President Trump’s travel ban is a very strategic move by his administration towards taking larger steps in the prevention of terrorism in the United States. Although, I have some doubts about the rationale behind the ban. While the travel ban is said to not target Muslims, the
Immigration has become an issue all around the world. Everyone have different opinions on how immigrants affect our society. Is immigration good for the economy, the employment rate for immigrants and their pay, how the ban could have a major impact on the U.S., why do people migrate, and DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals). This essay will hopefully answer any question about immigration and we should handle the ban.
The travel ban restricts the travel of people from eight different nations which included six that are largely Muslim nations. There are different restrictions for each nation, however most include the restriction of immigration to America permanently; some of the nations are not even allowed to visit the country. While it is understood that precautions are being taken to protect our country, we cannot accuse a person of partaking in harmful events and beliefs just because of their
12 billion dollars, that is certainly a lot of money (McFadyen)! On average, that is how much the United States loses each year from border security. In order to stop illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from entering the U.S. from Mexico through the border, a wall must be built.
Did you know there are 8,194,000 children in the United States with at least one immigrant parent? 8,194,000 children whose families are being threatened by the Trump administration's recent changes in immigration policies. Immigration reform has been a topic of controversy for decades. Most Americans blame Mexican immigrants for the United States economic problems and many believe undocumented immigration causes high crime rates. However recent studies have disproved that undocumented immigrants are a threat to American citizens. When people think of immigrants they think of an outdated caricature that doesn't truly represent all of the 11 million undocumented immigrants.
However, President Trump’s “travel ban” is discriminatory and unconstitutional. As a candidate for presidency, Trump called for a "ban on Muslims." And when the executive order was signed, there was a focus not just on terrorists, but "Islamic"
Donald Trump tried to put in place a travel ban but it is not very effective. The travel ban is only for six countries. Those countries are Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, and Somalia. The travel ban is applied to them because they are considered the major Muslim majority. That is not very effective because Muslims and terrorist do not only live in those 6 countries.
On January 2017 the new president of the United States Donald Trump signed the order to ban immigrants, travelers, and even green card holders who were born in one of the following seven Middle Eastern countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, specifically Muslims and Syrians. According to what President Trump was saying, this order is made for the safety of the country, and to limit what is called the “Foreign Terrorism” inside the United States. People who agree with this law believe that banning believers of a specific faith and refugees entering the United State will make them safer. The law states that these seven countries’ citizens are not allowed to enter the United States for 90 days, starting from the day
The President’s Travel ban has been criticized even before inception for how well it actually protects national security interests and civil liberties. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may…suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate1. President Trump and his advisors have said time and again that the countries listed on the travel ban, which include, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, were identified by the previous administration
President Donald Trump’s current immigration ban and coming legal actions to be taken on immigration began on January 27th, 2017, when he implemented a ban on aliens from the countries of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, to help secure the people’s lives and help prevent any possible terrorist threats or attacks to the nation. It bans all refugees for 120 days and bans all Syrian refugees indefinitely. The false accusation that many people believe is that this is banning all people from entering the United States. It still allows green card holders, special immigrants that work for the military, and dual nationals and diplomats to travel back and forth between the restricted countries. Many American’s don’t see that providing
Starting seven days after President Trump moved into office he signed an order to keep terrorism out of our country. When he signed the order he picked seven countries which were Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Lebanon to be kept out of America. Many people were protesting against this so President Trump decided to take Iraq off. The citizens of these countries were to be kept out of the United States, but there were still some exceptions to this law. Based off of many different things like religion, many people end up having different opinions about the Travel Ban. Some people think President Trump made a good decision while others think he is not being American because most Americans are immigrants from the countries he banned.
President Trump signed an executive order (1379) to keep refugees from entering the country for 120 days and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations out for three months. The countries affected are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia. This ban is commonly known as the travel ban or the Muslim ban mainly because all the 7 countries’ major religion is Islam.
Terrorism has been a major problem for all people in the 21st century, with so much fear in our lives there have been regulations and rules set by the government to protect its citizens. The US has tried many different ways to prevent terrorism, but perhaps the most controversial are the travel bans. In the last year there have been several executive orders signed by the president banning travel into the United States from specific countries. Many of the previous presidents have placed travel bans for the protection of the country but there have been more objections to the ones of 2017 than ever before. Travel bans have been placed for multiple reasons, but for the most part, all are said to share the goal of protecting the American people. Travel bans disrupt the lives of people all over the world, and in the last year they have caused major upset due to the ban on Muslim majority countries, but even with all the controversy, some people believe that these bans are the best way to combat terrorism.
Many people contemplate if the travel ban helps or if it makes stuff worse. The travel ban is an order that was signed by president Trump to forbid some countries to come to the United States. Many people see the travel ban as something good for the United States because there is less fear about surprise attacks. Many other people do not think it helps the United States, that it makes it worse because not everyone is the same as their family or race and the United States is not respecting it is rights. The travel ban is not helpful for national security, it is racist, and it is unconstitutional.
Be it resolved that the United States fully repeals the travel ban due to the discriminatory effects it has on some people. The travel ban is a terrible executive order that was put into place by President Trump on january 27th of 2017. The travel ban was put into place to protect the United States by not allowing any citizen from seven muslim countries to enter. These seven countries are; Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. These countries were targeted due to supposed risks of these countries harboring extremists groups such as Isis or Al-qaeda. According to the article “Trump's executive order: Who does travel ban affect?,” by BBC News, “ The travel ban suspensions the US refugee program for 120 days, places and indefinite ban on Syrian refugees and suspends all visas of incoming immigrants of the seven banned countries” (BBC News). The seven countries are heavily muslim, however most of the people in these countries are no threat to the United States in any way. Why is the United States completely discriminating the islamic religion when we are founded on the basis of religious freedom. Not everyone who is muslim is a terrorists so why are we punishing a lot of good people for the actions of very few. Most of the terrorist attacks that have happened since 9/11 have been carried out by a U.S citizen, so are we going to start deporting all muslim U.S citizens? The islamic religion is not the problem it's the radicalistic idea that some people
