As most of you are already aware of, President Donald Trump pushed through an executive order that has halted the refugee acceptance for four months. Not only that, but the order also stopped Muslims from coming into the nation from seven countries that essentially hate the United States.
While this order was meant to help strengthen the refugee vetting process, considering that it has had problems in the past, the liberals and Democrats were outraged. As liberals tend to do nowadays, they were marching in the streets, protesting, and essentially complaining about something that was meant to help the country.
How surprising. The liberals are protesting something that is meant to help the country. They spent all weekend sitting at airports and voicing their displeasure at the order that Trump has made. Now, Senate Democrats have come up with a new strategy to stop Trump.
They are going to introduce two new bills today that are a direct response to Trump’s executive action on immigration and refugees. One of the Democrats behind this is Senator Dianne Feinstein, from California (shock!), and she had tweeted about the bills she was going to introduce on Sunday.
“The first bill immediately rescinds the order. The second limits executive authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act,” she wrote. She wasn’t alone, as other Democrats have come together to propose bills that would stop Trump’s orders.
Senators Chris Murphy out of Connecticut, and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have also said that they are going to do what they can to overturn it. A lot of this comes after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had called for a lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqi refugees that were detained.
The ACLU has since raised over $24 million that is going to be used to fight for immigrant rights, as part of their seven-step plan to counter the Trump administration. Considering that Democrats look towards these groups for action, it’s not surprising that they are now coming up with bills to combat Trump’s order.
Senator Murphy also announced on Twitter that he would introduce a bill to overturn what he called a “dangerous, hateful order.” He also told MSNBC that Trump’s ban would encourage terrorist recruitment. “This, ultimately, is going to get Americans killed. I believe it.”
Murphy also discussed the ban on Syrian refugees, saying that officials generally have “a long-standing belief that we should rescue people from a fire even if we can’t agree on how to put it out.” Using that logic, how would it look if the United States rescues the people that started the fire in the first place?
Then you are just putting American people in danger because you had to help everyone else rather than help the American people. Senator Schumer was the same way, going on the TODAY show and saying that he would call for a vote to overturn the orders by late Monday on the Senate floor.
“This is a blanket ban. It hurts innocent people and doesn’t stop terrorism. It’s just appalling.” Okay Senator Schumer, explain to me how stopping the vetting process isn’t going to stop terrorism from happening?
Former President Obama’s State Department even admitted that ISIS agents were among the refugees that were admitted into the country. Don’t you think that it would be a wise decision to FIX the problem rather than hope it doesn’t happen again?
The biggest worry about this is the fact that there are some Republicans who have criticized Trump’s executive order, meaning that Feinstein’s bills have some support. Senator Schumer has said that the Democrats might be able to pass legislation overturning the orders if enough Republicans were on board.
Not to mention that if this order DOES get overturned, then what is to say the other bill that Feinstein was processing won’t get pushed through either? Her second bill would restrict how much power Trump has through executive action on immigration.
Considering that Trump, as well as other Americans, view immigration as one of the biggest concerns and threats to the United States, this is indeed extremely worrisome. For some reason, Democrats have this way of thinking that we should have open borders and just invite everyone over to our country.
That was very clear with former President Obama. A report came out that said Obama’s immigration team was only deporting one percent of all the illegals that are entering the United States. That isn’t a big number and it only hurt the rest of the country. If we don’t properly look at people that are coming into the country, then how can we protect ourselves?
Not to mention that the immigration control force that was under control of Obama was caught taking bribes from illegal immigrants. The bribes were done to make sure that the immigration force at the border would continue to allow illegal activity that was occurring. Thanks Obama, for putting a force in control of the border that was easily susceptible to bribes.
Share this article to show everyone that Democrats are now doing what they can to overturn Trump’s executive orders. They are spring boarding off of the ACLU raising money to fight for immigrant’s rights. Not only that, but they are going to do so via legislation. Liberals are really doing what they can to hurt this country and it’s pathetic that they don’t see it.
