This isn't even only about new immigrants/refugees. He banned people with green cards and valid visas. So college students on student visas who were visiting their families and spent life savings to attend college in the US can't come back in or if they are here, they can't visit their families for fear of not being allowed back in. People on business outside the US now cannot come back to their homes/families here. There was a article about a man who went to his fathers and now can't come home.

On the other hand, I appreciate the statistics provided on the current vetting process. These stats help point out that the immigration authorities are already spending a significant amount of time to process every refugee applicant and limit the numbers admitted. I am impressed by OPs ability to look for something good in this ban, however I do not feel that this order is intended to light a fire under the system. I feel that it is a short-sighted response to campaign promises. Unfortunately I realize that this is not something that can be argued with facts since we cannot truly know why Trump signed the ban

Dude wtf man... this is bigger than the actual people stuck at the airports. This is literally infringing on one of the core tenets of our free society, religious freedom. Don't be so ignorant. Of course the homeless people matter and are a serious issue but that's not what is at stake here

While that is a good point SA1, I just find it a bit odd that the govt it expected to take in ppl from other countries while we have more problems than we even know how to fix within our own borders. Let's completely ignore the ongoing crisis in Flint (slowly becoming a COMPLETE ghost town) and the unacceptable treatment (cold shouldering) of US vets.

And let me give you and MCK1 some facts. 3% of all refugee asylum applications to the US are accepted, usually after a 2-3 year vetting process. It's not a free ticket, and they already prioritize based off of immediate threat and skill of immigrant.

You can have religious freedom here... as long as you're already here. I don't see why people are so mad that we are closing our borders to a few small countries.

Hi! Has anyone boomeranged back into consulting? Especially MBB, either as an expert (healthcare) or generalist. My story: after UG, I started off at a pure strategy boutique.

I’m hoping to continue consulting but find something with more “growth” and ppl Mgmt experience. I’m making what an EM would make with bonus & profit share (cont’d)
