In addition to his ban on citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, Trump has also tightened visa requirements for Afghans and Pakistanis. Although obtaining US visa by Afghan people has been not very easy for so long, imposing new restrictions on them largely affect people who have risked their lives to support the United States through serving American agencies in Afghanistan.
Whatever actions and steps the new US president is taking under the pretext of making America more secure indeed instigate anti-American hatred and sentiments. The ban on Muslims will actually face the United States with new headaches other than secure it.
More surprisingly, American troops and contractors are travelling to Muslim countries like Afghanistan without a visa, and they are doing whatever they wish to do there, but those fleeing the conflicts fueled by Americans don’t reserve the right to enter the US. If Trump really wants to solve the refugee problem and secure his country, he should put an end to American interference in other countries. That is the only approach that can tackle the immigration problem not only in the United States, but also in the entire world. The time has come for the America to review its policy of unilaterally ruling and holing sway over the world, and let nations shape their future themselves. That way they won’t be forced to leave their countries, and immigrate to America.
