Letter: Trump's travel ban will protect America

I will not be intimidated by the loud chanting, sign waving left-wing individuals or the inaccurate megaphone ranting of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The safety of my nation is paramount. I am willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that end.

Radical Islamic terrorists are at war with the U.S. as well as Western Civilization. The seven counties that are included in the travel ban are not able to vet their own citizens — which also prevents our government from vetting these travelers. So then, the safe course is to temporarily halt travel from these countries.

President Donald Trump is acting to protect his family — i.e. America. Better to be proactive than reactive when it comes to terrorism.
