's call a spade a spade and understand that radical jihadist Islamist Muslims have targeted everything and everyone not in accordance with it's stance on well, everything. Is it okay to be leery of such folk? I say, YES.
Let them enter the country but keep them contained. After all, they are asking for help. We can help and need not feel guilty if we restrict their movement and don't exactly provide 4 star hotel. I can see us being accused of something awful just because we need to maintain national security. That's not fair but it would happen, I'm sure. Do it anyway. It's the only human thing we can do and survive.
I'm torn on this one... It's crazy to actually consider banning a whole religion and it feels icky as well.... But the status quo needs to change as well... But I'm gonna say no... No ban but single men traveling back and forth should be watched more closely
No, not because of any religious preference; but ban persons with a criminal record and apply stringent screening processes to any people coming from a country with ties to known terrorist or anarchic organizations. Keep them outside the US until the screening has completed. have the Federal Government increase their capability to do such screenings outside the US significantly.
We should not ban them however, there should be a screening process for all immigrants, not just Muslims to decide if they are a threat to anyone, anything or national security. We should also increase back ground checks and screening and keep them in a designated safe area until they are cleared.
All together, immigration should be restricted. Visas should only be granted to those who have employment or a place to stay arranged in advance. The 1965 Immigration laws should be repealed. Now, as for any bans on specific groups, I say no to. Immigration should not allow discrimination over such things.
No, BEING MUSLIM DOES NOT MAKE SOMEONE A TERRORIST. There should be basic security when entering the country, just like for anybody from other places entering, but BEING MUSLIM SHOULD NOT BE USED AGAINST SOMEONE. IT'S THAT SIMPLE.
