Banning the travel ban, not likely

I can’t say with certainty that the next gee-whiz tech company will not be founded here because of President Trump’s immigration ban, which was enacted over the weekend.

In the same breath I can’t say if another mass shooting was thwarted either.

What can be said again about President Trump, he doesn’t care about what opponents think. Whether that’s to his detriment is yet to be determined.

The Trump campaign’s promises of secure borders is being enacted, which seems to have surprised many.

I figure the many Americans are not used to having campaign promises fulfilled so quickly.

The travel ban from 7 countries —  Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — bars these citizens from entering the U.S. for the next 90 days, less judicial review here in the US.

The latest government figures indicate that 109 foreign nationals were denied entry over the weekend. It is not said whether they were deported or held here.

Certainly the backlash of demonstrations from airports across the country to the broadcast of the SAG awards Sunday night, you would get the impression that tens of thousands of people were affected.

Trump’s presidential order is broader than the 6-month travel ban on Iraq signed by President Obama in 2011, and may be scaled back upon judicial review.

And so ended the first full week of the Trump presidency, what will this week bring? God only knows.
