Donald Trump once again displayed his inexperience in governance when attacked immigrants anew – saying that
Somalis and other refugees from “terrorist nations” should be barred from entering the United States since Islamic State extremist group will sneak into the United States as refugees or immigrants. He then disclosed his list: Afghanistan, Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, Syria, Uzbekistan and Yemen.
Trump blamed terrorism attacks to the influx of refugees and immigrants into the country saying; were “having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s… safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”
Terrorism is the one thing in Trump’s mind – but what would be America like when there are no Filipinos in the work force especially doctors, nurses, caregivers and other compassionate career fields? Trump caused an uproar late last year when he called for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States, just to oppose his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s careful consideration when it comes to the plight of refugees and President Barack Obama’s stand on immigrants.
