  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:00.140 --> 00:00:05.000
  • [ANNOUNCER] LIVE FROM WASHINGTON D.C. JAY SEKULOW
  • 00:00:05.010 --> 00:00:09.050
  • LIVE. PHONE LINES ARE OPEN FOR YOUR QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:00:09.060 --> 00:00:13.200
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:28.150
  • AND NOW, CHIEF COUNSEL FOR THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW
  • 00:00:28.160 --> 00:00:31.020
  • AND JUSTICE, JAY SEKULOW! JAY SEKULOW: WELL, TO SAY THAT IT
  • 00:00:31.030 --> 00:00:34.150
  • WAS A BUSY WEEKEND IS A BIT OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT. AS YOU CAN
  • 00:00:34.160 --> 00:00:36.240
  • IMAGINE, THE EXECUTIVE ACTION ON THE ISSUE OF REFUGEES, THAT WAS
  • 00:00:36.250 --> 00:00:41.120
  • FOLLOWED UP BY A SERIES OF PROTESTS; MOSTLY BY PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:44.170
  • DIDN'T BOTHER TO READ THE EXECUTIVE ACTION, THE EXECUTIVE
  • 00:00:44.180 --> 00:00:47.140
  • ORDER. LET ME SAY THIS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE BROADCAST HERE,
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:50.020
  • WHAT THE PRESIDENT DID BY PUTTING A 90 DAY BAN, IF YOU
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:54.100
  • WILL, MORATORIUM, PAUSE ON PARTICULAR COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN,
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:58.230
  • THE 7 THAT HAVE BEEN LISTED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, AND
  • 00:00:58.240 --> 00:01:01.200
  • THEN THE 120 DAY, AGAIN, PAUSE ON REFUGEE STATUS UNTIL WE
  • 00:01:01.210 --> 00:01:07.240
  • FIGURE OUT OUR SYSTEM MADE PERFECT SENSE. AS FAR AS
  • 00:01:07.250 --> 00:01:11.100
  • CONSTITUTIONALITY GOES, LET ME BE VERY CLEAR ON THIS, THE
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:14.130
  • PRESIDENT HAS THE AUTHORITY BOTH CONSTITUTIONALLY AND
  • 00:01:14.140 --> 00:01:17.150
  • STATUTORILY. AND IN THE ACTUAL EXECUTIVE ORDER ON THE REFUGEE
  • 00:01:17.160 --> 00:01:22.110
  • SITUATION, THE WHITE HOUSE COUNCIL, OR WHOEVER DRAFTED THIS
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:26.140
  • PARTICULAR DOCUMENT UP, POINTED TO THAT STATUTORY AUTHORITY.
  • 00:01:26.150 --> 00:01:30.210
  • THAT'S MARKEDLY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA DID WHEN HE
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:34.080
  • CHANGED THE IMMIGRATION LAW. THIS IS NOT CHANGING LAW, THIS
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:37.150
  • IS ENFORCING EXISTING LAW AND NOTIFYING THE VARIOUS AGENCIES.
  • 00:01:37.160 --> 00:01:42.170
  • NOW THERE WAS SOME CONCERN OVER VISAS. THAT HAS NOW BEEN
  • 00:01:42.180 --> 00:01:45.110
  • MODIFIED. BUT JORDAN, AGAIN, YOU'VE BEEN ON THE AIR ON THIS,
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:47.290
  • I'VE BEEN ON THE AIR ON THIS, THIS HAS GOTTEN, THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:50.160
  • OF PROTESTS, OR WILL BE PROTESTS, THE FACT IS THIS WAS
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:53.210
  • PERFECTLY LEGAL. JORDAN SEKULOW: SURE. THAT'S RIGHT. WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:56.150
  • CHIEF OF STAFF, REINCE PRIEBUS, CLEARED UP, SOMETHING THEY
  • 00:01:56.160 --> 00:01:59.060
  • BROUGHT UP ON FOX NEWS OVER THE WEEKEND, WHICH WAS PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:02.100
  • SHOWED UP IN THE U.S. WERE ON FLIGHTS WHEN THIS HAPPENED WITH
  • 00:02:02.110 --> 00:02:04.200
  • EXISTING VISAS OR GREEN CARDS, ALL THOSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
  • 00:02:04.210 --> 00:02:08.170
  • CLEARED THROUGH THE SYSTEM NOW. AND NOW EVERYONE IS ON NOTICE AT
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:11.110
  • THE TSA AND BEFORE THEY BOARD FLIGHTS, IF YOU ARE FROM, AGAIN,
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:15.280
  • ONE OF THOSE 7 NATIONS, OR WERE GOING THROUGH THE REFUGEE
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:19.240
  • PROCESS. IF YOU WERE GOING THROUGH THE REFUGEE PROCESS, BY
  • 00:02:19.250 --> 00:02:23.100
  • THE WAY, THIS IS A 120 DAY MORATORIUM, A PAUSE, BUT IT
  • 00:02:23.110 --> 00:02:28.080
  • MAKES, CLEARLY IN THE EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT IF YOU'RE ALREADY IN
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:31.050
  • THE SYSTEM, AFTER THAT 120 DAYS YOU'LL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE ON.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:35.020
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, UNDER REFUGEE LAW, ADDING 120
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:37.190
  • DAYS IS A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. IT TAKES YEARS TO GET
  • 00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:40.250
  • THROUGH THAT REFUGEE SYSTEM, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE GOING FROM
  • 00:02:40.260 --> 00:02:43.070
  • ALL THE WAY IN THE MIDDLE EAST TO THE UNITED STATES. YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:46.120
  • TO GO THROUGH A LOT OF PROOF OF WHY YOU NEED TO BE HERE. -LET
  • 00:02:46.130 --> 00:02:49.020
  • ME SAY THIS ALSO, BY THE WAY, THERE WERE 325.000 PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:52.280
  • CAME THROUGH THE UNITED STATES, 109 WERE DETAINED. I MEAN, IT'S
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:56.150
  • A VERY SMALL NUMBER. THOSE HAVE ALL BEEN RELEASED. BUT I ALSO
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:59.180
  • WANT TO SAY THIS, THE CONSTITUTION IS NOT A SUICIDE
  • 00:02:59.190 --> 00:03:02.160
  • PACT. PRESIDENT'S HAVE THE AUTHORITY, AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:05.190
  • PRESIDENT OBAMA STOPPED IRAQI REFUGEE STATUS AND REFUGEE FLOW.
