I’m glad he was detained. I wish he could be detained for the rest of his miserable, taqiya life.

Wonder who is funding him. This lawsuit, along with the rest being filed as the progressives go into law-fare mode will fail.

Muslims love “lawfare”. It’s an islamo-supremacist strategy to attack us using our own laws.

Apparently, Atlanta isn't in the U.S.

Just to be clear, if he was detained, it was not because of what is contained in the order. The order is not about people that are already in the US.

i.e. he (and possibly those detaining him) is confused.

So CNN isn’t just anti-American. It isn’t, itself, American.

“Tawfeeq was detained Sunday at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for additional screening, delaying his entry into the United States.”

“delaying his entry”

He was delayed?

So what.

This is what it looks like when nations have borders - it might take a little longer to travel back and forth to Backwardistan.
