Muslim migrant ban a step short – close the border

What a real leader does at a time of war is take decisive action — even if it’s unpopular or politically incorrect.

Donald Trump’s calling for a ban on any Muslims being allowed in the U.S. “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on” is that brand of leadership.

But he should take his immigration stance one step further.

We should temporarily halt all immigration from every country across the board. Why? Our immigration system is broken, 
presenting a serious national security threat during a time when we’re at war with a very dangerous and capable enemy — ISIS.

In an age of terror, we simply cannot continue on the current course — when ISIS is vowing to level the White House and Iran is violating U.N. 
security council resolutions by launching ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

Trump sees the big picture, President Obama does not.

Trump’s bold statement comes on the heels of the biggest terror attack on our soil since 9/11 — committed by Muslim jihadists — who pledged allegiance to ISIS shortly before slaughtering 14 innocent Americans at the community center in San Bernardino, Calif., last week.

The female terrorist, Tashfeen Malik, exploited our sloppy immigration system and entered the country without being properly vetted.

What Trump gets is that radical Islam is at war with us and we’re at war with radical Islam. To the contrary, our Muslim-appeasing president would never utter such statements because he’s too busy being in denial.

Trump said yesterday “it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why, we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”

The Republican front-runner is saying we can no longer afford to stand by and let 130 die in Paris, 14 in San Bernardino and countless more until somebody in the Oval Office fixes the immigration system once and for all.