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:10.070
  • PRESIDENT CARTER STOPPED IRANIAN FLOW AFTER THE IRANIAN HOSTAGE
  • 00:03:10.080 --> 00:03:15.130
  • CRISIS. SO THIS IS NOT UNPRECEDENTED. THIS IS NOT
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:18.110
  • UNHEARD OF. THIS IS THE LAW. COULD IT HAVE BEEN ROLLED OUT
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:22.140
  • DIFFERENTLY? PERHAPS. WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE AHEAD INCLUDING YOUR
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:25.220
  • PHONE CALLS AND COMMENTS WHEN WE COME BACK.
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:28.110
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:32.270
  • JAY SEKULOW: ALRIGHT, SO IF YOU'RE JUST JOINING US, OF
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:35.030
  • COURSE, AN EXECUTIVE ACTION WAS SIGNED ON THE REFUGEE STATUS.
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:38.000
  • IT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT WE OUTLINED. I DID A SPECIAL
  • 00:03:38.010 --> 00:03:39.290
  • BROADCAST ON FRIDAY WHEN IT CAME OUT. IT PUTS A PAUSE IN PLAY
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:43.170
  • FROM 7 PARTICULAR COUNTRIES OF CONCERN. YOU HAVE A 90 DAY
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:48.270
  • PROHIBITION FOR EITHER IMMIGRANTS OR NON-IMMIGRANTS. ON
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:52.240
  • THE REFUGEE FRONT, THEY'RE GOING TO JUST PAUSE THE REFUGEE
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:55.020
  • SITUATION FOR 120 DAYS. AND THIS IS ALL TO GET THE VETTING
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:58.110
  • STRAIGHT, TO GET THESE COUNTRIES COOPERATIVE WHEN YOU CAN, AND
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:04:02.000
  • ALSO AT LEAST AN INDEFINITE PAUSE ON SYRIAN REFUGEE STATUS
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:08.030
  • RIGHT NOW, AGAIN, BECAUSE OF THE SITUATIONS THERE. THE PROBLEM
  • 00:04:08.040 --> 00:04:10.140
  • WITH SYRIA, JORDAN, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE, IS YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:12.280
  • ISIS CONTROLLING SOME TOWNS THAT ACTUALLY CONTROL THE VISAS AND
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:16.270
  • THEY CONTROL IMMIGRATION PAPERS AND PASSPORTS. JORDAN SEKULOW:
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:19.280
  • YES, IN SYRIA, THE ISLAMIC STATE WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE CITIES AND
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:25.010
  • MAJOR AREAS IN SUCH GOOD CONDITION THAT THERE WERE
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:29.160
  • PASSPORT OFFICES THERE WITH CURRENT PASSPORT MACHINES, BLANK
  • 00:04:29.170 --> 00:04:32.110
  • PASSPORTS, AND THEY WERE ABLE TO ISSUE AS MANY VALID PASSPORTS. I
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:36.260
  • MEAN, THEY WERE BAD PASSPORTS IN THE SENSE THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:04:36.270 --> 00:04:39.290
  • ILLEGALLY MADE, BUT THEY APPEARED VALID. THEY WERE NOT
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:43.010
  • COUNTERFEIT. -YES, SO THEY'RE NOT FALSE. -THEY'RE ILLEGAL.
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:48.090
  • -THEY'RE FRAUDULENT. AND THERE'S A DIFFERENCE THERE. THEY
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:51.000
  • LOOK LIKE A PASSPORT. THEY HAVE A PASSPORT NUMBER, BUT THEY WERE
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:52.290
  • NOT PROPERLY AUTHORIZED BECAUSE ISIS WAS THE AUTHORIZING. WE DO
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:56.050
  • HAVE AN INTERESTING QUESTION THAT CAME IN FROM SHERRY ON
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:58.060
  • FACEBOOK I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE. AND THAT IS BECAUSE THERE ARE 7
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:05:00.270
  • COUNTRIES, DO WE HAVE A LIST OF THE 7 YET? OKAY, JORDAN GIVE THE
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:03.070
  • LIST OF THE 7 COUNTRIES AND THEN, LOGAN, LET'S ASK THAT
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:05.190
  • QUESTION. -SURE. YEMEN, LIBYA, SYRIA, IRAN, IRAQ, SOMALIA, AND
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:11.100
  • SUDAN. -YEAH, SHERRY JUST SAID ON FACEBOOK, DO YOU THINK IT
  • 00:05:11.110 --> 00:05:13.160
  • SHOULD INCLUDE OTHER COUNTRIES AS WELL? -THEY MAY END UP
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:15.270
  • INCLUDING OTHER COUNTRIES BUT LET ME SAY ONE THING HERE,
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:18.220
  • PEOPLE SAY WELL WHY ISN'T SAUDI ARABIA ON THERE WHEN SO MANY OF
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:22.250
  • THE 9-11 HIGHJACKERS CAME FROM SAUDI ARABIA? WELL, THE
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:26.120
  • DIFFERENCE IS, AND I HAVE THIS FROM MY EXPERIENCE ON WORKING ON
  • 00:05:26.130 --> 00:05:28.240
  • SOME OF THE TERROR ISSUES IN THE AFTERMATH OF 9-11 IS, THOSE
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:32.080
  • COUNTRIES ARE GIVING US DATA AND INFORMATION WHERE WE CAN RELY ON
  • 00:05:32.090 --> 00:05:37.040
  • IT. SO THE DIFFERENCE IS SOME COUNTRIES ARE NOT LISTED BECAUSE
  • 00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:40.170
  • WE DO GET DATA FROM THOSE COUNTRIES THAT HELPS US
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:43.220
  • DETERMINE THIS. -I WOULD JUST SAY, LIKE RIGHT NOW, YEMEN IS A
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:46.140
  • FAILED STATE. -RIGHT. -IRAQ IS A FAILED STATE IN CONFLICT. SO
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:49.190
  • IS SYRIA. -THE SUDAN. -OBVIOUSLY SUDAN HAS BEEN A,
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:53.150
  • -DISASTER. -IT'S LIKE IRAN. IT'S NOT A FAILED STATE BUT THEY
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:56.090
  • ARE A TOP SPONSOR OF TERROR. THEY ARE NOT HELPING THE U.S.
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:59.160
  • AND THEN, OF COURSE, SOMALIA, ANOTHER FAILED STATE, AND LIBYA.
