    "Who does Trump think he's helping with the travel ban? It sure isn't Americans.
    In seeking to fulfill his campaign promise to ‘ban Muslims’, he is putting
    his political interests ahead of concern for the safety of his fellow Americans."
    --Aryeh Neier

    "Even officials of the president’s own Department of Homeland Security
    have recognized that this list of countries cannot be justified on grounds
    that they have been sources of terrorist attacks in the United States. Yet
    President Trump is probably able to persuade his supporters that by
    keeping out their nationals, he is keeping his word.

    Unfortunately, in taking a step that is likely to increase antagonism to
    the United States, he is putting his political interests ahead of concern
    for the safety of his fellow Americans."

    "Whether or not the courts strike down this version of the travel ban, no
    good will come of it. Some nationalists who voted for Trump because of
    his pledge to exclude Muslims will be satisfied with it. But it will deepen
    antagonism to the United States by many of the world’s one-and-a-half billion Muslims."

    Donald Trump does not know what he is doing, so he issues travel bans so it looks like he is in charge.
