Do this for all countries. Then there is no problem with who is being singled out. Let the Trump administration’s new staff and directives then filter people reentering or coming to the United States for the first time. 2 posted on 01/29/2017 10:20:54 AM PST by Reno89519 (Drain the Swamp is not party specific.
