Quite. There's currently a large protest against the Muslim ban going on at JFK airport, so there is a resistance.

It's not a "Muslim ban," but a three-month delay before allowing people from seven Muslim nations to enter the US. Muslims from other Muslim nations, and Muslims elsewhere, aren't affected.

One can certainly argue whether or not the policy is justified, but the policy should at least be presented for what it is, and not made into something it's not.

Also, Obama imposed a six-month ban on Iraqi immigrants entering the US in 2011.

Interesting how no-one from any of those seven countries has been responsible for acts of terror in the US. Whereas the countries where the 9/11 terrorists came from are not included. And that Trump has property and the US has trade deals with those unaffected countries.

And let's be honest, far more Americans are killed by other Americans with guns than by Muslims from anywhere. Call it what you want, it's not a pretty policy.

Agree that it's a stupid policy that will won't have an impact in reducing terror attacks in the US. To be fair, though, the seven countries that Trump singled out had previously been designated as sources of terrorism by the Obama administration.
