Donald Trump's Muslim ban is a dark moment in American history. Tell Trump to rescind this order immediately:
It's starting to seem like Trump thinks his Muslim ban (a term he -- not the media -- coined, by the way) is straight out of the hit film Minority Report. You know, the one where the government-hired clairvoyants are able to predict crimes people have yet to commit.
But one notable difference between the Minority Report universe and Trump's burgeoning dystopia is that neither Trump nor anyone in his administration possesses such powers. Not a single country listed in Trump's executive order has been tied to terrorist attacks in the United States. And while Trump has exploited the tragedy of 9/11 to support his bad policy, the countries the 9/11 hijackers came from -- countries like Saudi Arabia, where, in what the administration would surely say is a huge coincidence, Trump also once had business interests -- were left off the ban list entirely.
Not only is Trump's Muslim ban morally reprehensible, it doesn't even achieve its stated purpose of keeping us safe -- and it must be stopped.
There are some predictions we can make though:
