RAY HANANIA: Points I made on the radio last night about Trump’s policy on immigration:

1 — It’s not a Muslim ban. It targets ANYONE who comes through seven countries, 1 terrorist entity (Iran) and six other dysfunctional failed states (Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.)
2 — It’s not a ban. It’s a suspension
3 — Iran is the most brutal when it comes to Americans immigrating to its country. The restrictions and weeks that you must sit at the airport or under security are outrageous. Some Americans have been jailed and accused of spying.
4 — The Trump administration has explained they are not banning people with Green Cards even though many have been stopped and blocked. It’s a part of the difficulty of implementing a national policy and those people will be allowed into the country.
5 — Muslims and Arabs who are protesting against this policy calling it racist are ignoring the FACT that the primary purveyors of racism in this country is the mainstream American News media which is falsely reporting the story.
6 — The most racist claim by the media is why didn’t the “Muslim Ban” include Saudi Arab and Egypt … in other words, the MEDIA REALLY WANTS A MUSLIM BAN
7 — Many of the protestors who have protested downtown wouldn’t dare protest inside the SouthSide of Chicago to demand fairness for African Americans who are being brutalized by crime and police civil rights violations. They care about the Refugees because they are an obscure concept that are not directly in their lives. But African Americans who live in Chicago and are plagued by violence are a real people who most of the protestors don’t want to live near or with. That’s why many of the big cities in this country are segregated and Blacks, Whites and Hispanics don’t really live together. Many only pretend to like each other.
