Donald Trump has continually called for tougher vetting processes to protect Americans from another terror attack. Now the PC liberals who used to bash him for this idea, are preaching the same message. Case in point? Hillary Clinton. Check this out.
To fight “radical Islamic terrorism” and to “make America safe again,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump proposed today administering a new, ideological test for immigrants who want to enter the United States.
“We should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Youngstown, Ohio. “The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today.
“I call it extreme vetting,” Trump said.
Trump’s policy proposal is an expansion on his call in December for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims’ entering the United States.
“In addition to screening out all members of the sympathizers of terrorist groups, we must also screen out any who have hostile attitudes toward our country or its principles or who believe that Sharia law should supplant American law,” he said today.
“To put these new procedures in place, we will have to temporarily suspend immigration from some of the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world,” Trump said, adding that if he becomes president, the State Department and Department of Homeland Security will curate the list of regions where the policy would apply.
Hillary for America Senior Policy Adviser Jake Sullivan released a statement today, saying, Trump’s “so-called ‘policy’ cannot be taken seriously. How can Trump put this forward with a straight face when he opposes marriage equality and selected as his running mate the man who signed an anti-LGBT law in Indiana? It’s a cynical ploy to escape scrutiny of his outrageous proposal to ban an entire religion from our country and no one should fall for it.”
