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.
