Donald Trump is humiliating and alienating the very people doing the heavy lifting in the fight against ISIS.


One is fighting ISIS in Aleppo province. The other is a longtime American resident who has found himself atop an ISIS hit list.

Both are Syrian nationals who, not days into Donald Trump’s disastrous, indefinite travel ban on citizens of their war-ravaged country, are finding themselves treated like the terrorists who want them dead most of all. Both have also been invaluable sources of mine over the past six years, as well as partners of the U.S. government.
Radwan Ziadeh has been a fixture in Washington, D.C., and his home of Alexandria, Virginia, for 10 years. He first arrived in the United States in 2007, a year before Damascus issued an arrest warrant for him and he was thus able to obtain Temporary Protected Status as a refugee fleeing human rights abuse. He and his wife have since had three children, all born in the U.S.
