Infowars reporter Millie Weaver took to the streets of Austin, Texas to ask “liberally minded people” if they’re reconsidering President Donald Trump’s travel ban following Monday’s deadly bombing in Manchester.
As The Independent reports, bomber Salman Abedi was born to Libyan refugees who fled their home nation in fear of persecution from Muammar Gaddafi.
According to The Guardian, Abedi himself had arrived – just days prior to Monday’s attack – back in the UK from a trip to Libya and possibly Syria, where he may have met with extremists who helped him construct the “sophisticated” explosive device he used to kill 22 people.
If the UK had a travel ban like President Donald Trump’s proposed one, Abedi – with his record of having traveled to Libya and possibly Syria (both countries on Trump’s list) – would not have been allowed back into the country to commit his violent act.
In light of this information, surely all liberal Americans would reconsider their stance on President Trump’s travel ban.
“I think there’s always a vetting process from these foreign countries,” said one person. “But I don’t think that there’s a – I dunno, anything. We shouldn’t go overboard with these things.”
“I think there should be a screening process no matter who the people are across the board,” said another woman, apparently in reference to the great number of Jamaican terrorists rushing to enter the United States /s.
“If they could just filter out ISIS that would be amazing,” said another woman.
One of her friends remarked, “the ratio of people, like, in radical groups versus people who are refugees is a, like, hundred million to, like, thousand to one, ratio, so the lives of people that are being affected by a travel ban that are just seeking refugee is very, like, imbalanced.”
Another woman flat-out declared that the Manchester attack has not changed her mind about the need for a travel ban.
