Visa Pause

President Trump’s visa pause: What a bunch of stupid histrionics. How can a 90-day pause for security review of the visa and asylum seekers from 7 countries cause so much “indignation”. I’ve even read an article that this 90-day pause could result in doctor shortage – by thousands.

The U.S. could face a shortfall of thousands of doctors, experts warn, because Pres. Donald Trump issued an executive order last week that banned citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. Scientific American

Pardon my incredulity, but puuuleeeaseeee. Drama much? A 90-day pause causes the end of life as we know it in the US apparently. They say these things, but really, if a visa is supposed to take 2 – 3 years of “vetting” what’s another 90 days for a few months during the security procedure review? It beggars credulity.

I’m eagerly awaiting the 9th Circuit Court ruling today, though I have no hope the most liberal court in the US will find for the government, not because the case lacks merit, quite the contrary, it’s slam dunk, but this is all about politics and money and in this day and reality those trump the Constitution every time it seems.
