Trump admin has data that undercuts its own rationale for Muslim ban

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Fri Mar 17, 2017 2:07 am

At least two sets of internal data that have been available to the Trump administration — but that have never been publicized — appear to undercut the government’s argument for a travel ban that it had hoped would take effect Thursday, according to several officials familiar with the documents.

One internal report, titled “Most Foreign-Born US-Based Violent Extremists Radicalized After Entering Homeland,” analyzed roughly 90 cases involving suspected or confirmed foreign-born terrorists, finding that most of them probably embraced extremist ideology after they arrived in the United States, not before.

Another report, drawn on classified FBI data, has been used by the Trump administration to bolster its claims that refugees pose a risk of terrorism. But the figures that are the basis for that report undermine a key premise of the travel ban, with most of the suspects cited in the report coming from countries unaffected by President Trump’s executive order, according to officials familiar with the report.

“As man advances in civilization, and small tribes are united into larger communities, the simplest reason would tell each individual that he ought to extend his social instincts and sympathies to all members of the same nation, though personally unknown to him. This point being once reached, there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.”

You cannot put trump and logic in the same sentence. His style is eccentric and often downright illogical and he doesn't care who knows it.

People have pointed out that his own immigrant mother would have fallen foul of some of his crazy rulings - obviously not the Muslim rulings, but some others. She felt it necessary to tell little fibs in the census forms that she filled in. He came close to not being born in the USA - which is ironic as he often accused the previous POTUS of this.
Bit offtopic, apologies.
