The Facts and People Support Muslim Immigrant Ban

The media has made a great deal of the fact that Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence had tweeted his opposition to a complete Muslim ban. But checking the polls may change his mind. A series of recent polls proves that most Americans strongly or somewhat support temporarily banning all Muslims from entering our country. In just the last month, four major polls by Reuters, NBC, the Morning Consult, and Fox News all found that Americans support Donald Trump’s proposal even if they don’t support him. These polls also show that substantial numbers of Democrats, African-Americans, and 2012 Obama-voters support a temporary ban on Muslims or people from Muslim-majority countries.

Those polls were completed even before the most recent terrorist horror in Nice, France, which resulted in the murder of 84 and the injury of 200 more when a Muslim man intentionally rammed his truck through a crowded street. Millions were horrified by the terrorist’s apparent targeting of women, children, and families as he drove his truck in zigzag fashion. The threat of terrorism is not the only reason to stop the refugees, who are bringing diseases like tuberculosis, or “TB.” TB is one of six “comeback” diseases that had been virtually wiped out in America but are returning with refugees. The other five are measles, mumps, whooping cough, scarlet fever, and bubonic plague.

The facts show that Mike Pence and Donald Trump have properly identified the problem of mass immigration, and the American people agree with their solutions.
