Woke up to a beautiful headline today.
"Donald Trump 'to sign orders restricting refugee access and immigration from Muslim countries'"
From another article on the legality of it, since oh so many morons kept saying MUH HUMUN RIGHTS and DIS IS RECIST AND ILEGEL!Quote
Candidate Trump was never particularly specific on the policy details of how the Muslim ban would work. But with President-elect Trump set to take office in January, and his pledge to implement the ban on day one now about to be put to the test, the question looms: Will he be able to do it, and if so, how?
I put that to several experts on US immigration law. Their answer was unanimous: Trump would be able to implement his ban. In fact, he would be able to do it easily. Congress has already granted wide power to the president to alter immigration rules, so he will not need congressional approval. If the ban is designed properly, it is virtually guaranteed to survive court challenges from liberal advocacy groups determined to derail it.
The president has nearly unchecked authority to ban people from entering the country
In 1952, Congress passed something called the Immigration and Nationality Act. It has been amended dozens of times subsequently, and currently exists as a 600-page behemoth with lots of very specific rules.
There is one section, 212(f), that is particularly relevant to the Muslim ban. It sets out criteria for “excludable aliens” — which noncitizens the president can choose, using executive powers, to prevent from entering the United States. Its wording is exceptionally broad:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
Translated from legalese: The president can ban whoever he wants, however long he wants, for whatever reason he wants.
“All he has to do is say ‘I think Muslims are not in the interests of the United States,’” says Stephen Legomsky, a professor emeritus at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis and the former chief counsel for US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Important part: “All he has to do is say ‘I think Muslims are not in the interests of the United States.’”
Makes perfect sense, because Immigrants are not American citizens and thus do not have the same rights as Americans. Get fucked, globalist pieces of shit. I love this man. #MAGA

btw - as germans we have ~50 years of experience with big amounts of immigration from countries like Spain, Greece, Italy, former USSR and a secular Turkey. There is only one group of the ones listed that is making headlines in one way or the other on a regular basis.
Now you want to tell me that muslim integration into western society will work where the countries of origin are non secular to some part even tribal societies? Stop smoking that left wing BS propaganda - being a left winger doesn't mean you 've to stop critical thinking, at least it was in the past.
Doing research for my counterarguments and came across this link. Good read, I haven't finished it yet but it is clear to me that neither religion is blameless in this centuries-long conflict.
