Trump dump

Martellus Bennett isn't afraid to get candid about his stance on President Donald Trump. In the aftermath of the Patriots' overtime Super Bowl victory over the Falcons, the New England tight end said he's not planning on visiting the White House if his team is invited by the president.
“I’m not going to go," he told the Dallas Morning News Sunday night. "It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter

Leading technology companies including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Netflix and Uber were among the signatories to a legal brief [against the Trump travel ban] from companies including Levi Strauss, filed on Sunday. “The order represents a significant departure from the principles of fairness and predictability that have governed the immigration system of the United States for more than 50 years,” the brief stated.

More hypocrisy....they never made a peep when Obama did same to Iraqis in 2011, or when other presidents have done similar actions for a given time period.

What they really want to stop is any effort to reduce immigration to provide them with cheaper labor, whether it be low-wage Mexicans or high-tech Indians.

Funny how the Left support this corporate welfare and could care less about ordinary Americans.

Superficially the 2011 Obama travel ban may look a bit like tRumps's, but it isn't. Obama's travel ban was much narrower in scope and there never was a complete ban on Iraqis entering the US, though the numbers of immigrants did dwindle for a few months. BTW did you notice tRumplethinskin's ban doesn't affect Mexican or Indians, so corporate Amerikkka can still get it's workers. tRump's wall won't make a difference either, except to waste US Taxpayer money.


I'm much more concerned with the ban on letting in refugees, since usually refugees are trying to escape the horrors of US military intervention or US funding of local wars and despots. If we want fewer refugees coming to the US then the US should end it's military adventures abroad and it's backing of corrupt despots.
