When Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday banning citizens of Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, and suspending the Refugee Admissions Program, he did a lot more than just anger activists.


Show Full Text

The order has left legal US residents stranded in their home countries, or in airports along the way, simply because they hold passports from Iran, Iraq, or one of five other countries on Trump's list. These are people with homes, family and friends in the US whom they are now separated from for at least 90 days, all in the name of preventing "foreign terrorist entry". Let's not forget about the thousands of refugees in Syria and elsewhere whose dreams of finding safety and peace are now crushed, and who may very well meet their deaths before the ban is lifted.

Massive protests erupted at major airports across the nation, and the Trump administration is already buried in lawsuits related to the travel restrictions. Parts of the ban preventing the movement of Green-card holders have reportedly been lifted, but the President's actions have already torn apart families across the world, and doomed the lives of others.

That is absolutely awful. I'm so sorry this is happening to you. If you don't matter in the US, come to NZ. You'll matter to us here!

It is not just this ban, but most kinds of nationalism, protectionism, banning, or in sum easy solutions to complex problems that will do more harm than good. Just look at the Brexit. The world is too complex to just say that is black and what is white and to try to only have one of them.

More than 10,000 people are killed with guns each year in the US, yet Trump refuses the idea of a registry for gun owners.

How is it possible Trump can't see how much pain is going to cause (or, better say, remain cold as ice at it)?!!

Not just one crazy man but millions of crazy people who voted for him knowing very well of his agenda. And the millions of people who are elated with his muslim ban right now. Don't just blame him for what's happening. Hitler was democratically voted chancellor too. They want exactly what is happening right now and what is going to happen in the next 4 years, that's why they voted for him. Half of America is rotten to the core.
