The Trump White House would really like for all of us immigrants to go home. His chief advisor thinks we have too many Asians as CEO’s in Silicon Valley.

For those who are US citizens, the obvious approach is to create an impossible set of choices. Suppose you have an elderly parent in Yemen. And now the US government won’t let you bring her into the USA. As a family person you have two choices, abandon her in Yemen or leave.
If you leave, you take your family and your community with you.
For those who are not US citizens, you don’t let them come in as students. That ensures that we don’t have those pesky students who stick around and create value for all of America, thus again reducing the number of annoying (Muslim) people – also called Vermin …
For those who are Green Card holders, you make it clear that any point time their Green Card status can be revoked. But wait you say, it’s only a temporary travel ban. Except a temporary travel ban that lasts 6+ months can result in you losing your Green Card. And if you have a mortgage, and can’t work for six months, then you can’t pay the mortgage so again you are forced to abandon your community and family or never travel. And then you see the problem about your family and you start to make alternative plans about your plans in this country.
The goal of the executive order is to force people to choose between family and America. To terrorize them into abandoning America.
In the Balkans, we just send killers to rape women and massacre children. I suppose it’s says something about the USA that we dress our ethnic cleansing in fine legalese about protecting America.
