Liberals who believe that we need to appease radical Islamic terrorists, just like British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain did with Adolf Hitler’s Nazis in the 1930’s, are up in arms about Trump’s executive order cutting off travel from countries known to create and harbor terrorists.
Congressman Trey Gowdy is not one of them. He knows that our country needs a sensible immigration policy, and one that does not lend itself to abuse by those who seek to destroy our country an Americans. Gowdy recently stood tall with Trump by releasing a powerful message about Trump’s order.
Said Gowdy, “Our nation has a long and rich history of welcoming those fleeing persecution. We also have a long and rich history of liberating those suffering under oppression. We are the most welcoming and generous country in the world, and we are a country of immigrants.”
He added, “The world we find ourselves in is dangerous and becoming increasingly so. Since national security and public safety are the preeminent functions of government, there is a fundamental duty to ensure the necessary background investigations can be done to stop anyone intent on doing harm from exploiting Americans’ generosity and taking more innocent lives.”
Concluded Trey, “American people deserve border and interior security. They deserve to know who is coming to our country, for what purpose, and for how long. They deserve to be assured those seeking entry into the country – regardless of the length of stay – have been vetted thoroughly and do not represent a security risk. I am committed to doing everything we can to keep Americans safe.” Do you agree with Trey Gowdy?
