Syrian Trump Supporters Just Watched Their Family Get Deported

Donald Trump is trying to make this nation a totalitarian nation. His recent act of banning refugees and Muslims from entering the country is inhumane, and the fact that he has deported many refugees makes it worst. People came here looking for a better life and they’re being sent back to a battlefield.

A Syrian family from Allentown, Pennsylvania watched horrified as their relatives were getting take away and sent back to their country. What makes matters worst for them is that they had voted for Donald Trump.

Dr. Ghassan Assali and his wife, Sarmad, are originally from Syria but have been in the United States since Clinton was in the presidency.

Sarmad’s two brothers, their wives, and their two children have been trying to flee Syria since 2003, and were finally approved for residency in the United States in December of 2016. Finally a ray of light was shone upon them, but Trump got in the way of all that.

Just hours after Trump had signed his executive order, Sarmad’s family would arrive to the United States only to be greeted by U.S. Customs giving them the bad news.

“Two security guards were waiting for them,” Sarmad Assali told NBC News. “They took them. They said, ‘Are you Syrians?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ They said, ‘Come with us.’”

Sarmad said that she voted for Trump because he promised to secure the border, not thinking that his immigration laws would affect her or her family in any way. White House Chief of Staff even announced that the new order wouldn’t apply to people with green cards, yet Samrad’s family, who had green cards, were sent right back to their homeland.

“I understand he wants to make America safe,” Assali said. “We’re all on with this. I definitely want to be in a safe place. But people need us and we need to be there for them.”

The family doesn’t like or believe in what the president is doing. Dr. Assali compared Trump’s America to ISIS.

“America is not America,” Dr. Assali said. “Like ISIS now, they ask, ‘Are you Christian? What do you believe?’ And if they are not saying what they believe, they kick you out and they cut your head off. So America, same thing. They ask you are you Muslim? You’ve got to change your religion. Thank you.”

Trump is tearing families apart, even people that supported him are seeing what kind of man he is.
