Donald Trump signed two executive orders on Friday that banned refugees and seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the states. But what will that really help stop terrorism?
Republican U.S. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have spoken and say that the executive order could actually do more to help recruit terrorists than improve US security.
“Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism,” they said in a statement, adding that the United States should not stop green card holders “from returning to the country they call home.”
The senators also said,”This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.”
Trump ultimately doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing. His xenophobia and Islamophobia will ultimately cause more danger than help the U.S.
Trump is putting our country and all of us at risk.
