The Senate voted on Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslim’s from entering the U.S.
The Senate decided that they could not support the proposal.
“It is the sense of the Senate that the United States must not bar individuals from entering into the United States based on their religion, as such action would be contrary to the fundamental principles on which this Nation was founded.”
Sessions brought to light a very true point. “We cannot labor under the illusion that these are simple binary decisions, it’s not as though every applicant is either clearly tied to terrorists on one hand or absolutely safe on the other. Many people are radicalized after they enter. How do we screen for that possibility if we cannot even ask on a person’s views on religion and what it means for them as they carry out that religious view in the years to come?”
We can’t stop the refugees from turning after they enter. So maybe we shouldn’t let them in at all. Should we deny entrance of all Muslims to the U.S.?
