What Surprised Me In Salam Neighbor

What surprised me most while watching this film is seeing how hard it is for people in the camps to receive basic necessities (ex: food, water, safety).

Should We Welcome Refugees?

Of COURSE we should welcome Refugees to our community. I feel this way because the reason they leave their countries is to have safer / better lives because of the complications in their countries, and I believe they should have that opportunity.

Trump's Immigration Order

Trump's immigration order bans six countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) from traveling to the US. This ban is on hold at the moment but, if it is approved then people from all of those six countries won't be able to travel to the US for 90 days.

My Opinion On Trump's Ban

I don't agree with Trump's immigration order. One, by banning those six countries, he's targeting a certain group of people. Two, people should be able to migrate wherever they please, Wether it's for safety or travel. To back up my reasonings, the country's that are banned from entering the United States include, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen(predominantly Muslim countries). Also, the ban halted all green card holders from entering the country.
