Not all muslims are terrorist, but a large number of terrorists are muslim; people are simply scared of terrorism, especially after 9/11 (Doc. 7). People being afraid leads to social tension, which leads to a split nation. A divided nation is an antipathetic thing; it leads to uprising and nothing productive can occur. Germany registered 785,000 refugees entering the country, and is afraid that terrorists are hiding among the masses of immigrants (Doc. 9). It is near impossible to screen everybody and know for sure who is and is not a terrorist.

Refugees should be deterred; they provoke social apprehension, they weaken the economy, and they surface concern regarding terrorism and crime. They make people uncomfortable and make people nervous. Refugees should be deterred because they take skilled jobs and receive all of the money that other people need. People as a whole seem to think all muslims are terrorist; people think muslims are the reason for the rise of crime rate increase. Refugees will find a place to live; they just will not live

    Right now, we’re afraid of what’s further away from us. We fear ISIS and terrorists, immigrants from Mexico or Syria, nuclear attacks, and communism. Maybe we fear something a little closer, though equally valid, such as economic collapse or volatile elected officials. Yet all together closer is our police force and the growing justification for distrust between citizens and criminal task force. Compared to other nations, they have killed far more citizens.…

    Trump’s aggressiveness on immigration is unconstitutional. His dictator-like qualities, such as punishing those who burn the American flag, can be compared to when Hitler punished those who questioned his authority and went against his beliefs. Forcefully removing undocumented immigrants would mean spending government money and raising our tax dollars. Many citizens will not want to pay taxes so the government could deport a family member from the country. All in all, the strong united nation we have built could soon come to an end because of America’s poor decision…
