WRITTEN FROM NORTH AFRICA:


We are getting much mal-information that will soon cause discomforting situations for Americans abroad. I'm hoping that folks read this to calm things down. Trump did not implement a ban on Muslim immigration. Instead, he signed an executive order aimed directly at limiting immigration from jihadist conflict zones.


The order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process, then caps refugee admissions at 50,000 per year (same annual amount as the Obama administration, but twice as much as the Bush administration).

The order imposes a temporary, 90-day ban on people entering the U.S. from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. These are countries either torn apart by jihadist violence or under the control of hostile, jihadist governments.


MERCY PARTNERS is confronting the refugee crisis at the start-among IDP's (Internally Displaced Persons), so they don't become refugees. You could say we are "Changing hearts in hostile countries." I have not met a displaced person who does not desire to return to where they were born. It is only that their land is war-torn or collapsed.


We request that our Christian brothers and sisters be diligent in showing dignity to all people and understand that our world's dynamics have changed. — It is the immigrants who reach distant shores in huddled masses who yearn to breathe free, though it may be different for others, those who desire to impose their rule and law, culture, and country. I believe that the new immigration policy is designed to separate the huddled from those who would harm.
