Trump calls for a ‘total and complete’ shutdown of Muslim immigration

Donald Trump sent out a release to reporters Monday calling for a ‘total and complete’ shutdown of Muslim immigration into the United States.

The Republican frontrunner said that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States in the wake of last week’s deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino where 14 people were killed by two suspected ISIS sympathizers.

‘I think that we should definitely disallow any Muslims from coming in. Any of them. The reason is simple: we can’t identify what their attitude is,’ said Trump.

Trump was condemned almost immediately by both Democrats and Republicans for even suggesting this idea, with everyone from Dick Cheney to Huma Abeden quick to publicly attack Trump.

‘I’m a proud Muslim — but you don’t have to share my faith to share my disgust;’ wrote Abeden in an email sent by Hillary for America.

‘Trump wants to literally write racism into our law books. His Islamophobia doesn’t reflect our nation’s values – it goes far enough to damage our country’s reputation and could even threaten our national security.’

Shockingly, Cheney’s statement on the matter almost exactly echoed that of Abeden as he said; ‘I think this whole notion that we can just say no more Muslims, and just ban a whole religion goes against everything we stand for and believe in.

‘Religious freedom has been a very important part of our history and where we came from. … It’s a mistaken notion.’
