Why were we ever thinking of closing such a useful facility? Do you want those people hanging out near your neighborhood? Nice having them in Cuba. I think if we close the Guantanamo Bay prison we should move the prisoners to a detention center in Kalorama, the ritzy section of Washington where Barack Obama lives with a wall in front of his house.
Trump, who spoke at the top of a Cabinet meeting, also used the appearance to call for an end to the Diversity Visa Program under which the terrorist entered the country. Given that Saifullo Saipov is the second terrorist who has gotten in here under this program, it appears the “Diversity” part refers to terrorists, and non-terrorists.
President Trump this morning blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his sponsorship of legislation that created the Diversity Visa Program, under which Saifullo Saipov, who committed Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City, entered the country.
Trump expresses support for a merit-based immigration program. He may be right, but this is not the time to be creating a political issue out of the attack.
Republicans rightly criticize Democrats when they start making a political issue out of every tragic mass shooting while the bodies are still warm. Trump should be uniting the country instead of dividing it at a moment like this. And he especially should lay off the senator from New York, whose job it is to help with the healing from the worst terror attack in New York City since 9/11.
The terrorist came into our country through what is called the “Diversity Visa Lottery Program,” a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based.

Wow. Are we going to fight a war like we’re actually in a war? Treat an enemy that wants to destroy us like it’s an enemy that needs to be destroyed? What a novel idea! And no, despite what Obama told you to get reelected in 2012, al Qaeda is not all but defeated. The… Continue Reading
