Syrian Refugees Banned

I'm going to address Syrian Refugees and their ability to enter the United States in this post.   One of The Donald's promises reads:

8. Bar Syrian refugees from entering the country and kick out any who are already living here.

For our purposes, I'm going to separate this promise into two different items. We'll call them 8a - Bar Syrian refugees from entering the country and 8b - Kick out any who are already living here. They really are two entirely different things, after all.

Today we'll be focusing on 8a, only.

Here is a video of a portion of one of Donald's campaign speeches where he makes the promise:



The statement is made around the 2 minute mark, if you don't want to watch the whole thing. (but it isn't long)

Now, then.  Was this promise kept?

Why, yes.  If you've been paying any attention to the news at all for the past several days, you know that he has suspended the refugee program for 120 days.  Click here for an article about it.

Another campaign promise kept.  Seems like Donald is on a roll recently...