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:02.220
  • THE MAJORITY OF THESE ARE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE NO, YES,
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:06.220
  • THEY'RE MAJORITY ISLAMIC. THEY ALSO HAVE, 5 OF THE 7 HAVE NO
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:11.160
  • GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE TO PUT IN PLACE REAL VETTING OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:15.100
  • OR TO HELP THE U.S. AND THEN THE OTHER 2 ARE ENEMIES OF THE
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:18.100
  • UNITED STATES ON THEIR FACE: SUDAN AND IRAN. AND THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:21.280
  • GOING TO HELP US WITH VETTING REGARDLESS. SO IT MAKES SENSE
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:24.220
  • WHY THESE 7, -EXACTLY. -AND SAUDI ARABIA IS NOT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:27.150
  • THEY DID PUT IN THERE, WE'RE REVIEWING, MAYBE ADDING OTHER
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:30.060
  • COUNTRIES AS WELL. -JANICE'S COMMENTS, THESE REFUGEES REALLY
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:33.000
  • DO WANT TO STAY IN THE MIDDLE EAST. IT'S THEIR HOME, PROVIDING
  • 00:06:33.010 --> 00:06:35.200
  • IN-REGION SAFE ZONES IS THE WAY TO GO. -SO THE PRESIDENT WAS ON
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:38.100
  • THE PHONE THIS WEEKEND WITH THE KING OF SAUDI ARABIA, KING
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:41.070
  • SALMAN. IN THAT CONVERSATION HE GOT AGREEMENT FROM THE SAUDIS TO
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:44.200
  • SUPPORT SAFE ZONES IN SYRIA AND IN YEMEN NEAR THE TURKISH BORDER
  • 00:06:44.210 --> 00:06:48.180
  • FOR SYRIA. THAT IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THAT'S ONE OF
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:51.240
  • THE THINGS WE SAID; TO HELP THESE REFUGEES, YOU NEED
  • 00:06:51.250 --> 00:06:54.170
  • IN-COUNTRY AID. RELOCATING THEM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY IS NOT OFTEN,
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:58.100
  • OR NOT ALWAYS THE BEST MOVE HERE. BUT IN-REGION AID. BUT BY
  • 00:06:58.110 --> 00:07:02.120
  • THE WAY, THE REASON CHRISTIANS ARE GIVEN A PRIORITY AND SOME
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:04.200
  • PEOPLE COMPLAINED ABOUT THAT, AND YAZIDIS, IS THERE ARE NO
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:07.070
  • SAFE ZONES FOR THEM EVEN WHEN YOU CREATE SAFE ZONES IN THE
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:10.010
  • REGION. THE CHRISTIANS IN THERE, AND THE YAZIDIS, THE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:12.220
  • MINORITIES, EVEN IN THE U.N. SAFE ZONES, WILL NOT BE SAFE.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:16.150
  • THAT'S JUST UNFORTUNATELY, I HATE TO SAY IT THAT WAY, BUT
  • 00:07:16.160 --> 00:07:19.060
  • THAT'S FACT. SO THAT'S THE REASON THAT'S THERE. LET'S GO
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:21.030
  • AHEAD AND TAKE A PHONE CALL. -LET'S GO TO ELAINE WHO IS
  • 00:07:21.040 --> 00:07:23.190
  • CALLING FROM TEXAS. -HI, ELAINE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:25.190
  • -YES, I HAVE A QUESTION, AS SOON AS THESE REFUGEES AND
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:28.220
  • IMMIGRANTS LAND, THE FIRST THING THEY DO IS LAWYER UP. AND I WANT
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:32.160
  • TO KNOW IF THEY'RE NOT LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS, DO THEY HAVE
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:36.250
  • THEIR RIGHT TO ATTORNEYS WHO DEFEND THEM FOR COMING HERE WHEN
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:40.150
  • THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE? -THEY DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT FOR
  • 00:07:40.160 --> 00:07:42.220
  • AN ATTORNEY PAID FOR BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BUT
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:46.230
  • THERE ARE LEGAL ADVOCACY GROUPS LIKE THE ACLU THAT JUMPED ON
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:50.200
  • THESE REAL QUICK. LOOK, I MEAN, THIS IS PART OF THE GREAT THING
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:53.100
  • ABOUT AMERICA IS EVEN A REFUGEE CAN BRING A LAW SUIT OR A CLAIM
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:56.230
  • REFUGEE. BUT LET ME TELL YOU WHAT IT'S NOT: A REFUGEE,
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:59.050
  • THERE'S NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO REFUGEE STATUS. THERE IS NOT
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:02.140
  • A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO IMMIGRATION STATUS. NOW I'M THE
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:05.130
  • GRANDSON OF A RUSSIAN IMMIGRANT. SO I AM IN FAVOR OF IMMIGRATION,
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:08.020
  • AND I WANT COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM. BUT IN THIS
  • 00:08:08.030 --> 00:08:10.240
  • SITUATION THEY WERE ABLE TO GO TO COURT BECAUSE ADVOCACY GROUPS
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:14.110
  • REPRESENTED THEM. WE LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY. WE LIVE IN A
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:17.000
  • CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC; THAT GETS TO HAPPEN. -YOU CAN MAKE A
  • 00:08:17.010 --> 00:08:19.190
  • CLAIM. NOW THAT'S THE ASYLEE'. YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:23.060
  • SEEKING ASYLUM OR REFUGEE STATUS. IF YOU SHOW UP HERE WITH
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:25.210
  • NO PAPERWORK AND TRY TO IMMIGRATE WITH NO PAPERWORK,
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:29.010
  • THEY SEND YOU RIGHT OUT. -RIGHT. -YOU CAN THEM MAKE A
  • 00:08:29.020 --> 00:08:31.090
  • CLAIM FOR ASYLUM IMMEDIATELY, AND SAY, OH, BUT THAT BECOMES
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:34.200
  • VERY DIFFICULT. SO, NO, YOU CAN'T JUST SHOW UP HERE WITH NO
  • 00:08:34.210 --> 00:08:38.150
  • DOCUMENTATION AND FILE A LAWSUIT BECAUSE YOU'RE AN IMMIGRANT.
  • 00:08:38.160 --> 00:08:41.100
  • -RIGHT. -THAT IS NOT THE CASE. ONLY A REFUGEE, AND IT'S NOT A
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:44.050
  • LAWSUIT. THEY GO THROUGH A REVIEW PROCESS. -YEAH, IT'S A
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:47.050
  • MINISTRY BOARD. -IT'S VERY DIFFICULT AND THEY HAVE TO PROVE
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:49.230
  • ON 5 CATEGORIES; THAT THEIR LIFE IS AT RISK BECAUSE OF 1 OF 5
  • 00:08:49.240 --> 00:08:54.020
  • CATEGORIES, THAT THE GOVERNMENT THAT THEY'RE FLEEING IS DOING
  • 00:08:54.030 --> 00:08:57.070
  • IT, OR THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T PROTECT THEM AND THAT THEY
  • 00:08:57.080 --> 00:08:59.280
  • LANDED HERE FIRST. SO IF THEY WENT THROUGH 2 OR 3 OTHER PLACES
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:03.220
  • THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SAFE ZONES, THEY GET DISMISSED AS WELL. IT
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:07.230
  • HAD TO BE LIKE YOU FLEW FROM THAT COUNTRY RIGHT INTO THE U.S.
