(CNN)On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that effectively freezes the entrance of Syrian refugees to the United States forever. As he signed the order, President Trump said this was “to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States.”
Absolutely nothing will be achieved by this order because there isn’t any signs of terrorists on the list of Syrian refugees that are settling in the United States.
All the deadly actions of jihadist terrorism in the States since 9/11 have been carried out by American citizens or lawful residents, and none of them have been the work of Syrian refugees.
That will not be overly surprising, because the United States has tolerated just a minuscule amount of Syrian refugees, even though the Syrian civil war is one of the worst humanitarian crises since World War II and has created a vast outflow of almost 5 million refugees from Syria.
The United States has considered just around 15,000 Syrian refugees, amounting to a miniature 0.2% of the total amount of refugees, the substantial bulk of whom are girls and kids.
Donald Trump’s own mom Mary escaped the bone-crushing poverty of Scotland’s distant Outer Hebrides for the guarantee of New York in 1929.
America hasn’t traditionally become the crowded, fearful state of Trump’s executive order that prohibits Syrian refugees.
Next, will the Lazarus poem that adorns the Statue of Liberty be rewritten by the Trump management?
“Give me your Pilates-toned, your billionaires, your Botoxed elites yearning for admission to MaraLago.”
