President Obama has once again taken the side of foreigners over American citizens, this time in a speech that he gave recently which was designed to insult presidential candidate Donald Trump. In the wake of the Paris massacre by Muslim extremists and the murder of 14 people in San Bernardino by an Islamic husband and wife, many citizens are calling for a pause in the wave of immigrants being invited into the U.S. by Obama under a special refugee program.
Trump also has taken a position that is decidedly not politically correct and has called for a moratorium on allowing Muslims into the United States until the immigration department can tighten up the process to ensure that Islamic terror cell members are not sneaking in under the guise of being fleeing Syrian refugees.
Immigration officials have admitted that their vetting process is porous, and recent evidence shows that the San Bernardino woman who killed so many people was a radicalized Muslim well before she came to the U.S., but entered the country with little or no slow-down from immigration services.
The proposal by Trump is quite reasonable in that it is temporary and it is supported by the vast majority of Americans. But Obama, rather than recognizing the legitimate fears of U.S. citizens, chose to denounce Trump, and by extension, the public, calling them bigots, and citing freedom of religion as a superior value, though it is important to recognize that the right of freedom of religion only applies to U.S. citizens, not to foreign immigrants.
There are laws which do indicate that religion should not be a test for immigration, but the real point is that Trump is saying that the U.S. has a dangerous problem, and that it must be addressed before another tragedy occurs. That may simply be the halting of immigration from the Middle East, which would be legal, but that is up to Obama, and he seems determined to ignore the will of the people.
