Will President Trump's travel ban make the U.S. safer?
The Supreme Court recently gave the Trump administration a small win on their controversial travel ban.
The justices granted a request from the Trump administration to block a federal appeals court decision that, according to the Justice Department, would have allowed up to 24,000 additional refugees to enter the United States than would otherwise have been eligible.
President Trump has consistently defended his travel ban, citing security concerns as his top priority.
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!
But opponents of the travel ban argue not only is it unconstitutional, it will actually make Americans less safe.
Convicted terrorists support Trump’s travel ban because it sends a message that is consistent with their extremist propaganda. The reality is that the travel ban will not impact terrorists nor protect Americans. It is more likely to negatively impact good people who are simply trying to escape dangerous regimes and/or be reunited with family.
