The left has always struggled with the concept of putting America first. They would rather have open borders, or send checks to those here illegally. The perpetual enemy of the left, President Trump, announced Tuesday evening in a tweet that he is issuing an executive order to temporarily ban all immigration in the U.S.
“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” -DJT
President Trump’s decision to put a hold on all immigration into America is his most bold move to date to stop the spread of the virus and save the economy. Since unemployment is rising due to mandatory shutdown in states, there is an increased priority to make sure the jobs still available are going to American workers.
The Trump Administration implemented the China travel ban in January, and followed it up a few weeks later with the Europe travel ban. By now banning all immigration, he has sealed off the country from foreign threats.
Liberal critics decried President Trump’s immigration ban as racist and xenophobic, the same labels they applied to previous travel bans that ended up being working and saving countless number of lives.
From the start, the President has put America first during his time in the White House. Now, it is becoming more important than ever that such policies are implemented during a time of crisis. Although, whether it’s a pandemic or not, the needs of our own citizens before those outside the country should be prioritized by our elected officials.
