Trump and Pawlowski on Refugees
Trump is giving the press and the garden variety liberals a fit, suggesting that foreign Muslims be denied visas from entering the country. Although, I also find a religious barometer offensive, I'm equally disturbed over the common notion that such a suggestion will only drive Muslims to extremism. If prejudice normally created such a result, I would presume that all blacks and Jews would be very militant by now. Trump is only articulating a common fear.
Syrians refugees have a friend in Pennsylvania, Allentown mayor Ed Pawlowski. Yesterday, he attended another news conference, pleading for Congress not to complicate the path to Allentown for the refugees. While Trump plays on the fear, Pawlowski wants to be associated with compassion. While Donald hopes to be elected, Ed hopes to be exonerated.
