Letter: Trump’s immigration plan makes sense to many of us

Trump’s immigration plan makes sense to many of us

Donald Trump has been severely criticized for calling for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration. Why the media hysteria? The Constitution protects freedom of religion for U.S. citizens. But citizens of foreign lands have no constitutional right to migrate.

Trump’s reason: The 9/11 terrorists were Muslim, as well as the shoe and underwear bombers, the Fort Hood shooter, the Times Square bomber and the San Bernardino killers. Thus, a pause, a timeout, on immigration from Muslim countries until we fix the problem makes common sense.

Americans do not want open borders with mass immigration. They want the borders secured and the broken immigration system fixed.
