Liberals are determined to undermine President Trump’s executive order aimed at keeping radical Islamic terrorists out of America.
Last week, a Seattle judge blocked Trump’s executive order, and yesterday a liberal San Francisco court further put American lives at risk by refusing to reinstate Trump’s travel order which suspends the issuance of visas for 90 days from seven countries that are known to be hostile to the U.S.
Trump sharply criticized these rulings and vowed to fight back.
But even worse, this federal agency was caught red-handed taking advantage of the temporary halt and admitted 1,100 refugees to the U.S., with over 75 percent of them hailing from the seven suspended countries outlined in Trump’s executive order.
“Since the Feb. 3 ruling, 1,100 refugees have entered the United States, with 77 percent arriving from the seven terror-prone countries outlined on Trump’s executive order.
In a statement to The Washington Times, the State Department said the increase in numbers was a result of “rescheduling those whose travel had been suspended the previous week.”
The countries, which include Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen, were originally deemed a terror threat by President Barack Obama’s administration, as part of the Terrorist Prevention Act of 2015.
Out of the 1,100 refugees admitted, 346 come from Syria, while 232 originate from Iraq. Meanwhile, 64 per cent of recent arrivals identify as Muslim, compared to just 31 percent of arrivals in the first week of the Trump administration.”
This shameful action by the U.S. State Department may have further increased the terrorist threat right here in America.
Since being elected, President Trump has put terrorists on notice.
Islamic terrorists know this just might be their last shot to enter America before Trump’s order is reinstated.
Instead of waiting until Trump fights it out in the courts, the State Department used this lapse to completely undermine President Trump.
However, this latest move by the State Department is no surprise.
Since Trump issued his executive order, over 900 State Department employees signed a petition rebelling against the order.
The Washington Post reported:
“We are better than this ban,” the memo states. “Looking beyond its effectiveness, this ban stands in opposition to the core American and constitutional values that we, as federal employees, took an oath to uphold.
The memo argues that as a nation of immigrants, the United States has a special obligation to ensure an immigration system that is as free as possible from religious tests, discrimination or stereotypes. The diplomats refer back to dark times in American history when nationality was a litmus test for immigration and certain citizens, such as Japanese Americans during World War II, were subjected to discrimination and mistreatment.
“Decades from now, we will look back and realize we made the same mistakes our predecessors: shutting borders in a knee-jerk reaction instead of setting up systems of checks that protect our interests and our values,” the memo states.”
The goal of Trump’s executive order is aimed at keeping radical Islamic terrorists out of America.
Upon hearing of the State Department’s increase in refugees, Trump took to Twitter and tweeted out the following:
“Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!”

The State Department’s latest move may be the cause of further terrorist attacks in America.
However, President Trump is fully committed to fighting radical Islamic terrorists, and he’s not afraid to fight on behalf of the majority of Americans who fully support his executive order.
Do you think the State Department made the right decision to allow refugees into America?
How do you think President Trump should respond?
