TWEETS: Journalists Melt Down, Cry Over Trump Refugee Executive Order
Journalists are not taking the news of President Donald Trump’s executive order pausing admission of refugees from seven nations very well. Many have taken to social media to express outrage over Trump’s action, forgetting former President Barack Obama did the same thing to Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011.
As a gay man, I feel the same way.

The travel ban is stupid. But it still leaves over 80 percent of Muslims (1 billion +) eligible to arrive here tomorrow.

Trump order begins by invoking 9/11 three times
9/11 hijackers were from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE & Lebanon
None of those countries banned pic.twitter.com/WaRyiBZ1S0

Policy merits aside, instituting even a partial ban on refugees on the day when GOP celebratea its "pro-life" bona fides…is curious.

Noted for history: A Trump administration executive order banned refugees from entering the United States on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

For 70 years and more, American science has triumphed because the USA got the best minds in the world. Now that's at risk. Thanks, Trump.

I favor serious vetting. Immigrants+visitors need to be asked about jihadism & extremism. Banning on the basis of nationality is just dumb.

1. Last night, I found myself in tears at the news. I do not recognize the America that welcomed my family so many years ago. #IAmARefugee
