U.S Travel Ban:Nigeria and Other Nations
Beyond those people who may now never make it across American borders, the new ban could also affect millions who have no plans to travel to the United States themselves but may have benefited from the billions of dollars in remittances visa holders send home each year.
Neither of these quotes has anything to do with immigration, but is used to perpetuate fear by associating immigrants with criminality and threats to the nation’s well-being. I would love to ask Barbara to discuss these thoughts with her Muslim friends, but I am assuming she likely does not have any. Barbara is challenged in a comment on her post by Ronda Haavind testifying, “Our Constitution covers anyone on our Shores, citizen or immigrant,” but Barbara replies, “the forefathers are ‘rolling in their grave’ at what our government had done & become”. Another fear largely posted in social media is the idea that if we let Muslim immigrants into the US, we will be affected by Sharia law.
With the January 27 block and the March 6 court restriction has shuttered the government effort in enacting the policy. It raises a wide range of constitutional problems that cannot allow the government to act on her decision (Roberts 1). This ban on Muslim spark from the Trump presidential campaign where he promised to put a halt to Muslim immigration to the United States the first day he takes office. As he stated in his campaigns, Trump promised to a “complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”(Davidson 1). Although the federal court order in the United States on the immigration is a quite serious thing, it is not evidenced that there is good will to support it or even revoke the trumping rule. In other words, although it represents the principle and laws, if the American culture does no support it doomed to collapse (Davidson 1).
(Mr. Trump, demanding to know why immigration policies did not favor people from countries like Norway, once disparaged those from Africa and Haiti, and said Nigerians would never go back to their “huts” if they were allowed in.)
