Immigration Issues

Paul Ryan
Islamic immigration has been at the forefront of politics in Europe, Asia (including Russia) and the United States. Allowing unrestricted Islamic immigration without THOROUGH vetting, and it includes a consideration of religion, is complete folly.

Speaker Paul Ryan weighs in on the issue, and I have no idea why he feels this way. Most Americans disagree with Speaker Ryan. At this point so would most French, Belgium, German, Polish and Hungarian people.
(Breitbart - op cit) By declaring that it would not be “proper” or “appropriate” for the United States to consider the religion of a visa applicant— or whether the applicant supports Sharia law or Muslim theocracy — Ryan is effectively suggesting that the United States should not be allowed to select whom we admit based on likelihood of assimilation.
Maybe this is why Speaker Ryan has so much difficulty endorsing a Trump presidency? 

I don't suggest that Speaker Ryan is not entitled to his own opinion, but I think that it's a dangerous opinion when you consider it in context with the larger issue not just nationally but internationally.
By way of a post script, how many Sunni Syrian refugees did the Saudis take in? (answer is 0) That being the case, why did they make that decision?

  1. The first concern an any government official is the safety and protection of the American people. Foreign and Domestic... remember? Religion, belief in a certain law or way of life is definitely a concern, especially when they vow to kill Americans or people who do not believe the way they do. To hell with Ryan.

    1. It would be interesting to see who has contributed to Ryan's campaign, or to understand who has set up an account for him off-shore. I'm not accusing but I do suggest that religion is a litmus test when somebody comes from Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and so forth. Yes, they have sworn to kill us. Why can't we consider that?

      I can't understand why Ryan has taken the approach that he has. It makes NO sense.

  2. Allowing barbarians access to the mainstream of civilization doomed the Roman Empire.

    But this time, we'll manage things differently with the barbarians. We'll politely ask them to stop being assholes. That'll work, for sure.

    1. Savages are who they are. Ryan has somehow embraced the concept that bringing them here is a good idea. As you suggest, history has shown us that it's definitely NOT a good idea. We don't have to go back to Rome either - this year and last year in Europe tells us all that we need to know.

  3. Just like Boehner, the Democrat leadership has something on Ryan.

    1. I used to have a good opinion of Ryan, back when he ran for VP. I'm sad to see this side of him - and I'm glad that he was never VP. He's smarter than Biden is, which in a sense would have made him more dangerous.

      This is why they all fear Trump. And it's why America wants Trump.

  4. According to progressive dogma, judging Muslims is racist, or something - even though religion isn't race. Then again, sexual preference isn't race. Nor is gender identity. Nor is political idiocy.

    Yet all are protected species according to progressives.

    And Ryan? He's just a ninny-wimp.

    1. How difficult is that?

      Apparently Ryan is an open border guy. I just don't get it.