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:11.100
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. -SO ALSO LET ME SAY THIS, IT'S
  • 00:09:11.110 --> 00:09:13.240
  • IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND, AND THAT IS THE ACLU'S LAWSUIT WAS
  • 00:09:13.250 --> 00:09:16.130
  • ACTUALLY VERY LIMITED IN SCOPE. WHERE THEY GOT A RESTRAINING
  • 00:09:16.140 --> 00:09:20.000
  • ORDER WAS ON PEOPLE THAT WERE TRAVELING WITH GREEN CARDS OR
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:23.150
  • ALREADY HAD THE VISAS. AND THAT WAS THEN CLARIFIED THE NEXT DAY
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:27.020
  • BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. BUT JORDAN WAS ON FOX NEWS OVER THE
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:30.250
  • WEEKEND AND SAID THAT WAS A PROBLEM AREA. SO WE'VE
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:33.060
  • ACKNOWLEDGED THAT. GO AHEAD LOGAN. -WE WOULDN'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:35.030
  • DISAGREE WITH THAT SITUATION HAPPENING. -NO, I THINK THAT
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:37.000
  • WAS A MISTAKE IN THE ROLLOUT OF THE ORDER. BUT THE ORDER ITSELF,
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:40.180
  • ACTUALLY, WAS FINE, BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN CLEAR TO THE
  • 00:09:40.190 --> 00:09:44.090
  • TSA AGENCY. I MEAN, THIS IS PART OF THE PROBLEM, IT'S THE
  • 00:09:44.100 --> 00:09:46.190
  • BUREAUCRATS. I MEAN, YOU'RE DEALING WITH THE TSA AND THEY'RE
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:49.100
  • TRYING TO ENFORCE AN ORDER. -SOME WHO WILL TRY TO UNDERMINE
  • 00:09:49.110 --> 00:09:51.130
  • THIS WHOLE PROGRAM BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE THE TRUMP
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:54.070
  • ADMINISTRATION. -YES, BUT WHAT YOU DO IS YOU CLARIFY IT AND IF
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.280
  • YOU'RE TRAVELING WITH A VISA AND A GREEN CARD, YOU'RE OKAY. NOW
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:10:00.160
  • HAVING SAID THAT, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:10:00.170 --> 00:10:02.240
  • VETTING WHEN YOU COME IN. EVEN WITH A VISA, IF YOU WERE IN IRAN
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:06.060
  • OR IRAQ, AND YOU KNOW WHAT THE ANSWER TO THAT SHOULD BE, THAT'S
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:10.000
  • RIGHT. WE HAVE TO HAVE ENHANCED ABILITY TO DO THAT. -THAT'S
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:13.130
  • WHAT THIS IS REALLY GIVING THE TIME FOR, THAT 90 DAYS, -TO
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:16.030
  • FIGURE THAT OUT. -IS TO INCREASE HOW WE ARE GOING TO VET
  • 00:10:16.040 --> 00:10:18.260
  • THOSE FOLKS. AND THEN WE WILL ALLOW THE PEOPLE WHO DO GET THE
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:21.070
  • VISAS, IF THEY GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS, WILL BE ALLOWED INTO
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:24.270
  • THE COUNTRY THROUGH THE NORMAL PROCESS. I ACTUALLY THINK IF
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:27.240
  • YOU'RE FROM ONE OF THESE COUNTRIES, THIS WILL, IN THE
  • 00:10:27.250 --> 00:10:29.220
  • LONG TERM, -IF YOU'RE LEGITIMATE. -HELP YOU IF YOU'RE
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:32.090
  • A LEGIT PERSON ON THE VISA SIDE. -THE PRESIDENT SAID 50.000
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:34.220
  • REFUGEES WILL BE ACCEPTED BY THE UNITED STATES THIS YEAR. THAT,
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:37.190
  • BY THE WAY, HAS BEEN THE AVERAGE UNTIL THE LAST YEAR OR 2 WHEN
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:40.260
  • PRESIDENT OBAMA UPPED IT TO 100.000. BUT BEFORE THAT IT WAS
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:43.290
  • 50.000. SO THAT WAS THE NUMBER. LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE ANOTHER
  • 00:10:44.000 --> 00:10:46.130
  • CALL. -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO ROBERT CALLING IN MARYLAND.
  • 00:10:46.140 --> 00:10:48.130
  • YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HEY, ROBERT. -YEAH, HI, JORDAN. HI,
  • 00:10:48.140 --> 00:10:50.190
  • JAY. I JUST WANTED TO ASK YOU, I WANTED TO GET A BETTER
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:54.020
  • UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS BAN ON PEOPLE
  • 00:10:54.030 --> 00:10:59.020
  • COMING FROM THE 7 SPECIFIC COUNTRIES THAT YOU LISTED. AND
  • 00:10:59.030 --> 00:11:01.170
  • HERE'S WHY, I HAD A CONVERSATION YESTERDAY WITH SOMEONE AT A
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:03.200
  • PLACE WHERE I WENT TO GO EAT AND BASED UPON CNNS REPORTING, THIS
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:08.140
  • PERSON WAS GIVING THE IMPRESSION IT WAS A BAN ON MUSLIMS. AND HE
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:12.140
  • FELT IT WAS GIVING THE IMPRESSION THAT ALL MUSLIMS, NOT
  • 00:11:12.150 --> 00:11:15.050
  • ALL MUSLIMS ARE BAD. AND I SAID I AGREE WITH HIM, NOT ALL
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:17.240
  • MUSLIMS ARE BAD. BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE A BAN ON THESE COUNTRIES
  • 00:11:17.250 --> 00:11:21.140
  • BECAUSE THESE COUNTRIES ARE AREAS WHERE THERE'S EITHER
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:23.260
  • SHARIA LAW OR THEY'RE SPONSORING TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.
