Sunday morning liberal TV news headlines sell the truth short on refugee issue

Television news media networks across the nation are sadly, once again, deceiving the general population with dramatic headlines telling their audience of mass refugee banning across the land. By the sounds of the cries and headlines from the media, it sounds like our country is banning refugees from every nation around the world. This is clearly an exaggeration and is NOT true.

Let me make it clear, President Trump's ban on refuges involves ONLY seven countries. They are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. The primary reasons for this are clear. There is a very strong terrorist presence in all 7 of these countries. ISIS is known to operate in many of these countries. Further, it is very difficult to verify the background of refugees entering from these countries.

By viewing a number of these television programs (and headlines) this morning, the media is deceiving the public by exclusively avoiding some of the important facts. First they (many television news networks) make it sound like the ban is on all countries around the world. This is false. Second, they will avoid talking (especially in detail) about the numerous cases where a number of outspoken leaders in these countries have indicated how they detest our country. Sadly, an alarmingly large percentage of their population does not see anything wrong with jihad and the violence it promotes.

Further, many new sites "imply" that this (refugee ban) is permanent. President Trump has made it clear that the ban is temporary. Accordingly, it is only reasonable that we understand we need to verify people coming in from areas of the world where a large portion hate our citizens and our culture. If we cannot properly do this, we have a problem which our President is attempting to address.
