Terminal 4 & Trump's Extreme Vetting

After President Trump signed an executive order enforcing extreme vetting of people from nations the Obama administration identified as harboring terrorists, protests have broken out.  About 109 of a hundred thousand were detailed in airports around the United States due to the new vetting process.  They were interrogated, papers verified and later released. The amount of time they were detained is said to have been three hours.

Many took to the airports, Battery Park in Manhattan and Copley Square in Boston to protect the executive order calling it hateful. They claim that the executive order is a ban on Muslims despite the order not stating this. The claim comes from Trump's words during the election season where he called for a ban on all Muslims until "we can figure out what the hell is going on." However, this executive order is not a ban of any sort. It is simply an extreme vetting order. The president has an obligation to protect the nation under the Constitution, Immigration Act of 1952 and 8 U.S. Code § 1182 - Inadmissible aliens.









Despite this, the ACLU won a temporary stay after bringing the case to court before Judge Ann Donnelly, an Obama appointed judge.

President Trump issued a statement reiterating that the executive order does not ban any Muslim and has nothing to do with religion.




A student from my alma mater, CUNY has been detained and deported. Here is a statement from the university:




It seems that those who are still angry at Clinton's loss are still trying to grind their ax.  Some in the Catholic Church are attacking President Trump over this despite the Catholic Church teaching that leaders have a right to protect their nations.






Also, the  Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People: People on the Move - N° 88-89, April - December 2002 Migration and the Social Doctrine of the Church says:


b. Is the right to emigration absolute? Can it ever be limited?
The SDC also recognizes the right of states to control entry of persons and their borders. They have a right and duty to protect their sovereignty as well as the internal order that guarantees security, basic human rights and freedoms. Thus states can make practical decisions that control immigration.[4] It is, however important to remember the principle that immigrants must always be treated with the respect due to the dignity of every human person. In the matter of controlling the influx of immigrants, the consideration which should rightly be given to the common good should not ignore this principle. The challenge is to combine the welcome due to every human being, especially when in need, with a reckoning of what is necessary for both the local inhabitants and the new arrivals to live a dignified and peaceful life.[5]