  • 00:11:23.270 --> 00:11:26.110
  • -CORRECT. -AND HE SAYS TO ME, OH, BUT THERE ARE CHRISTIAN AND
  • 00:11:26.120 --> 00:11:28.120
  • HINDU TERRORISTS. I SAID, WELL LET ME SAY THIS TO YOU, LATELY
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:30.150
  • THE ATTACKS WE HAVE HAD IN THIS COUNTRY AND MAYBE OVERSEAS, I
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:36.060
  • DON'T KNOW IF I SAID OVERSEAS, HAVE BEEN BY MUSLIMS. -WELL,
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:38.170
  • HERE'S THE FACT, FIRST OF ALL, IF THERE WERE "CHRISTIAN"
  • 00:11:38.180 --> 00:11:40.190
  • TERRORISTS, GUESS WHAT? THEY SHOULDN'T BE ADMITTED TO THE
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:43.010
  • UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THAT'S #1. #2, THIS IS NOT A MUSLIM
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:45.230
  • BAN. WE SAID THIS IN OUR INITIAL PROPOSAL, WHICH THIS IS VERY
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:48.230
  • SIMILAR TO WHAT'S BEEN ADOPTED HERE, WHAT WE PUT FORWARD, IS IT
  • 00:11:48.240 --> 00:11:51.160
  • NEEDS TO BE COUNTRY SPECIFIC. AND AGAIN, THERE ARE 7 COUNTRIES
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:54.240
  • WHERE THE COUNTRIES DESIGNATED BY PRESIDENT OBAMA AS COUNTRIES
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:58.010
  • OF PARTICULAR CONCERN, CPCS, AND THOSE WERE THE 7. THAT DOES NOT
  • 00:11:58.020 --> 00:12:02.160
  • MEAN OTHERS WILL NOT BE ADDED. BUT ALSO YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:05.010
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND, SOME COUNTRIES ARE NOT ON THERE
  • 00:12:05.020 --> 00:12:07.200
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE INTELLIGENCE COOPERATING MECHANISMS IN PLACE
  • 00:12:07.210 --> 00:12:11.100
  • THAT ALLOWS US TO SHARE INFORMATION. SO THAT'S PART OF
  • 00:12:11.110 --> 00:12:13.280
  • WHAT'S GOING ON HERE. -IF YOU WANTED A MUSLIM BAN, YOU'D LIST
  • 00:12:13.290 --> 00:12:15.280
  • 50 COUNTRIES; THE MAJORITY MUSLIM COUNTRIES. -THE
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:18.080
  • ORGANIZATION OF THE ISLAMIC CONFERENCE. RIGHT. -THAT'S HOW
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.140
  • YOU'D IMPLEMENT A MUSLIM BAN. THIS IS 7. AND AGAIN, LET ME
  • 00:12:20.150 --> 00:12:23.260
  • JUST REPEAT, 5 OF THESE 7 ARE FAILED STATES AT THE MOMENT.
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:26.180
  • THEY HAVE NO METHOD OF VETTING THEIR OWN PEOPLE OR THEY ARE
  • 00:12:26.190 --> 00:12:29.260
  • WARTORN. THEY HAVE NO AFFECTIVE GOVERNMENT SO THEY HAVE
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:32.090
  • MULTI-GOVERNMENTS. ONE IS IRAN, THAT IS A SWORN ENEMY OF THE
  • 00:12:32.100 --> 00:12:35.290
  • UNITED STATES. AND SUDAN, A #2 STATE SPONSOR OF TERROR. SO
  • 00:12:36.000 --> 00:12:40.190
  • THOSE TWO ARE NOT GOING TO HELP THE U.S. ANYWAY. THE FACT THAT
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:43.070
  • YOU COULD EVEN TRAVEL FROM THOSE PLACES IN THE FIRST PLACE WAS A
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:47.000
  • BENEFIT TO THE PEOPLE OF IRAN AND SUDAN WHO WERE OKAY TO BE
  • 00:12:47.010 --> 00:12:49.120
  • HERE. AND THIS IS JUST GOING TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:52.250
  • LEGITIMATE BUSINESS PEOPLE, PEOPLE TRAVELING FOR FAMILY, TO
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:56.240
  • GO THROUGH THE PROCESS SO THAT IT'S CLEAR. BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:59.230
  • 2011 BANNED ALL IRAQIS FROM THE REFUGEE PROGRAM. CONVERSLY,
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:04.020
  • PRESIDENT OBAMA ISSUED THIS VISA WAIVER PROGRAM. SO THIS WORKED
  • 00:13:04.030 --> 00:13:09.150
  • THE OTHER WAY WHERE HE TOOK AWAY THE NEED FOR A VISA FROM SOME
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:12.280
  • COUNTRIES. SO YOU SEE HOW FLEXIBLE IT IS WHEN YOU,
  • 00:13:12.290 --> 00:13:15.130
  • -THAT'S THE POWER OF THE EXECUTIVE. THE PRESIDENT HAS THE
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:17.140
  • AUTHORITY TO DO THIS. PERIOD. -IN A SUPREME COURT CASE BACK
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:19.190
  • IN 2015, THERE WAS A WOMAN FROM AFGHANISTAN. HER HUSBAND WAS
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:22.170
  • APPLYING FOR A VISA, SPOUSAL VISA. HE HAD BEEN A CIVIL
  • 00:13:22.180 --> 00:13:26.160
  • SERVANT FOR THE TALIBAN; SO NOT A FIGHTER. HE WAS DENIED A VISA.
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:29.260
  • SHE TRIED TO FILE A LAWSUIT; MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:31.200
  • SUPREME COURT. UNANIMOUS DECISION. -SHE LOST. -U.S.
  • 00:13:31.210 --> 00:13:34.170
  • GOVERNMENT CAN DENY A VISA BASED ON SECURITY CONCERNS WITHOUT ANY
  • 00:13:34.180 --> 00:13:36.240
  • EXPLANATION. -PERIOD. SO THAT WAS ALL 9 MEMBERS OF THE COURT,
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:39.290
  • INCLUDING THE MOST LIBERAL MEMBERS. OUR FRIEND, ZUHDI
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:42.110
  • JASSER, SAID THIS, I WANT TO PLAY THIS RIGHT BEFORE THE
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:44.090
  • BREAK: ZUHDI JASSER: THERE IS NOTHING MORE PRO-MUSLIM. I MEAN,
  • 00:13:44.100 --> 00:13:47.040
  • WE NEED TO STOP THE IDENTITY POLITICS OF THE LEFT. THERE IS
  • 00:13:47.050 --> 00:13:49.130
  • NOTHING MORE PRO-MUSLIM THAN VETTING AGAINST JIHADISTS SO
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:53.060
  • THAT THOSE COMING IN TRULY REPRESENT MUSLIMS WHO BELIEVE IN
  • 00:13:53.070 --> 00:13:57.030
  • FREEDOM AND OUR WAY OF LIFE. -WHEN WE COME BACK FROM THE
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:59.210
  • BREAK, WE'RE GOING TO TAKE MORE OF YOUR CALLS. STAY TUNED.
