When did he have an immigration ban?
2011. The State Department under Obama's administration put a 6 month ban on immigration from Iraq.... just like Trump did and for the same reasons Trump did.
It was in response to finding 2 refugees Obama had let into the country from Iraq whilst he was asleep at the wheel.... were actually terrorists that killed Americans in Iraq. Just like ISIS said they would do.... they'd use terrorists masked as refugees to infiltrate the US.
The left want to deny it's the same as Trump having an immigrant ban... even though the reasons were exactly the same. National security. The numbers don't lie no matter how much Obama does.
2010 - 18,251 refugees from Iraq
2011 - 6,339 refugees from Iraq <---- The 6 month Obama ban... that apparantly never happened.
2012 - 16,369 refugees from Iraq
Also the 7 countries that Trump banned.... were the 7 countries the State Department created under Obama's administration... as "Countries of concern" for sponsoring terrorism. Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. The left media spin of course was that Trump made the list himself... and that he didn't include Saudi Arabia because he has business interests there... when it was actually Obama who made the list not Trump.
Wait, you're saying that putting a ban on a country where they actually found terrorists coming into the country, is the exact same thing as putting a ban on seven countries where they didn't have terrorists? Amazing logic, it's no wonder how Trump got elected. They also didn't completely ban refugees from Iraq, people were still allowed in. It wasn't even a ban, they just made it harder for people in that country to get in, it's only been called a ban recently to try and make Trump look not terrible (he still is).
