MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, USA (sentinel.ht) – “The days of deadly ignorance will end,” blasted Donald Trump during a speech in New Hampshire Monday where he said he would ban immigration from areas of the world with a history of terrorism ties.
The Presumptive Republic Nominee for President gave a Monday afternoon speech in Manchester, New Hampshire in the wake of the early Sunday massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub that left 50, including the gunman, dead. It was the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. It deserves noting the gunman was born in New York to Afghan parents according to reports.
“The immigration laws of the United States give the president powers to suspend entry into the country of any class of persons. … I would use this power to protect the American people. When I’m elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we fully understand how to end these threats” Trump said, adding that “we have no choice.”
Trump called for immigration reform that “serves the interests and values of America.”
“We cannot continue to allow thousands upon thousands of people to pour into our country, many of whom have the same thought process as this savage killer,” he said, adding that “many of the principles of radical Islam are incompatible with Western values and institutions.”
“We’re importing radical Islamic terrorism into the West through a failed immigration system and through an intelligence community held back by our president. Even our own FBI director has admitted that we cannot effectively check the backgrounds of people we’re letting into America,” Trump said.
The New York billionaire also said that the U.S. has to “stop the tremendous flow of Syrian refugees” into the country. But only a fraction of the 10,000 Syrian refugees President Barack Obama pledged to admit have been allowed into the country. As of May 31, only 2,805 refugees have been admitted since October, according to the State Department.
