Letter: Sources of danger

Trump has never paid much attention to facts, but his Muslim ban ignores a big one. Since 9/11, the vast majority of the terrorist attacks in this country have been perpetrated by American citizens. Many of them Muslims, yes, but citizens who’d been here a long time and radicalized by social media. How is a Muslim ban going to stop that?

Speaking of 9/11, nearly all of the conspirators were Saudis. The Saudis are conspicuously absent from Trump’s list of banned Muslims. Prominent on that list are the Yemenis, who’ve been bombed mercilessly recently by the Saudis. The oppressors are welcome, but the oppressed are not.

I can’t think of anything more un-American than a ban on people based on their religion. The Pilgrims are turning in their graves.

The words on the Statue of Liberty fade away.
