It sounds like Trump actually thinks we are at war with ISIL or Al Qaeda. He is so paranoid. We should not be putting any of our residents through such inconvenience. We should be inviting all residents from those banned nations into our country. We should not worry about them, we should celebrate them, like Canada and Germany do.

Just heard there was a terrorist attack on a mosque in Montreal tonight. The world is such a scary place.

@Susan - I think most people look at Germany as exactly what we are trying to avoice. Germany has welcomed muslim refugees, and paid for it in blood. 11 terrorist attacks in 2016, the worst being the 11 killed and 48 injured on 12/16 in the Christmas market. There were 13 islamic terrorist attacks in France, the worst being the NIce truck attack which killed 86 and wounded 202. As a woman, i hope you'd show some concern as to how the refugees have treated women in Germany - there were 1200 reported sexual assaults on New Year's last year:

"All of the incidents involved women being surrounded and assaulted by groups of men on the street.[29][30] Police reported that the perpetrators were men of "Arab or North African appearance" and said that Germany had never experienced such mass sexual assaults before.[20][30][31][32][33] The German Federal Criminal Police Office said the incidents were a phenomenon known in some Arab countries as taharrush jamai (translated as "group sexual harassment").[34][35][36] The attacks sparked an international outcry, a debate about women's rights, the sustainability of Germany's asylum policy, and social differences between European societies and those of North Africa and the Middle East."
