This week's overseas terror attacks have further convinced President-elect Donald Trump that his immigration plans are now more necessary than ever. He told the press as much at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on Wednesday.
“ You've known my plans all along and I’ve been proven to be right, 100-percent correct,” he told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. “What’s happening is disgraceful.”
Last year, Trump said he wants to put a ban on Muslim immigration - "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."
America only has to look toward Germany's mistakes to know how dangerous an open door policy can be. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has allowed hundreds of thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Africa into her country, a migrant policy which critics say led directly to terror attacks this past year. That justified assumption was given more weight this week when authorities identified the terrorist in the Berlin attack as a Tunisian refugee.
On Monday, before it had been confirmed, Trump tweeted that the Berlin attack was the work of Islamic extremists. The next day, ISIS took responsibility.
