Liberals are claiming that Trump’s travel bans are Islamophobic and racist and whatever other liberal term you want to throw in.
The truth is, Trump wants to avoid what U.K. is dealing with right now.
According to the Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism, British police are now making terror-related arrests “on a near daily basis”.
That is insanity!
A security expert also estimated the number of “committed Islamists” in the country is “between 6,000 and 10,000”.
Those numbers are way too high for anyone to be comfortable with. Will liberals start waking up now?
Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu revealed the astonishing scale of the struggle to contain terrorism in a statement outside New Scotland Yard on Friday.
“I wanted to reassure the public that our increased activity to combat terrorism over the last two years continues,” he said. The statement came following an “extraordinary day” in which police apprehended a migrant carrying a rucksack filled with knives in Whitehall and, in a separate incident, shot a woman in a niqab in a raid to foil an “active plot” in Willesden.
“Activity continues around the clock to identify and stop these threats,” said Basu, before his shocking admission that “we are making arrests on a near daily basis”.

Basu also paid tribute “to the bravery of my uniform and detective colleagues”. In late March he had alluded to the “horrors in London” after the Westminster terror attack that left Police Constable Keith Palmer stabbed to death.
“There are constant acts of immense bravery by officers – armed and unarmed – those that the public see when our officers run towards danger, just like yesterday, but a huge amount of unseen work that the public will never know about from us and our brilliant security services.”

Meanwhile, Director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, Anthony Glees, is the man that gave us those horrifying figures of 6,000 to 10,000 extremists in Britain.
Gleeson wrote in the Daily Mail:
“About 1,000 young British Muslims have left the freedom of the UK to travel to the Middle East and become murderous foot soldiers of Islamic State.
“Of that large group, 400 are believed to have returned. Only a tiny fraction – fewer than ten – have ever been brought to justice for their treachery.”
Gleeson has recommended the number of officers in the security services be expanded from 3,800 to 10,000.
He also called the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIMs) “useless” and should be dropped to make way for the return of the controversial Control Orders “in even tougher form”.
Trump’s travel ban isn’t looking so bad anymore…
It’s looking like a pretty good deal to us.
