Donald Trump has been busy pounding out executive orders and making deals in a furious attempt to keep his campaign promises.
One of the most controversial issues during the presidential race was Trump’s stance on immigration and his latest executive order has liberals furious.
President Trump has effectively placed a ban on visa entry for 90 days for people coming from the following seven countries: Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia. The lamestream leftist media has sparked protests across the country claiming the order to be racist and pointing out that the decree also includes interpreters who help the U.S. military in Iraq.
The Independent Journal Review wanted to gain a better perspective from someone who understands life in a country full of jihadists. They chose to speak with “Johnny Walker,” who worked as an Iraqi translator to famed sniper, Chris Kyle, during the Iraq War.
Walker wasted no time in getting straight to the issues.
“I agree 100% President Trump’s decision. The national security of the United States is a paramount issue.
All President Trump is doing is ensuring that people can go about their day without living in so much fear. Women won’t have to worry about walking around the mall; kids won’t have to worry about going to the school.
Look, these countries don’t have a database that keeps track of its citizens. And we can’t depend on a government database in countries that do, because if they have one it has a political agenda behind it.
It wouldn’t be hard for someone to get into the U.S. whose loyalty lies with ISIS or a militia aligned with Iran. While the militia isn’t necessarily our enemy right now, they don’t have loyalty to the U.S., they are loyal to the interests of the government that funds them. And that government says “Death to America.”
ISIS’s strongholds are in Iraq and Syria. We all know what they want to do to Americans.”
He explained the complicated relationships and terrorist ties within the Iraqi government itself while stressing the importance for national security.
“Besides, the government of Iraq is involved with the militia who gets all their support from Iran, the number-one state sponsor of terrorism. ISIS has a haven in Libya. Al-Shabaab is in Somalia and has pledged their allegiance to ISIS.
Iran has several terrorist groups affiliated with it. Yemen has Al-Qaeda, ISIS and the militia. And in Sudan, Hamas raises money for terrorism and has a presence.
The bottom line is this: Americans need to understand that this is for national security.”
Walker did have some reservations concerning the executive order banning immigrants from Muslim countries and how the interpreters, who risked their lives to help American soldiers, earned a shot at American citizenry.
“But we also need to be concerned with the interpreters, linguists and soldiers who worked shoulder-by-shoulder with the U.S. to fight against terrorists. There are thousands of translators and friendly forces over there who earned the right to come to America.
They’ve all become targets to groups like ISIS because they worked with America. They made many sacrifices in doing so, they deserve a second chance.”
Of course, Walker is speaking from experience and relates how his own family became targets because of his assistance to America.
“I was one of those translators. I worked with Navy SEALs to help kill the enemy. Working with the American military, made my family and me a target. Al-Qaeda murdered my brother because of me helping the Americans.
There are translators over there, who have proved their loyalty. ISIS and other groups keep a list of their names. It’s not like in Washington, D.C., you can’t just hide out somewhere.
In all seven countries, you’re either known by your family or tribe, and everyone is connected. You cannot hide yourself, they will find you. When the terrorists find you, they don’t just murder you, they murder your brother, sister, dad, mom, grandparents, cousin, and friends, too.”
Despite his inability to completely agree with Trump’s executive order, Walker express his full support of Donald Trump and his decision to place the 90 day ban.
“I am in full support of the decision that the president has made. We all need to forget about ourselves and put American lives first. Trump’s decision will help prevent terrorism and the death of more innocent people.”
At the end of the interview, Walker posed his own question to everyone who thinks Trump is a racist for placing the ban on Muslims from entering into the country.
“What about all the other rich Muslim countries? They banned Muslim immigration from the very beginning. Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar— are they racist, too?”
Trump has stated many times that we shouldn’t ban all Muslims, only the bad ones. However, the problem comes in determining who is good and who is intent on causing destruction, mayhem and death within our borders. With the current flow of immigrants across our border, as allowed by the Obama administration, it is impossible to determine anything of importance.
President Trump is displaying the prowess of a man who knows how to solve problems. If your kitchen sink is leaking, the first thing you must do is turn off the water supply. Then you can fix the leak or else it’s one big slippery mess all over the floor.
