A very interesting poll was taken regarding Pres. Trump's temporary halt to immigration from 7 Arab nations with a history of exporting terrorists. You can watch any major media news broadcast (except Fox) and assume the whole country is against this temporary halt but this reputable poll says otherwise. What do you think of it?

_________________________________________________________________________________________

In a poll that’s sure to come as a shock to the liberal media and their friends in the Democrat Party, most of America’s voters agree with President Donald Trump’s decision to press pause on Muslim migration from terror-prone nations.

Here’s what the latest Rasmussen Reports poll found:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists form coming here… 

Similarly, 56% favor a temporary block on visas prohibiting residents of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States until the government approves its ability to screen for likely terrorists… 

These findings have changed little from August when 59% of voters agreed with Trump’s call for a temporary ban on immigration into the United States from “the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world that have a history of exporting terrorism” until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists….

The refugee ban is supported by 82% of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Democrats are opposed by a 53% to 34% margin. The numbers are nearly identical for the temporary ban on visas from these seven terrorist-plagued nations.

The underlying numbers are even more impressive. The majority of African-Americans support Trump’s immigration orders, and only a slim majority of Democrats oppose the orders. When the numbers are calculated it becomes hard to understand exactly where the heated opposition to Trump’s orders is coming from.

While the President has faced backlash from both the media and Democrats, it’s been the opposition from other Republicans that has been most disconcerting for his administration. However, some in the GOP are also getting more vocal in their defense of the President’s decision. Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) released a statement on Monday reminding everyone that America is the most generous nation on the planet, but that our government also has a duty to protect her citizens.

Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC):

“Our nation has a long and rich history of welcoming those fleeing persecution. We also have a long and rich history of liberating those suffering under oppression. We are the most welcoming and generous country in the world, and we are a country of immigrants.

The world we find ourselves in is dangerous and becoming increasingly so. Since national security and public safety are the preeminent functions of government, there is a fundamental duty to ensure the necessary background investigations can be done to stop anyone intent on doing harm from exploiting Americans’ generosity and taking more innocent lives.

American people deserve border and interior security. They deserve to know who is coming to our country, for what purpose, and for how long. They deserve to be assured those seeking entry into the country – regardless of the length of stay – have been vetted thoroughly and do not represent a security risk.

I am committed to doing everything we can to keep Americans safe just as I am committed to defending religious liberty and providing refuge to those fleeing persecution.”

  • Yes I saw this the other day, when I was watching all the demonstrations against your fledgling president.  Our TV kept quoting how many people were demonstrating here (UK) and there and how many people had signed petitions.  You know it angered me.  The reporter said that over a half million people had demonstrated in the UK, but I asked; "What of the other 61 Million people in this country who are not demonstrating?"  These people who do this, like the day after the UK voted to come out of the EU, do they not believe in democracy?  No! they just want their own way all the time and never mind the interests of others, or their beliefs; the abortion lobby, the 'Humanists' who campaign against the faith, against the dearly held beliefs of others, these are just selfish people who are totally egocentric, and the exact opposite to our Lord, they are the antichrist!
