OPINION | Views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect those held by Sarah Palin.

Donald Trump’s recent executive order on immigration has been characterized by the dishonest media as a “Muslim ban”.

That’s simply not the case.  In fact, that phrasing doesn’t even exist anywhere in the order.

Here is Sarah Palin’s take.

From Breitbart:

A blanket “immigration ban”? No, it is not. That is a fake news headline.

Trump is doing what the majority recognized was necessary to secure our borders. Voters asked for it, he promised it, and thus he was elected. Now he’s doing it.

This isn’t inhumane. It’s exercising common-sense compassion to keep human beings safe. It’s about fully vetting foreigners and merely following the laws the people–through our representative form of government within our republic–agreed upon

Trump’s executive action is a step in the right direction towards welcoming safe, loving, law-abiding, hardworking, patriotic people into our nation that was built on the backs of safe, loving, law-abiding, hardworking, patriotic people willing to assimilate into America’s exceptional melting pot.

Spot on.

The slightest amount of digging will tell you that not only have Democrats supported policies like this in the past but the actual details of the plan are far more reasonable than the headlines and pundits are letting on.
