Here is a remarkable excerpt from “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals,” President Trump’s executive order on immigration. You can read the full text here.
In order to protect Americans, we must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward our country and its founding principles. We cannot, and should not, admit into our country those who do not support the U.S. Constitution, or those who would place violent religious edicts over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry and hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice other religions) or those who would oppress members of one race, one gender, or sexual orientation.
The precision and comprehensiveness of this is deeply impressive. The idea that any of it would be remotely controversial shows how deeply confused the American public square has become during the decades of the hegemony of the Left.
