Travel ban — the threat by the numbers
As New Jersey fiercely debates the merits of President Trump's travel restrictions from 7 Muslim majority nations, I thought we should take a look at the numbers. How serious a threat do people pose who travel here from those countries? Not much.
The San Bernardino attacks were carried out by an American-born U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent. Pakistan is not one of the 7 nations. The shooter at the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando was an American-born citizen whose parents were from Afghanistan. Afghanistan is not one of the 7 nations. Watch this video for some surprising numbers and you'll see when it comes to any threat from these 7 particular nations, apparently the vetting that was already in place under the Obama administration was doing a pretty decent job.
