Trump Banned Refugees on Holocaust Remembrance Day. That Says Everything

Trumps order is a slap in the face to the millions of Americans who uphold our best traditions of welcoming the stranger seeking refuge

In 1939, the German oceanliner St Louis and its 937 passengers, almost all Jewish refugees, were turned away from the port of Miami and sent back to Europe. Of those passengers, 254 were murdered in the Holocaust. The US government turned away those refugees, so heartbreakingly close to safety and also restricted Jewish immigration and instituted new vetting procedures  because of rampant overblown fears that the Nazis might smuggle spies and saboteurs in among the Jewish refugees.

.

On Friday, which was Holocaust Remembrance Day, the White House put out a statement that failed to mention the 6 million Jews who were exterminated by the Nazis. Hours later, Donald Trump signed an executive order suspending all refugee resettlement for 120 days and indefinitely suspending the resettlement of refugees from Syria.

.

In addition to banning Syrian refugees, the president ordered a ban on all entries of the nationals of seven majority-Muslim countries: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen, for 90 days, and provided that the ban might be extended and that additional countries might be added to that list.

.

Trumps executive order on Friday is a major step toward carrying out his campaign threat to ban the admission of Muslims into the US. Tellingly, Fridays order authorizes the homeland security secretary to admit refugees on a case by case basis, notwithstanding the 120-day suspension, for people of a minority religion in their home countries.

.

Trump announced during his press conference that his order will help Christians to enter the US. In effect, Trump has barred Muslims from entering the US, while favoring the entry of Christians. One of the tenets upon which our country was founded is that religion is our own business and not the governments.

.

We have freedom of belief. We do not have religious litmus tests for participation in society. Trumps order is anathema to those founding principles. It violates the first amendments establishment clause, which prohibits the government from preferring or disfavoring any religion. Trumps anti-Muslim policy also violates the equal protection clause, the part of the 14th amendment that guarantees that everyone is entitled to equal protection under the law.

.

Trumps orders are immoral as well as unconstitutional. He is barring the entry of modern-day counterparts of the passengers of the St Louis children injured in Syrias terrible and brutal civil war, who are at imminent risk of being killed. And Trumps order is a slap in the face to the millions of Americans who uphold our best traditions of welcoming the stranger seeking refuge.

.

Trumps policy is also foolish. Former senior US military commanders, diplomats and homeland security officials, both Democrats and Republicans, have publicly stated that a block on refugees from Syria and other Muslim countries is contrary to US security interests because it feeds the Isis narrative that there is a war between Islam and the west and that Muslims are not welcome in the US.
