Donald Trump reportedly will announce today further executive actions on immigration, including at least temporary restrictions on accepting refugees from nations with ties to “radical Islamic terrorism.” Critics claim these new restrictions violate constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion.
In fact, no alien has a right to come to this country, let alone an entitlement to the liberties assured by our Constitution. The President has complete latitude in determining who is admitted into the United States. His bipartisan predecessors exercised this power in recent decades to block immigration by adherents to hostile ideologies like Naziism or communism that require their adherents to seek the destruction of our form of government.
Mr. Trump recognizes that we must not import in our time more immigrants committed to a similar outcome in the name of imposing here another supremacist totalitarian ideology, Islam’s Sharia.
He’s absolutely right.
