This past weekend a Kurdish family from Erbil, Iraq who had a special immigrant visa to the United States was arrested and returned to Iraq because of the words and actions of President Trump. He made a bad deal for America and a bad deal for the world.
When Donald Trump was running for President he said that we should support the Kurdish people more. He is quoted in the video below at 3:51 speaking about the loyalty and good heart of the Kurdish people. He says he was not aware that Nashville, Tennessee has a large population of Kurdish people which shows he does not understand the American people and our American diversity. He says so many things that we should do on the one hand with the Kurdish people as our friends but on the other hand now he has turned away those same people. He does not even remember or understand what he has already said. It is almost funny to me how he does not understand what he himself is saying. He does not understand the world and he is quickly losing trust from people around the world. To many Iraqis he is becoming just the same as Saddam Hussein.
Who are the terrorists in America? They are not the people Mr. Trump thinks about as terrorists. They are not the refugees. If you agree then speak up and take action with your own state and local leaders. We the people can stand up to the lies and speak for truth if we use our democratic government and speak up.

(CNN)Twelve terrorists have conducted deadly jihadist terrorist attacks in the United States since 9/11, killing a total of 94 people. None of those twelve — who are all American citizens or legal residents — emigrated from or were born into a family that emigrated from a country that is the subject of the Trump administration’s travel ban.Indeed, seven of the twelve terrorists are native-born U.S. citizens, hailing from cities such as Memphis and Arlington, Virginia, according to research by New America. And none of the 9/11 attackers came from any of the seven countries listed by Trump’s executive order.
New America also found that three potentially serious attacks in the US since 9/11 that did not end up killing anyone were perpetrated by terrorists from countries that are covered by Trump’s ban, two from Somalia and one from Iran.
Of the almost 400 individuals accused of jihadist terrorism crimes since 9/11 in the United States — ranging from crimes such as murder to less serious crimes such as sending small sums of money to a terrorist organization — almost half are native-born American citizens, and more than 80 percent are US citizens or legal permanent residents.
