    "Following President Donald Trump’s executive orders restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority nations on Friday, a number of protests have strung up across the country, under the banner #MuslimBan.

    Earlier today, protests outside of New York City’s JFK airport came after passengers from affected countries with Visas were stopped at customs and were not permitted to enter the country."

    From Jodi Kantor:

    This afternoon I was at O'Hare, with a group of volunteers awaiting one of the last Syrian refugee families to arrive before President Trump signed orders halting the program. The volunteers, some of them children or grandchildren of refugees themselves, were determined to give the new arrivals the warmest possible welcome anyway. Here's what they had to say:

    What we should really protest is the tiny bag of peanuts you get on a Delta flight these days.

    Yes. Let's just make jokes about this. That's the exact appropriate response...

    Ok, here is a "hip hip hooray!" for Trump signing an EO banning travel from terrorist-producing states.

    I guess Trump doesn't have business interests in the the top 7 states that support, promote, and enact current terrorist threats.

    Blame Obama, Bush, and the prior administrations for creating a state terrorist list that tops out with those 7 states. Just imagine the calamity if the Trump administration banned the top 10.

    What information do you have that would make Saudi and Turkey a high risk for exporting terrorism? Is it just your opinion or do you have actual proof of cells and plans?

    State department state sponsor of terrorist list. Active war zones where we have soldiers/units deployed actually conducting war time missions where people are dying and drones are flying, and a country where we lost an ambassador and embassy because of a video.

    Saudi school textbooks are known to be based on Wahhabism.
    It's no secret Saudi is a terrorist breeding ground.

    This good documentary shows a little at 11:00

    15 of 19 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia for ****s sake. But Cheeto Mussolini has business ties there so he'd never ban them.

    So the fact that actual terrorists have already come from those countries means nothing to you?

    Then why didn't the Obama administration add them to the high priority list. These seven countries weren't randomly pulled out of a hat.

    Afghanistan, Pakistan, and nigeria are well ahead of Saudi and turkey on the short list for terrorism.

    So the actual fact that Hitler was from Germany back in WW2 means that Angela Merkel is an active nazi leader today?

    Why not. According to your left leaning head bobblers he is going to become a trillionaire with all of his corruption from the other conflicts of interest he has going on. Saudi is meaningless in his idiotic orange cheeto moron based plot to control the world.

    Lets focus on NOW. Trump is president NOW. So the fact that Saudi is not on the list is something Trump has to correct.

    But to answer your question .... OPEC(Oil), and Saudi has massive holdings in the US market, then there's federal reserves. Basically money, money, money!!!!

    But remember, ain't Trump is suppose to be DIFFERENT!!! ;);)

    Then lets see the evidence that Saudi or Turkey is actively pursuing terrorist goals against the US. We aren't at war with them, they aren't on a state department terrorist list because they are allies.

    What is the purpose of denigrating Saudi... there were a dozen plus hijackers 16 years ago and Osama bin laden was killed 6 years ago... How is that relevant to today?

    Your only answer is that trump is a billionaire (and you hate him) and saudi has money...

    It's hopeless, you're going to deny or believe what you want. What you're asking has already been answered by myself and other posters.

    I never thought I'd see the day America protests properly managed immigration.

    This place has gone full stupid.

    They've been trying to kill us since I was a teenager, and I'm retiring inside of 10 years. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that they are all bent because they can't come in.

    If trump said he was 100 percent against nuking argentina... Madonna would be offering blow jobs to anyone who would attack them and the rest of the "sane" liberals would be yowling in agreement like a bunch of feral cats.

    Soros has a lot of money to protest everything Trump does, and you can expect him to keep paying the professionals to stir things up. Plenty of non-paid protesters will show up. All he has to do is pay the core and whip up the followers.

    These are all paid protests. When they start showing up at airports that don't even have any inbound passengers then you know it's ********.
