This (below) is a comment (in response to Thursday’s post) that I received from a diehard Trump supporter, not the first to send a comment like this.
So let me be clear. I have been writing about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for ten years come this July. I was also a Trump supporter from day one. I even had an opportunity to tell him briefly what was wrong with the US Refugee Program in May of 2015.
But, someone has to be willing to NOT PULL PUNCHES and tell the public where he is going wrong on this subject which I happen to know a lot about. (Just a tad more than Ivanka knows!)
For the umpteenth time, Trump did not have to include the US RAP in an Executive Order that was stopped by the judges. It is a separate issue from the ‘travel ban.’
The Trump team has the legal power to stop the flow of refugees altogether IF THEY WANTED TO! (Now they have this handy excuse which Nancy has bought, hook, line and sinker—it is all about the judges!)
Using the liberal judges as as excuse, the Trump Administration is admitting an average number of refugees to the US at great expense to taxpayers and risking our security by including large numbers of unscreened Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, Rohingya and Somalis. Nevermind that he said many times while campaigning for office that he wouldn’t do that!
I don’t want to hear anything about all the bigger issues Trump is dealing with!
There is nothing bigger than changing the demographic, cultural and religious makeup of America. That is irreversible.
We can fix Obamacare and our tax system AFTER immigration is controlled!
The most benign explanation for what, at the moment, appears to be a flip-flop by the Trump team is that they haven’t hired anyone tough enough to rein-in the bureaucrats at the Department of State (which doesn’t look good for Trump, the great manager, either!).
That is not to say, they won’t get their act together eventually, but right now someone has to tell them they are screwing up!
Although I am not in her class, at least Ann Coulter is willing to tell Trump he is screwing up on immigration, in her case the wall with her new daily report on how many miles of the wall are being built each day—so far zero!
(See my report in the right hand sidebar of how many refugees Trump is admitting.)
Here is what Nancy and others (some more diplomatically) are telling me:
Shut up Ann, our man Trump can do no wrong!
While I enjoy your site, I do take exception to the Trump refugees article you posted. I think the same article should have been directed to the Ninth Circuit court, not Trump. It would appear to me that he has been trying …. and trying … to prevent this only to be thwarted again and again by a court that get’s literally 80% of it’s judgments overturned. Dare I say I’d get fired if only 20% of my work was accurate.
Also – the dig to Ivanka wasn’t fair either. Stop with the daddy comments – it’s classless and offensive. It should be beneath you to make such asinine comments. What she SAID was that it should be part of the discussion, not part of the solution. To me, a very diplomatic statement and perhaps way of getting a long-stalemated conversation going for real resolution. Perhaps you’re the dumb-dumb here.
My guidance is to stick to the issues and not the nonsense if you truly want resolution on this paramount matter. Thank you for listening
Thanks for listening Nancy!
One more thing, it is a wonderful thing to write a blog with no boss and for no financial gain to myself, because it doesn’t matter one bit to me whether I lose readers who don’t like what I say!
