This Is Just The Beginning Experts Say.….

There is much angst in America across many Immigrant communities at the recent travel ban imposed by the tRUMP administration.
Even as as I use the term immigrant, to define the communities unnerved by the executive action, it becomes less clear as to what actually constitutes immigrant within that context . This as people with valid visas and green cards and we are told even US citizens are being turned away from entering and re-entering the country.

The roll-out of the exec­u­tive order are at this moment for sev­en coun­tries. They are Libya, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Sudan Yemen and Somalia.
However many expect that this roll-out is a tri­al bal­loon, float­ed by senior tRUMP advis­er Steven Bannon the Alt right white Nationalist who now sits on the National secu­ri­ty coun­cil, and is report­ed to be his most trust­ed advi­sor.

To sup­port this claim that this is just the begin­ning the La Times report­ed that tRUMP’s top advi­sors and chief strate­gist Steve Bannon and senior advi­sor Stephen Miller, see them­selves as launch­ing a rad­i­cal exper­i­ment to fun­da­men­tal­ly trans­form how the U.S. decides who is allowed into the coun­try and to block a gen­er­a­tion of peo­ple who, in their view, won’t assim­i­late into American soci­ety.

Finally find­ing it’s voice on things out­side bul­ly­ing small nations, Human Rights Group Amnesty International issued an urgent call for Britain to do more to fight the pol­i­cy, which effec­tive­ly bans cit­i­zens from three African and four Middle Eastern coun­tries from enter­ing the US. It was accom­pa­nied by a 120-day sus­pen­sion of all US refugee pro­grammes.

Euronews says tRUMPS trav­el ban has crushed lives but it’s just the begin­ning. http://​www​.euronews​.com/​2​0​1​7​/​0​1​/​3​1​/​t​r​u​m​p​s​-​t​r​a​v​e​l​-​b​a​n​-​h​a​s​-​c​r​u​s​h​e​d​-​l​i​v​e​s​-​b​u​t​-​i​t​-​i​s​-​j​u​s​t​-​t​h​e​-​b​e​g​i​n​n​ing.
CNN​.com says Donald Trump’s trav­el ban fun­da­men­tal­ly changes American his­to­ry.
Only time will tell if Trump’s trav­el ban comes to be regard­ed in the same light as the Alien and Sedition Acts signed into law by President John Adams in the late 18th cen­tu­ry, which made it eas­i­er to deport for­eign­ers and imposed restric­tions on new immi­grants.
Other his­toric par­al­lels could include the intern­ment of Japanese Americans dur­ing World War II and the witch hunts by Senator Joseph McCarthy against alleged com­mu­nists in pol­i­tics and the arts in the 1950s. cnn said.

As the storm cloud gath­ers the main stream media engages in a cir­cle of stu­pid­i­ty over whether the exec­u­tive order con­sti­tutes a ban.
Sean Spicer the white house press sec­re­tary said the action is not a ban even though he him­self said it was a Muslim ban pre­vi­ous­ly.
But Spicer is not impor­tant , tRUMP him­self said it was a trav­el ban .
So lets see whether it is a ban!
People from the 7 coun­tries named will not be allowed to enter the United States for at least 90 days , even though they have green cards or valid visas .
If they can­not come in, is that a ban or not ? If the Syrians are stopped indef­i­nite­ly ‚is it or is it not a ban , you decide?

USA today said “The chill­ing effect is just enor­mous”, ‘World is going to start clos­ing the door.
Despite the out­rage , it must be acknowl­edged that dONALD tRUMP is doing exact­ly what he said he was going to do .
For almost two years he cam­paigned on these very same poli­cies.
He promised to do exact­ly what he is doing if elect­ed to the white house.
Interesting times are ahead, reports indi­cate that there are new exec­u­tive orders in the draft stages being cir­cu­lat­ed in the white house which will tar­get immi­grants with green cards right here in the United States.

Those who sat on the side­lines and pre­tend­ed that this was a joke must now agree that the joke is on them.
Those who for one moment believed that this pres­i­den­cy would be about any­thing but what tRUMP cam­paigned on is in for a rude awak­en­ing.
Sure today the Muslims feel what it feels like to be black.
We saw women turn up in num­bers across the coun­try after the inau­gu­ra­tion to protest , but where were they before the elec­tions?
The like­li­hood that more and more groups will be affect­ed by this pres­i­den­cy in real ways is almost guar­an­teed.
Tragic though this is it may indeed be the turn­ing point which final­ly once and for all turns this ugly putrid racism in this coun­try on it’s head.
The more peo­ple who come togeth­er to say “no” the more like­ly it is that dis­crim­i­na­tion will final­ly be a thing of the past.
