Trump Travel Ban Kept Nearly 40,000 People Out of U.S.

According to the latest numbers from the State Department, more than 37,000 visa applications were denied by the United States, thanks in part to President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from several Middle Eastern countries known as hotbeds of terrorism. The ban, which was challenged in court by blue states like Hawaii and California, as well as the ACLU, was ultimately permitted to go forward by the Supreme Court in 2017. And while there is no way to know how many terrorists were kept out of the United States thanks to the ban, we can rest assured that under this administration, our country’s international immigration and visitation rules are no longer in complete chaos.

To be sure, 37,000 visa applications are a drop in the bucket when compared to the total number of visas the U.S. rejects every year. Federal government documents show that nearly 4 million would-be immigrants to the U.S. are rejected annually. And there is no way to know how many people from Somalia, Iran, Syria, and others on the travel ban list simply decided there was no reason to apply for a visa since the ban was in effect. Thus, the total number kept out of the country could be even higher.

President Trump implemented the ban shortly after taking office in an effort to stem the flow of terrorists into this country from havens in the Middle East. Derided as a “Muslim ban” by the left, the executive order left many Muslim countries completely out of the equation while also targeting countries like North Korea that probably don’t have but a handful of practicing Muslims in their entire population. But the left could never get past Trump’s campaign speech, where he called for a “complete and total shutdown” of Muslim immigration in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

The courts bought into that line of argument, ruling time and again that because Trump said that on the campaign trail, he was somehow “less than” President of the United States. Meaning, in other words, that a single speech during the campaign could somehow force Trump to forfeit his legal powers as President. It was an absurd and illogical point of argument, but it was enough for several liberal judges to block the ban.

Thankfully, the Supreme Court was able to see through this nonsense and lift the injunctions.

  1. Apparently more democrats in Washington DC need to feel the direct devastating effects of the crimes Muslim terrorists and illegal immigrants inflict on American citizens instead of embracing their deadly ways and even allowing Muslim terrorists in our senate.

    • Totally agree. Maybe we should be handing out brochures at the border with all the names and addresses of Washington liberals and Hollywood elites that embrace terrorists and illegals and are against the Wall.

  2. Many Lives were saved! Thank You POTUS Trump!
    The Democrats are desperate, they realize they have NO message, and NO leader, and President Trump will be in the White House until 2025. The Democrats offer a lousy alternative to their constituents:
    Killing Babies, leads to Death Panels to let Senior Citizens and Critically Ill DIE
    Open Boarders
    Repeal 1st & 2nd Amendments
    Tax all workers, 50%+ and wealthy 90%+
    Legalize Narcotics & Legalize Prostitution
    Wealthy and corporations will flee, the economy will collapse within 3 years, the dollar will have NO value, the military will be weak if they even exist and our enemies might invade.
    The above is an evil plan by the Democrats, they already control the Media
    (90% of the media are owned by 6 corporations) who are controlled by affluent shareholders like George Soros, The Rothschild Family, Sinclair’s, Bloomberg’s. They are following exactly what Soviet Union’s leader Nikita Khrushchev said would happen back in 1963.

  3. people, wake the hell up.
    why dont these muslims take off those stupid burkas. first they leave middle east for feeling supressed, then they come here a go right back to the thing they left for.

  4. Americans need to close all of the Muslim 22 training camps that are in the USA. These camps are training camps for ISIS and other groups of Muslims that could bring harm to Americans. All Mosques need to be periodically checked for Jihad trainees and extremist that could rise up and endanger Americans. Muslims should never be allowed in our governments and Congress. The Act of 1952 needs to be used and the Muslims need to be deported that want to practice Sharia laws.

    • ALL Americans who take an oath MUST be done on a Holy Bible!!! Don’t know WHAT those three female idiots took their oath on to “defend and protect the United Staes of America”. We are a country founded on Judaic- Christain values!!!!!! You want to take your vow on the Koran, move to some Muslim country!!!!!!!

  5. Sometimes I wish Trump was as evil as Democrats claim. It would be a pleasant surpise if he pulled a Sadam move and had all the Democrats rounded up and shot.

  6. This sounds like a good thing to me, call me a racist, a islamophobic or whatever you want to but to me keeping out people who do not have the same vision for America as we do is a good thing not a bad thing.
    Just look at this new muslim congresswomen omar who opposes our long standing relationship with Israel. We do not need anymore people who oppose our values and international views to come here and attempt to change who and what we are or what or positions in the international arena.

  7. That is GOOD NEWS! “BUT” the influx of ILLEGAL ALIENS into the US, so far this year is over 73,000 getting in without proper entrance papers. THE SOCIAL LIBERAL DEMO-RATS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS INVASION BECAUSE THEY ARE REFUSING TO BUILD THE WALL AND PUT UP SOLID CONTROL ENTRY POINTS. And also because of their greed and desires for total control of the citizens of this great country.The GREED of the demo-RATS is probably one of the main reasons that this country is having so many other problems.
