Carter Sanctions on Iranian Immigrants; Same As Trumps

It was April 7, 1980 when then Democrat President Jimmy Carter determined that the safety of the United States of America and its own citizens were more important than an agenda. There were four steps in the sanctions to cut ties with the Iranians at that time. The forth step is the most important and has similarities to current events.

From an ABC News report: ” a virtual shutting off of all Iranian immigration into this country”. See the video from ABC News with the quote occurring at 1:34. President Jimmy Carter stopped any Iranians from immigrating to this country during the time we cut ties with Iran.

2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump has said from his website “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on”. Trump also stated “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life”.

What does it take to keep us safe? Donald Trump got it the same way President Jimmy Carter did way back in 1979. Why does President Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton not get that the President of the United States has a responsibility to ensure the safety of the American people. President Obama and Hillary Clinton only focus on pushing their agendas than doing the right thing.

An article from the Washington Post on November 20, 2015 states that Americans fear a terrorist attack within the U.S. is likely to occur. This has risen sharply and is the wake of the Paris terror attacks. An article from the Washington Times on September 10, 2014 states “Americans feel less safe now than any time since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks”. During his time as President, Barrack Obama has done nothing to ensure the people of the United States they are safe. Worry and concern has gone up during his terms as President. There have been over 100 million guns purchased since President Obama has taken office according to an article by Absolute proof that people do not believe they are protected.

Donald Trump has been bashed by the liberal agenda for his stance to protect the people of the United States of America. They were fine when President Jimmy Carter took a stance. President Obama should be the one taking a stance during this uncertain time but the people know he doesn’t.
