Clarity on Immigration.

I just heard on the idiot box that awhile back, Trump said something about how he loved Muslims and that Muslims are great, but he has now said no more Muslims should be brought into the country. Why "but"? It's perfectly consistent to think highly of someone or something but also think that there are places they don't belong. You can like pancakes and syrup but not want them in your shoes. You can like the Pope but not want him in your bathtub with you. You can like the Ride of the Valkyries but not when you're trying to go to sleep. You get the idea.

Anyhow, with the following, it has become completely clear. All other candidates are either wildly enthusiastic about welcoming millions more Muslims to our country, or are egregiously wishy-washy or ambiguous on the subject.

Trump stands alone. No, I don't trust him. If he's elected I'll watch him like a hawk. But all the other candidates I can trust to continue the self-destructive Clinton/Bush/Obama policy of calling for the whole dysfunctional third world to immigrate here.

Trump issued this press release:

​DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON PREVENTING MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

(New York, NY) December 7th, 2015, -- Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing "25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad" and 51% of those polled, "agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah." Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, "Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again." - Donald J. Trump
