Almost immediately after President Trump signed the ‘Travel Ban signs were going up as fuel heated protests consumed American streets in response to the Presidents temporary travel ban. Whether these people feared the action to monitor and detain a grouping people compared to WWII. Like when the American government kept a close eye to Japanese Americans. Or whether these people were paid it certainly got Americans attention. Some from the right claimed it was an overreaction, claiming those against do not want the country safe. To keep a country safe no matter the freedoms and liberties it may hold, a systematic vetting should be valid to protect ourselves domestically. Additionally, the constitution provides no protections for those wishing to come here, we may screen anyone however, we can’t keep out those who legally have the right to be here.
This week President Trump will set out a revised travel ban and according to ABC News, the same 7 countries will continue to stay on the list. However, it’s to “exclude a ban on Syrian refugees, senior administration officials told ABC News”. The revision will also exempt green card holders and the citizens of the 7 countries who are citizens to the States.
According to CNN, the Presidents thoughts on the revision is “The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad decision,” said Trump during a news conference, referring to a decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that blocked his travel ban earlier this month”.
However, based on what has been floating around, Fox News reports the:
“White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the version being circulated was a draft and the final version should be released soon. The Wall Street Journal also reported that the current draft of the revised order focused on the seven countries but excluded those with green cards”.
With a newly revised temporary travel ban set to be in place, can the American people that took the streets start to put their differences aside? Maybe so. Although this was not a win necessarily for the President, it could be a right step in a direction where the American people and Trump can play on the same field.
