Top Democrats fume after Trump expands travel ban to six new countries

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of a number of top Democrats to rip into President Trump’s decision to expand the travel ban to include six more countries on Friday -- with Pelosi describing it as “discrimination disguised as policy.”

“The Trump administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law," she said in a statement. "The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy."

The initial seven countries have restrictions on both immigrant and non-immigrant visas, but Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf told reporters that the six countries announced Friday are very different from the current seven, which is why the restrictions are lighter.

“These countries, for the most part, want to be helpful, want to do the right thing, have relationships with the U.S. and are in some cases improving relations, but for a variety of different reasons failed to meet those minimum requirements that we laid out,” he said.

Criteria considered when judging countries included to what extent the countries share information on passports and prospective bad actors, as well as whether or not the country poses an elevated national security risk in relation to crime, terrorism and illegal immigration.

But the more nuanced approach did not appear to soften Democratic complaints about the move.

“With this latest callous decision, the President has doubled down on his cruelty and further undermined our global leadership, our Constitution and our proud heritage as a nation of immigrants,” Pelosi said.

Aw, is Tehran Nancy so wise? She not only gets her news from the kooks at CNN, but her constitutional advice from a disbarred lawyer. https://t.co/d84fSDog7Y— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) January 11, 2020

Could someone explain to me how a travel ban threatens our security? It seems to me, it does just the opposite. What is the Democrat’s argument here?

The Trump administration is expanding restrictions to include Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Tanzania and Sudan. Those are added to the current seven countries already included in the ban: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

If he did nothing, they would fume about that as well. So, better to have them fume with regards to his taking the right steps, opposed to him doing nothing. 8>)

Immigration without assimilation is invasion.

A further reminder, as if we need it, as to what the Democrats are going to do if they get control of the White House again.

And they will at some point. The question is, can we keep them out long enough to restore some sanity before they do?

IMO, even if we can get President Trump reelected this year, short of a miracle, the Dems will win in 2024. Nothing but Bush league “republicans” waiting in the wings - sure losers.

Blah...blah...blah. Nancy just strings words together to make an incoherent noise. The Supreme Court ruled several times that the president has the power to control immigration in reaction the challenges to the first travel ban.

Thanks Pelosi for the concern, but my country Nigeria deserves more than the travel ban bc our leaders are not just devils but also talk as if the US belongs to them. They are destroying Nigeria with the hope of leaving a dead country for the poor and run to hide in the US— Mayor Ogbonna Ernest (@comrademayor) February 1, 2020

Thank you @realDonaldTrump for the travel ban on Nigeria. Our leaders cannot keep talking and behaving like touts, destroying our country and still expect to run to other countries where things are done well and leaders act and speak with sanity and respect.— Mayor Ogbonna Ernest (@comrademayor) February 1, 2020
