A. Trump is not against immigrants coming to America, but IMO, he is representing those who live in fear of physical death at the hands of evil men and who don’t want to sacrifice their wealth and comfortable life, so that others can simply live.
B. Obama lived with the same fear, but not quite as much.
C. Both were involved in deportations and both limited the annual number of immigrants that could come into the country.
D. All other presidents in recent history have done the same. Some do more, and some do less, but none follow the example of Jesus. None open their arms wide open like the Statue of Liberty originally represented. Schumers statement that, "Tears are running down the cheeks of the Statue of Liberty tonight as a grand tradition of America... has been stomped upon" simply makes folks feel good. It doesn't address how many people have not been able to come to America over the last century because folks like Schumer voted to establish a numerical limit.
E. I think Trump’s biggest failure over the weekend was not respecting and caring enough about his team and issuing orders that created a lot of headaches, scheduling problems, chaos, and sleepless nights for thousands of people… and didn’t even feel bad about it.
A Politico writer describes it this way.
“The developments underscore the haphazard approach the Trump administration has taken toward using its political power. Trump issued the order Friday with little notice to or input from the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department or other agencies critical to implementing it, according to multiple sources. The order's complexity left administration lawyers scrambling to interpret it as advocacy groups filed lawsuits. Trump did not appear moved by the chaos.”
“…as a sheer matter of governance, it augurs poorly. Other administrations might have carefully briefed reporters on the details of the new policy, prepared the public, put exemptions in place, clarified exactly who would be affected. They might have crafted an outreach strategy to key allies to explain the president’s reasoning and hear out any concerns. The Trump team seems to have done none of that.”
RE: Poll #2 (signs like, “Jesus loves refugees" or "Jesus was a Mid-Eastern refugee” that could have been done before Trump ever began running for President and had fewer political implications)
RE: Poll #3 (this includes mothers with young children who need to spend the night in an airport with worried and grouchy children and family members who are wondering if and when they will see their loved ones again.)
