    Why didn't they wait to have their own Attorney General in place or known that by extending the ban to those with green cards would be enough in itself to have it stuck down as unconstitutional a record 3X in one week?

    Given that the Trump's pride doesn't allow for his Administration to make mistakes, how can he learn from them - he just keeps adding the names of those who are performing their constitutional duties to his "enemies list!"
    Let's just call it what it is: ineffective. The bottom line is that Trump and company needed to act on something. Their base called for it, so something had to be done. Unfortunately for Trump he doesn't have enough of a grasp of his own limitations to understand that it was done incorrectly. Further, the data simply doesn't support his reasoning. Not that it really matters because those who support him don't value such things. At any rate, it will be interesting to see how this plays out going forward.

    And, your point is what? New Zealand, for example, has the world's largest Polynesian city, Auckland. We have sizable communities of folk from other nations. This is not a game where we play "mine is bigger than yours.", this is about real humans with real lives, all of who are as important was you or I.

    Exactly.

    The same is the case in how Street Gangs; various White Supremacy and Militia groups; Cosa Nostra; various Religious Sects, and so on, recruit via radicalization - all within the U.S., by U.S. citizens nowhere even remotely connected to the Middle East.

    In fact, an already existing radicalization of sorts is the very tactic that Trump not only tapped into, but exploited throughout his campaign.

    Most within any disenfranchised group are basically open to someone coming along able to tap into their sense of being disenfranchised either to lead them towards one, basically radical movement or another, towards the greater good, or against themselves to their great detriment.

    Hitler tapped into that towards a monstrous evil.

    Dr. Martin Luther King tapped into that towards a greater good.

    The Pedophile taps into that towards one of the worst of evils.

    Gandhi tapped into that for the greater good.

    And so on, and so forth.

    Obvious, but to those ever stuck in either or, black or white extremes, of one kind or another.

    Regrettably, for many on here such is ever a competition of sorts between themselves and others.

    And worse; not a very friendly one.

    Most of whom assert they are "Christian."

    Never mind the Scripture against such need to ever out do others and what that can only lead to.

    Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

    Trump doesn't want Americas murdered being that he actually is an America. Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10
