FYI - With all the back and forth, it appears 57% pro, 33% against, and 10% undecided. This is what America wanted it appears. Though the left is loud and have the entire MSM as their soapbox, they are in the minority.

Most Support Temporary Ban on Newcomers from Terrorist Havens

Most voters approve of President Trump’s temporary halt to refugees and visitors from several Middle Eastern and African countries until the government can do a better job of keeping out individuals who are terrorist threats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Similarly, 56% favor a temporary block on visas prohibiting residents of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States until the government approves its ability to screen for likely terrorists. Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose this temporary ban, and 11% are undecided.

This survey was taken late last week prior to the weekend protests against Trump’s executive orders imposing a four-month ban on all refugees and a temporary visa ban on visitors from these seven countries.

These findings have changed little from August when 59% of voters agreed with Trump’s call for a temporary ban on immigration into the United States from "the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world that have a history of exporting terrorism” until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists.

It is a privilege, not a right, for foreigners to come to the US. These people acting as if it is their right to come. What happens if all 1 billion Muslims come to the US. Should all of them be allowed in? Common sense man. Common sense.

All I am hearing is how this is a "muslim ban" and many are acting like it is a permanent muslim ban. It is merely a temporary hold on immigration from countries that harbor high levels of terrorism, they may be muslim, Christian, or athiest, it doesn't matter. No we may not have had attacks from these countries but they harbor terrorists and we want to prevent future attacks. The one thing I do disagree with is that this hold on immigration should NOT have affected those with visas or green cards. Those with families already here should have been allowed to stay.

Christians will get priority in the refugee process after the 90 days halt. Christians don't go around doing jihad. Christians are safe.

The current vetting process is insufficient. Those vetted by the current process will be revetted after 90 days. Those who have family in the US are questioned on a 1 on 1 basis.

Of course Americans support it, it's common sense. Unless your political agenda outweighs your desire for safety and security of the country, you would support it.

You're right. Just as with the election, the numbers in support are likely far higher than 57%, they just don't want to say it.

If you lock your door at night, you understand the need for borders. I'd suggest most Americans understand that.

The majority did not vote for Trump.

Call any poll you want, but most of the citizens of the US voted for someone who was not intent on all this xenophobic twaddle. Try again.
