against Trump’s temporary travel ban on heavily terrorist run third world countries, saying “The government has pointed to no evidence… that any alien from any of the countries named in the order has perpetrated a terrorist attack in the United States.”
President Trump classically replied, “See you in court.”
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

However, it turns out terrorists have came into the United States from those seven countries. Would you look at that! According to the Center for Immigration Studies, 72 people from the seven countries under temporary delay have been convicted of terrorism charges since September 11th, 2001.
The director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan said, “Thirty-three of the 72 individuals from the seven terror-associated countries were convicted of very serious terror-related crimes, and were sentenced to at least three years imprisonment.” Vaughan then went on to state, “The crimes included use of a weapon of mass destruction, conspiracy to commit a terror act, material support of a terrorist or terror group, international money laundering conspiracy, possession of explosives or missiles, and unlawful possession of a machine gun.”
Even more interesting enough, 17 of these terrorists come into the counties disguised as refugees from the seven countries in question (Somalia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Syria), which is exactly what ISIS said they would do – disguise themselves as refugees to get into American territories.
Twenty-five of these convicts convicted of terrorism later went on to become U.S. citizens. Interesting how easily someone who was convicted of terrorism and even committed terror acts can just become a citizen.
Even as more evidence, Vaughn additionally wrote in her report that “President Trump’s vetting order is clearly legal under the provisions of section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which says that the president can suspend the entry of any alien or group of aliens if he finds it to be detrimental to the national interest. He should not have to provide any more justification than was already presented in the order, but if judges demand more reasons, here are 72.” Trump claims that his administration will win this legal case in order to keep the nation safe – and if not, the President said, “We also have a lot of other options, including just filing a brand new order.”
