The answer is pretty simple:
One of these causes is to debate the use of existing laws to prevent a hate preacher from entering our country, just as we have applied it to other hate preachers.
The other is a blanket call to abandon all Human rights of those seeking protection from persecution in our nation, something we have committed to for decades.
Trump is a preacher of hate who we should prevent from entering.
Refugees are innocent people in need of safety and we have a moral and ethical duty to provide that, those claiming that this should not be done are asking for us to abandon basic Human rights.
Obviously, we are not as a country going to bow down to right wing crazies who want to abandon Human rights all based on their own paranoia, delusions, xenophobia and hate.
Unfortunately, the hate speech seems to be coming from you.
A suspension of importing refugees until the vetting process is properly worked out is a proper course of action . Even Canada isn't accepting ANY single males as refugees. Where's you hate rhetoric on that. It is called prudence.
I have no idea what your agenda is and couldn't care less. Pushing the moral buttons, selectively, is pure garbage.
P.S. How many refugees has you living in YOUR home??? I thought not.

Are we sure the 500,000 actually live in the UK? I somehow doubt that 50 people in UK give a toss about Trump's comments.
I would love to see how many were Americans looking to spike Trump's candidature and stuck their email address down.
The Government has a policy of not routinely commenting on individual immigration or exclusion cases.
For good reasons the Government does not routinely comment on individual immigration and exclusion decisions.
The Home Secretary may exclude a non-European Economic Area national from the UK if she considers their presence in the UK to be non-conducive to the public good.
The Home Secretary has said that coming to the UK is a privilege and not a right and she will continue to use the powers available to prevent from entering the UK those who seek to harm our society and who do not share our basic values.
Exclusion powers are very serious and are not used lightly. The Home Secretary will use these powers when justified and based on all available evidence.
The Prime Minister has made clear that he completely disagrees with Donald Trump’s remarks. The Home Secretary has said that Donald Trump’s remarks in relation to Muslims are divisive, unhelpful and wrong.
The Government recognises the strength of feeling against the remarks and will continue to speak out against comments which have the potential to divide our communities, regardless of who makes them. We reject any attempts to create division and marginalisation amongst those we endeavour to protect.

WHO FIDDLED THE PETITION!
Thats what we should all be concentrating on.
The petitions should work like this:
You sign, and you enter a nickname, much like we do on forums.
Everyone should then have the ability to view ALL the names on the petition.
That way people can see whether their name has been removed.
I didn't sign either Petition but it does raise the question why is one agenda being pushed constantly by all main news channels and the other voice of the British public is being all but silenced. Incidentally the Petition asking for our borders to be closed hasn't received a debate date!
