Since you brought it up, if you don’t mind me asking, as a Muslim, how DO you feel about the ban?

I don’t have an issue with anything TEMPORARY that’s being done to review policies and procedures. Nor should anyone else. The blowback on the EO is unhinged.

I, myself do wonder why President Obama’s TSA selected those particular countries, and don’t think it would hurt to vet carefully, but I would be interested in your perspective.

My understanding is that the listed nations are either (1) state sponsors of terrorism (Iran) or (2) currently unable or unwilling to provide solid background information to the US regarding their passport holders/visa applicants.
