Thank You President Trump for Reaffirming the Necessity of Enhanced Vetting

Yesterday, Donald Trump reasserted his constitutional and statutorily conferred authority to bar entry to this country to certain individuals. In the process of executing a new Executive Order for this purpose, he rescinded a previous, much criticized and legally challenged one. But Mr. Trump has reaffirmed the basic principle that he can - and must - act to prevent more actual or potential terrorists from coming here.
Still think that's unnecessary? The FBI revealed yesterday that it is investigating three hundred refugees suspected of ties to terrorism.
Now, those suspicions may not be verified. But are there more with such ties among the many thousands of others who have come here from nations that are hotbeds of jihadism - including some that are wholly insecure failed states?
President Trump deserves our thanks for trying to protect us against such clear and probably present dangers.
The latest from Frank Gaffney, Jr. Frank is the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. Mr. Gaffney formerly acted as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy during the Reagan Administration, following four years of service as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Forces and Arms Control Policy.