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:02.060
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:06.280
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK EVERYBODY. I'M
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:08.020
  • GETTING A LOT OF QUESTIONS COMING IN, EVEN DURING THE
  • 00:14:08.030 --> 00:14:09.130
  • BREAK, TO MY IPHONE ABOUT WHY AREN'T OTHER COUNTRIES INCLUDED?
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:13.140
  • WHY IS THAT NOT THE CASE? BECAUSE WE HAVE SHARING, BY THE
  • 00:14:13.150 --> 00:14:16.050
  • WAY, OTHER COUNTRIES MAY BE ADDED, BUT THE OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:18.220
  • THAT HAVE NOT BEEN ADDED THAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY THINK, LIKE
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:20.150
  • SAUDI ARABIA, IS BECAUSE WE HAVE INTELLIGENCE SHARING
  • 00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:23.030
  • CAPABILITIES WITH THE SAUDIS, WITH THE EGYPTIANS, WITH THE
  • 00:14:23.040 --> 00:14:25.230
  • JORDANIANS SO THAT WE HAVE THE INFORMATION NECESSARY TO MAKE
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:29.030
  • THE DECISIONS, HOPEFULLY, IN A TIMELY MANNER NOW. SO THAT IS
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:31.140
  • VERY DIFFERENT THAN THE SITUATION WE HAVE WITH THESE
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:33.290
  • OTHER COUNTRIES, WHICH AS JORDAN SAID, ARE MOSTLY COUNTRIES THAT
  • 00:14:34.000 --> 00:14:35.200
  • ARE FAILED STATES OR ARE COMPLETELY CORRUPT. LOGAN
  • 00:14:35.210 --> 00:14:38.220
  • SEKULOW: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE USING THAT AGAINST HE TRUMP
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:40.190
  • ADMINISTRATION SAYING THOSE ARE THE PLACES WHERE HE HAS BUSINESS
  • 00:14:40.200 --> 00:14:42.240
  • INTERESTS AND HOTELS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. -THAT IS NONSENSE.
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:45.030
  • -THAT'S A TALKING POINT APPARENTLY. -WE HAVE SHARING
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:48.090
  • INTELLIGENT GATHERING INFORMATION WITH THEM. PERIOD.
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:50.210
  • AND THAT'S THE, JOE SCARBOROUGH AND KEITH ELLISON, I WANT TO
  • 00:14:50.220 --> 00:14:53.030
  • PLAY THAT. I THINK IT'S VERY RELEVANT TO THIS. #22: -THE
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:55.110
  • LIST OF 7 COUNTRIES THAT WERE SELECTED ACTUALLY CAME FROM
  • 00:14:55.120 --> 00:14:58.290
  • GUIDANCE FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. -BUT JOE, HOW
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:03.090
  • CAN WE SAY THIS IS NOT A MUSLIM BAN WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAID HE
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:06.270
  • WANTED A MUSLIM BAN? I MEAN, THE FACT IS, -BECAUSE A BILLION
  • 00:15:06.280 --> 00:15:09.210
  • MUSLIMS AREN'T BANNED. -YEAH, BECAUSE A BILLION MUSLIMS AREN'T
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:13.120
  • BANNED. THAT MIGHT DO IT. JORDAN SEKULOW: AND THERE'S EXCEPTIONS
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:15.270
  • THROUGHOUT THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER. I MEAN, IT'S NOT JUST ONE, BUT
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:18.110
  • MULTIPLE PLACES WHERE EVEN DURING THIS TIME PERIOD, THE
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:22.170
  • DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, WORKING WITH THE STATE
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.110
  • DEPARTMENT, CAN MAKE SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS FOR PEOPLE FROM THESE
  • 00:15:24.120 --> 00:15:27.210
  • COUNTRIES INCLUDING MUSLIMS. AND ALSO INCLUDING, OF COURSE,
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:31.030
  • TRYING TO PARTICULARIZE PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY FACING
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:33.190
  • PERSECUTIONS LIKE RELIGIOUS MINORITIES. NOTICE HE DIDN'T
  • 00:15:33.200 --> 00:15:36.120
  • JUST SAY CHRISTIANS. THAT'S BECAUSE THERE ARE ISLAMIC
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:39.110
  • MINORITY GROUPS THAT ARE PERSECUTED BY ISIS. -YAZIDIS.
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:43.150
  • -IF YOU'RE SHIA, -RIGHT. -ISIS WOULD LIKE TO CUT YOUR
  • 00:15:43.160 --> 00:15:46.100
  • HEAD OFF TOO. YAZIDIS, WHICH ARE KIND OF AN OFFSHOOT OF THEIR OWN
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:49.180
  • EASTERN FAITH. CHRISTIANS, WHICH FALL, AND IT'S DEPENDING ON THE
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:54.270
  • TYPES OF CHRISTIANS AND WHERE THEY ARE. FOR INSTANCE, YOU'RE A
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:57.180
  • CHRISTIAN IN DAMASCUS RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE PROBABLY OKAY. YOU'RE
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:16:01.000
  • PROTECTED BY THE ASSAD REGIME. IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN OUTSIDE IN
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:05.040
  • THESE MOSUL TYPE AREAS, YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED AND SO YOU WOULD
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:08.250
  • THEN, SO THEY HAVE THE CASE BY CASE PROCESS STILL OPEN. THAT
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:12.240
  • HAS NOT BEEN CLOSED. -THAT HAS NOT CHANGED. VERY IMPORTANT TO
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:14.270
  • UNDERSTAND. -IT DOESN'T CLOSE DURING THESE 90 AND 120 DAY
  • 00:16:14.280 --> 00:16:16.270
  • PERIODS. -RIGHT. ALRIGHT, LOGAN. -LET'S GO TO HEATHER
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:19.070
  • WHO'S CALLING IN FLORIDA. -HI, HEATHER. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:21.200
  • -HI. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH SINCE I'VE
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:24.110
  • STARTED LISTENING TO YOUR BROADCAST. -GREAT. -IN REGARDS
  • 00:16:24.120 --> 00:16:28.140
  • TO THE SAFE ZONES. I AGREE THAT AS THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:33.050
  • THE WORLD, WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP OUR
  • 00:16:33.060 --> 00:16:35.150
  • FELLOW MAN. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THESE SAFE ZONES GIVE US THE
  • 00:16:35.160 --> 00:16:38.260
  • BEST POSSIBILITY OF HELPING THE MOST AMOUNT OF PEOPLE. I KNOW
  • 00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:42.210
  • THAT YOU ALL SPOKE PREVIOUSLY ABOUT A PROPOSAL YOU PRESENTED
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:46.150
  • TO THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION. -RIGHT. -BACK AS EARLY AS
  • 00:16:46.160 --> 00:16:49.280
  • NOVEMBER 2015. MY QUESTION IS, IS HAS THAT PROPOSAL BEEN
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:53.190
  • PRESENTED TO THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION? -YES. -AND IF
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:16:56.130
  • SO, IS THAT SOMETHING THEY MIGHT BE CONSIDERING DURING THIS?
