Why isn't this an open-and-shut matter, especially here???
We don't have religious tests for anything regarding government, least of all citizenship.

What does PC have to do with it?
Apparently it is ok to advocate for the targeting of people based on their religion. Guess we forgot about the principles that founded this nation and what protects people from being persecuted.

His criteria is those who openly wish to replace the constitution with Sharia. That is incompatible with the existence of the United States. Sharia cannot exist with our Constitution and our nation cannot exist under Sharia. They enter the country with a militant and political objective to mount gorilla warfare against the government and civilians, no different than letting a foreign special forces unit into your nation to raise a gorilla army to wage war against you.

I think if you are communicating with an enemy of the state it should be easy to get a warrant to find out the depth of the communication and it should land a treason or sedition charge if found to be giving aid to a group who had declared the us an enemy and is carrying out acts of violence.

I think we should test EVERY person, of any descent.
We should have a test for citizenship.
For citizenship to actually mean anything, it would have to not be automatic and based on birth.
I think all residents should have basic rights, but citizenship should be open only to those who have shown themselves to be positive participants and contributors to civic welfare.
Make citizenship dependent on military service and service on jury duty. Then all citizens, and ONLY citizens, have the right to bear arms.

If groups like that start mass attacking every week or so then sure, test them too.
But they aren't. You have more of a chance of being shot and killed by a police officer (no matter what race you are) than getting killed by a terrorist. ISIS or otherwise.
