isin case by case determinations. that was from dhs second john yesterday. go to steve in eugene, oregon, an independent. morning. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. i think that obviously this is going to make the country less safe. a negativeat creates opinion of our country i think safe. it less i think the world is pretty much don't like they what is happening since trump is in office. country is speaking out loud in the streets. protest is there. voice, i think we've seen overwhelming peaceful this entire across the border in the country. that is. form of empowerment we're allowed to have in this country. support we should protesting. i want to talk to older people
we're in, remind them living in a different world. you know, the world is changing, unified oming rapidly through hyper connectivity the internet, they are going to stop the world from changing. i think that we're seeing, you know, kind of a step back in our of moves the lot trump administration is making lot of ink there is a blind support being given to them. we're preoccupied with fear in our country, fear, comfort and more we go toward that direction, the more walls will be built. this is another wall, he wants build a wall, people want to this a wall on the border, is another wall being put up i ween us and the world and don't think it is fair to compare to anything obama has done. handled his is being arrogantly should not be
way obama the gracefully handled the things he office. i'm just feeling really sad and not going in re love-based direction in the fear-based, we're seeing new administration, it is very sad. debra, virginia, republican. go ahead. caller: how are you? okay. say i agree with the man that called before paula paula.th i would also like to say to who don't agree with president trump and for those in country who don't agree with it, president trump and for who call themselves americans who don't agree with president trump. put in t trump was office by god himself and his trump, not sident trump or "he," president trump
the united dent of states of america and will be says resident until god differently. that is all i have to say. e-mail when is they come in, we've had e-mails on the topic. one from stan. allow refugees to come from country when is they do not have governments you can do the vetting. who is in charge in somalia, etc., one other e-mail from lou, a democrat. human beings get angry, they get dangerous. targets ofill become retaliation, i expect more attack necessary our country and europe. well thought out policy. question for the viewers, the executive order, the travel bans they make the united states more or less safe? want it hear your thoughts for today.t of the program anita in mechanicsville, virginia. democrat. morning. caller: yes, i definitely think
president has made safe, in ry much less i'm appalled by his total disrespect of the congress and senate in avoiding seeking their council on these discriminatory muslims.against as far as comments on veterans, 100 ather would have been this year, world war ii veteran, fought for four years, he was at liberation of dactile, he would be appalled we have a such racist president after all the years after what he fought for. mean, with the republicans annfrank? that is all vito say. a tweet on our twitter stream. wj if you want to follow along. do you think we trust him? show his tax returns. in el dorado, oklahoma,

terrorism. country me into this with ill will, you know, we let these people in here. it is not their right, not a uman right, it is a privilege to get to come here. ost: linda on the thought on other countrys and what they have to say about it. the washington times today with immigration ban on refugees inspires wide anger and world.pplause across the british prime minister theresa may does not agree with donald trump's order and will challenge the u.s. government if it has adverse effect on british nationals, according to a spokesman. the comment came after mrs. may aid saturday that the decision was a matter solely for the united states. her main political rival, labor leader corbyn called for mr. trump to be ban friday isiting britain until the temporary travel restrictions are rescinded. independent, good morning. caller: good morning.
over 20-year military retired veteran combat veteran from vietnam. even while wait og my turn on he phone line, all it does is anger me more because i think merica really, really needs to wake up. the amount of time in the course eyeballs are the on a computer or on a cell instead of paying attention to what is going on world. you, this is a sad mr. trump is not a racist. mr. trump is doing what he was do, protect going to all our country against all and domestic.gn that is an oath of office in the military when we enlist. don't know, y'all need to wake up. i will tell you point blank, not people coming here are bad people, but you have some. these people u, will come into this country, some of them, and kill you.
this country needs to wake up, all this is political and it is sad. whatmongering, this is not this is about. same thing with -- i watch celebrities in hollywood, get you know what, take a the u.s.o. tour and go around the troops and maybe you will understand more instead of complaining and -- it is just sad, that is all i got say. america needs to wake up. host: before you go, do you to be he entry ban needs expanded to other country? the "wall street journal" noting that other countries have had higher numbers of individuals who have attacks on rrorist the u.s. arrested for plotting attacks in the u.s. that were included in the seven country travel restriction, ncluding saudi arabia and pakistan. do you think it should be
expanded? yeah, i do. again, take a look at the have happened in germany. take a look at problems in france. mean, france, for example, has a situation now to where they've community where they can't even police it up. and look at what has happened, the terrorist problems that have happened within the country. i do believe that. host: all right. gabriel, a democrat. good morning. caller: good morning, sir, how you doing? well.doing caller: i am speaking here like immigrant, fortunately not from country the president is putting a ban on. i want to go back to basics. 240 something years ago when the nation was formed. country were as ignorant and arrogant as the president is today. the president would not be sitting on the chair he is
itting at today because there was a ban placed on everybody, his ancestors would not have come to this country. second of all, his wife would not be in this country if that blanket.hat take this again back to basics. are sure there are some people that will come to the country to do harm to us. making it global, so blanket, does not solve the problem problem. it will piss nk more people off more than abroad. put yourself in the family of someone who is running away from a problem in those countrys and is here hoping they will come in. do you think it makes you happy held w a member of your 18 age at airport 17 or hours. some people coming to the country, 40 years from today, 50 years from today, their children just ted states citizens like his family came from ireland would be running for
president of this country someday. should remember the position he is standing today right now so ecause this country was grateful to me as african, this country doing due diligence, paying my taxes and i am today, that is why he's sitting in there today. ay what you may, he is doing something that is wrong and this country might pay the price for it. calls ime for a few more in today's program. joseph in crystal lake, illinois sef, good morning. caller: hi, thanks for taking my call. the lly got to get down to crux of this situation. it is the vetting. question, hello. host: go ahead. it is the vetting. caller: do they ask these people
religion?r as far as i know it is against people aboutto ask their religion. hese people are fanatics about religion. they say, do you believe in law, arms if you steal something or hands or fingers or you know. people are these ompletely different than we are. you know, i'm a veteran. been to several countries, i've lived several different continents and never been in a country, but from what i've seen, let me tell you a .ory about 50 years ago, i first my corporation sent me on a special project. n this project, there was
egyptian engineer and i thought egyptian ange that an engineer would be here instead was egypt because the guy really intelligent and he had a mountain of knowledge and he far in egypt.e so i asked him, i said, why did america? to he said, one day my father and i and some guy rket came out with one of those moon up ds and started chopping that allah e said told him to do it. they are crazy people over there. ago.was 50 years they are still doing it. so that is my comment. would you want that egyptian man you met to be in the united states, the one of knowledge, in the one you met? caller: yeah, he's a nice guy. he came here because he was afraid of where he was living
