WASHINGTON – As WND reported more than a week ago, the federal judge from Seattle who issued a halt to President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring entry to the U.S. by travelers from seven nations because of concerns over potential terror threats erred badly when he said there had been no arrest of foreign nationals from those countries since 9/11.
A new report shows that at least 72 such individuals have indeed been convicted of terrorism-related offenses.
Later, a review by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld the order by federal Judge James Robart saying there was “no evidence” any of those nations had produced a terror threat to the U.S.
The nations designated by Trump’s order are Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia – now known as the “Trump 7.” Each, indeed, has produced at least one individual convicted of terror-related charges, according to a report by a Senate committee in 2016, no longer publicly available but obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies.
In a courtroom exchange that took place Friday, Feb. 3, with Department of Justice lawyer Michelle Bennett, federal Judge James L. Robart, asked, “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals from those seven countries since 9/11”? “I don’t know the specific details of attacks or planned attacks,” said Bennett, who is from the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.
“The answer to that is none, as best I can tell,” said the judge. (Check Chart!)
A preliminary report published by WND a day later showed Robart was clearly wrong – travelers and immigrants from the seven countries have indeed been involved in the murders of Americans and other heinous crimes.

Nine Members of Trump’s Cabinet Identify as devout Christians. President-elect Donald Trump has now appointed nine members to the White House, each of whom profess publicly to be Christians. Is this a huge answer to prayer?
“For many years, we have prayed that God would raise up men and women of God to positions of leadership and influence in our country.
However, since the end of the George W. Bush administration, there have been previous few answers to that prayer,” writes author and pastor David Murray. “Who would have thought that Donald Trump might be the answer to that prayer?”
At the heart of these appointments is Vice-President Mike Pence who has previously said, “My Christian faith is at the heart of who I am” and “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”
Then there is Chief of Staff Reince Preibus, who has previously tweeted “Christ’s sacrificial work provides an example for us all, and we join with the Psalmist in saying ‘You make known to me the path of life.’”
Then we’ve got Attorney General Jeff Sessions (who is Sunday school teacher at his family’s church) and Housing and Urban Development’s Dr. Ben Carson, who believes that God spoke clearly to him that Trump would be president.
Further to this, there is Education’s Betsy DeVos, a Christian committed to bringing God’s ‘Kingdom’ through schooling.
Then we have newly-announced Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, EPA’s Scott Pruitt, CIA’s Mike Pompeo (whose family attends Eastminster Presbyterian Church), and Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley. They are all Christians!
The number of believers in the upper echelons of the Trump administration is quite incredible.
Please share this to encourage others.
God had rules, and fortifications, to guard and protect a moral society from those unfit to enter.
It also reminds us of :
The Wall of Jerico was erected to keep out dangerous elements.
The American Western forts employed walls for protection.
The Native Americans set up tepees in a circle to protect against attack.
The American pioneers circled their wagons.
The Chinese built a famous wall to protect against dangerous outsiders.
The Israeli had to finally build their wall to help prevent terrorists from entering.
The Walls and protection within gated communities to protect against danger
The Americans & South Korean’s built a Wall (fence barrier) to keep out North Korea
Nation’s need walls barriers on their borders to keep out not just the bad,
but those who choose not to obey the immigration laws
A Nation has a right to know who enters their country
Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, speaks at the organization’s 2016 conference about the lies that whites tell each other about race. He discusses the police cover-ups in Cologne, Germany, and across Britain, where police hid the truth about immigrant sex assaults. He describes how scientists openly express their willingness to suppress the truth about race differences in intelligence and points out that “the whole Black Lives Matter movement is a pack of lies.” This does not, however, stop white academics from writing about how police “hunt down and target blacks” as part of a “race war.”
Mr. Taylor reminds the audience of great battles their ancestors fought for their survival: Marathon, Poitiers, Vienna, the siege of Malta, Blood River. “You have the blood of heroes in your veins,” he says. “You know your duty. And I know you will do it.”
A little over a week ago, the world was introduced to Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Ten days later, after multiple meetings with Senators, Republican and Democrat alike, the support for Judge Gorsuch is incredible.
Here are just some of the positive things Senators had to say after meeting with Judge Gorsuch:
* “I would encourage all of my fellow Senators to meet with him, give him a fair shake. He deserves that.” –Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT)
* “I know he has a stellar record from the standpoint of his pedigree, how he came up through his education process, everything about him.” –Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)
“ *I will push for a hearing and I will push for a vote.” –Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE)
In all, eight Democrat senators have stated publicly that Judge Gorsuch deserves a hearing and a vote. Judge Gorsuch is bringing Senators together on both sides of the aisle.
There is no better choice to carry on Justice Antonin Scalia’s incredible legacy of protecting our freedoms.
In the coming weeks, as Judge Gorsuch meets with more Senators and continues the nomination process, he will need our support.