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:59.070
  • -WELL, IT'S BASICALLY, WE DID SHARE THIS WITH THE INCOMING
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:02.110
  • ADMINISTRATION AS WE SHARED IT WITH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:04.230
  • AND I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT A LOT OF WHAT'S IN THERE ARE
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:07.130
  • THINGS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT. THE SAFE ZONES CAME UP NOT IN AN
  • 00:17:07.140 --> 00:17:11.240
  • EXECUTIVE ORDER, AND THAT WAS BECAUSE THE EXECUTIVE ORDER, BY
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:14.060
  • THE WAY, ON THE REFUGEE STATUS, WOULD COME FROM, THAT'S MORE OF
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:18.270
  • DHS AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT WHERE THIS WOULD COME FROM, THE
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:23.140
  • SAFE ZONES WOULD BE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. -RIGHT. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:25.210
  • MILITARILY FIX THOSE. -YES, BECAUSE IT'S A MILITARY ISSUE.
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:27.170
  • BUT I THINK THOSE SAFE ZONES WORK. THEY DON'T WORK FOR
  • 00:17:27.180 --> 00:17:29.260
  • YAZIDIS AND CHRISTIANS BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT SAFE EVEN IN THE
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:32.260
  • SAFE ZONES. SO THAT'S PART OF WHY YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:35.020
  • REFUGEE ISSUES THAT'LL MOVE FORWARD. I APPRECIATE YOUR CALL.
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.200
  • LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE ANOTHER CALL. -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO, A
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:40.000
  • LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HOLDING, LET'S GO TO SHERRY IN ILLINOIS.
  • 00:17:40.010 --> 00:17:43.000
  • YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI, SHERRY. GO AHEAD. -HI, GOOD MORNING,
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:44.240
  • JAY. COULD YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW A FEDERAL JUDGE IS ALLOWED
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:49.290
  • TO PUT A BAN ON AN EXECUTIVE ORDER? -OKAY, HE DID NOT PUT A
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:53.000
  • BAN, I'LL JORDAN GET INTO THIS TOO, SHE DID NOT A PUT A BAN ON
  • 00:17:53.010 --> 00:17:55.140
  • THE EXECUTIVE ORDER. SHE SAID AS FAR AS ENFORCEMENT GOES, THOSE
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:59.150
  • THAT HAD VALID GREEN CARDS OR VISAS SHOULD NOT BE DETAINED.
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:03.120
  • THAT'S ALL THAT ORDER SAID, WHICH THE ADMINISTRATION CAME
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:05.150
  • OUT. JORDAN WAS ON YESTERDAY. SAID IT REALLY SHOULDN'T APPLY
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:08.020
  • TO THEM. THE ADMINISTRATION CAME OUT AND SAID IT DOES NOT.
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:10.110
  • -YEAH, THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF REINCE PRIEBUS CAME OUT
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:12.100
  • AND SAID IF YOU HAD A VISA OR GREEN CARD AND YOU HAD ARRIVED
  • 00:18:12.110 --> 00:18:15.090
  • IN THE U.S. LIKE THOSE FOLKS, SO JUST LIKE THE JUDGE SAID, THE
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:18.060
  • TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS NOT CHALLENGING THE HOLDING IN THAT
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:21.160
  • LEGAL ACTION. EVERYONE WHO WAS DETAINED FOR THOSE SHORT PERIODS
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:25.250
  • OF TIME, JUST HOURS, HAS NOW BEEN LET GO AND BEEN ABLE TO GO
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:29.220
  • ABOUT THEIR WAY. PRETTY NORMAL, BY THE WAY, IF YOU TRAVEL AROUND
  • 00:18:29.230 --> 00:18:32.210
  • THE WORLD, TO HAVE ISSUES LIKE THIS. AND THESE PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:35.110
  • COMING FROM COUNTRIES WHERE IT'S A LOT TOUGHER TO TRAVEL THAN IT
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:38.130
  • IS HERE. -SO JUST TO CLARIFY TO PEOPLE, THE ACLU LAWSUIT, NOT
  • 00:18:38.140 --> 00:18:42.070
  • REALLY VALID? -IT'S NOT BECAUSE IT DIDN'T CHALLENGE THE, THEY
  • 00:18:42.080 --> 00:18:45.260
  • MAY HAVE SUBSEQUENT ONES NOW, -EVEN IF THEY WON, IT DOESN'T
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:48.060
  • REALLY AFFECT ANYTHING? -WHAT THEY WON DID NOT AFFECT THE
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:50.050
  • IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS ORDER AS INTERPRETED BY THE
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:52.250
  • ADMINISTRATION. BUT LET ME SAY THIS, THE REASON THAT PRESIDENT,
  • 00:18:52.260 --> 00:18:55.200
  • WILL JUST PUT THIS IN A CHAT, AND THIS IS CORRECT, THE REASON
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:57.270
  • THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA PUT A PAUSE ON REFUGEES OUT OF IRAQ IN 2011
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:19:01.130
  • WAS BECAUSE 2 AL QAEDA OPERATIVES WERE IN BOWLING
  • 00:19:01.140 --> 00:19:04.260
  • GREEN, KY WHO CAME IN AS IRAQI REFUGEES. SO THIS HAS BEEN AN
  • 00:19:04.270 --> 00:19:09.180
  • ONGOING PROBLEM FOR MULTIPLE ADMINISTRATIONS. BUT YES, THE
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:13.030
  • ACLU LAWSUIT DID NOT APPLY TO THE OVERALL ORDER ITSELF.
