Washington Post whines about Trump power on refugees if elected president
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2016
That is not a surprise, but what was a surprise is that the vast majority of the commenters at the Washington Post editorial on Sunday were cheering Trump on! Readers of the Washington Post!
Mike Pence as governor of Indiana may not have the power to block certain refugees from his state, but the WaPo acknowledges that a President Trump does! The Post obviously thinks this information is disqualifying for Trump. I maintain that the Trump campaign needs to start telling this to his vast audiences!
Here is a bit of the WaPo editorial (I didn’t snip any of their whinny biased lines):
A President Trump could slash the number of refugees allowed to enter the country, including from Syria, downgrading President Obama’s goal of admitting 110,000 in the fiscal year that started Saturday. Federal law gives presidents the power to bar any “class of aliens” they deem “detrimental to the interests of the United States,” so Mr. Trump could as promised ban immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.
Now go there quickly and see the comments! The majority are for this novel concept: “I like the idea of sending them all back!” (Person20).
See my post of last week on Obama’s FY2017 110,000 ceiling and how Trump can drop it!
