    Default Trump's Muslim Ban

    Trump executive order: Refugees detained at US airports - BBC News

    Finally in action. Expected lack of uproar on this forum, despite the major implications of it. I imagine a fair few CUKers would like the same thing applied here in the UK.

    Unbelievable, Outrageous and on Par with the kind of things Hitler did when he first came to power.... Yet nobody seems fussed. I guess we are ok if we are not a Muslim right?

    Worst thing of it all is that Saudi isn't even mentioned despite nearly all the 911 bombers being from... you guessed it Saudi (and 911 was the pretext for this ban).

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    In terms of the U.S. Isn't this akin to banning North Koreans or Cubans.

    Have read some republicans are having buyers remorse. A bit late now!

    One wonders how far he'll go before he's stopped.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Cubans had right to stay in USA id they managed to make it there - Obama canned it iust before he left office, North koreans simply don't get to escape in large numbers anyway - usually those that do represent good opportuniy to learn about NK regime

    I thought the Cuban right to remain being canned was in return for them not being thrown in prison when they went home? Essentially, they're safe to return so the right to claim asylum is no longer necessary.

    I think what Trump is doing is awful, misguided, and is going to have much wider repercussions than he can imagine. Google are recalling their staff from overseas travel to try and get them back into the country before the noose tightens. I'm not shouting about it here because I don't believe Trump cares what the CUK forum members think.

    The all seeing eye misses nothing.

    US border patrol 'checking people's Facebook for political views'

    US border agents are checking people’s Facebook pages for their political views before allowing them into the country, an immigration lawyer has claimed.

    That might make them look even more suspect, if they're young, as it may be suspected they are concealing their thoughts and true motives!

    I've long maintained that in a hundred years personal use of Facebook or something like it may be practically compulsory, and refusniks will be marginalised and financially disadvantaged.