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:17.020
  • -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO BETH IN NAPLES, FL. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:19:17.030 --> 00:19:18.270
  • -HI, BETH. -THANKS FOR BRINGING TRUTH AND AWARENESS
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:23.210
  • -SURE. -TO THE DAY TO DAY ISSUES THAT OUR COUNTRY FACES.
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:26.060
  • -ABSOLUTELY. -A COUPLE OF ISSUES. THE PRESIDENT, WHAT MANY
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:30.130
  • PEOPLE AREN'T AWARE OF IS THAT THE PRESIDENT IS ONLY ENFORCING
  • 00:19:30.140 --> 00:19:33.180
  • THE CURRENT LAWS ON THE BOOKS. -THAT'S CORRECT. -AND
  • 00:19:33.190 --> 00:19:36.250
  • EVERYBODY IS CONCENTRATING ON THE BORDERS, BUT WHAT MANY
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:43.050
  • PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE IS THAT WE HAVE SO MUCH SHORELINE. -NO,
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:49.060
  • THE SHORELINE ISSUE, LOOK, THESE ARE, LOOK, BORDERS ARE BORDERS,
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:51.180
  • WHETHER IT'S A SHORELINE OR WHETHER IT IS BORDERING ANOTHER
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.050
  • COUNTRY, THOSE ARE ALL PROBLEM POTENTIALLY. BUT YOU BROUGHT UP,
  • 00:19:54.060 --> 00:19:57.080
  • FIRST, LET ME READ TO EVERYBODY, BECAUSE I DON'T THINK MOST
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:20:00.090
  • PEOPLE HAVE READ THE EXECUTIVE ORDER, HERE'S WHAT IT SAYS: BY
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:02.230
  • THE AUTHORITY VESTED ME AS PRESIDENT BY THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:05.080
  • AND THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INCLUDING THE
  • 00:20:05.090 --> 00:20:08.240
  • IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT 8USC11O1 AND SECTION 301 OF
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:14.040
  • TITLE 3 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE, AND TO PROTECT THE
  • 00:20:14.050 --> 00:20:17.040
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM TERRORIST ATTACKS BY FOREIGN NATIONALS
  • 00:20:17.050 --> 00:20:19.270
  • ADMITTED TO THE UNITED STATES, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, AND THEN
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:22.130
  • HE INCORPORATES IN THE ORDER THE EXACT LANGUAGE OF THE STATUTE.
  • 00:20:22.140 --> 00:20:27.120
  • SO THERE YOU HAVE IT. THAT'S EXACTLY THE WAY EXECUTIVE ORDERS
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:30.220
  • ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WRITTEN. LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE ANOTHER
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:32.290
  • CALL. -ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO STEFAN, WHO'S CALLING FROM
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:34.160
  • BUFFALO, NY. -HI, YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI, JAY. I LOVE WHAT YOU
  • 00:20:34.170 --> 00:20:37.290
  • GUYS ARE DOING. -THANKS. -2 QUESTIONS: WASN'T THERE A BAN ON
  • 00:20:38.000 --> 00:20:41.240
  • HAITIANS COMING INTO AMERICA AT ONE TIME? AND THAT THEY ALSO
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:48.040
  • STOPPED A CERTAIN COUNTRY FROM FLYING IN PEOPLE BECAUSE OF
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:51.230
  • EBOLA? AND WHO ORDERED THESE? -THAT'S INS, THAT'S HHS, SO
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:58.050
  • YOU'RE SAYING, IS IT IN THE NORMAL COURSE, JORDAN WILL GIVE
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:01.030
  • YOU THIS TOO, THE ANSWER TO THIS IS YES. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:04.090
  • PUT A STOP ORDER IN PLACE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES BECAUSE, WHETHER
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:07.270
  • IT'S IN THAT CASE IT'S MORE MEDICAL, OF A MEDICAL CONCERN OR
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:10.140
  • NOT. YES, THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. -OH, SURE. I MEAN, IF
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:12.290
  • YOU'VE GOT AN EBOLA OUTBREAK, YOU HAVE TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:17.040
  • THERE. AND WE DO PUT THOSE IN PLACE. AND NO ONE IS OUTRAGED.
  • 00:21:17.050 --> 00:21:20.090
  • IT'S BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING THE SAFETY OF OUR
  • 00:21:20.100 --> 00:21:22.280
  • PEOPLE, WHICH IS THE EXACT REASON BEHIND THIS EXECUTIVE
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:26.130
  • ORDER. THIS IS NOT JUST DONE BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE THIS GROUP
  • 00:21:26.140 --> 00:21:29.040
  • OF PEOPLE. IT'S DONE BECAUSE IT'S TO QUOTE TO PROTECT THE
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:32.080
  • NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE U.S. IT'S VERY
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:35.090
  • FOCUSED AND SPECIFIC. NOT AGAINST PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT AGREE
  • 00:21:35.100 --> 00:21:39.020
  • WITH EVERYTHING IN THE U.S., OUR POLICY, BUT FROM ACTUAL
  • 00:21:39.030 --> 00:21:42.020
  • TERRORISTS. AND TO DO THAT WE NEED A REFORM IN OUR SYSTEM. AND
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:45.000
  • I THINK THEY'RE ACTUALLY BEING PRETTY BOLD IN HOW QUICKLY THEY
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:48.070
  • THINK THEY CAN GET THESE REFORMS DONE. -90 AND 120 DAYS IS
  • 00:21:48.080 --> 00:21:50.210
  • QUICK. -YES, 90 AND 120 DAYS IS VERY QUICK. NOW I THINK THE 90
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:54.210
  • FOR THOSE SPECIFIC COUNTRIES MAKES MORE, THAT 120 DAYS,
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:57.020
  • THOUGH, AGAIN, THE SAME, WE'RE GOING TO RAMP THIS UP FOR
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:21:59.170
  • PEOPLE, JUST GIVE US TIME TO GET BETTER POLICY IN POSITION.
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:02.220
  • -BILL CLINTON PUT A STOP ON HOLD ON HAITIAN REFUGEES IN THE
  • 00:22:02.230 --> 00:22:07.130
  • 1990S. THAT HAPPENED. CAN WE GRAB THESE 2 CALLS IN 2 MINUTES?
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:09.140
  • WE'LL SEE. -WE'LL TRY TO AT LEAST DO ONE. SANDY IN NORFOLK,
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:11.140
  • YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -SANDY, GO AHEAD. REAL QUICK PLEASE. -HI,

  • JAY, AGAIN, THANK YOU GUYS FOR EVERYTHING. -SURE. -I SAW AN
  • 00:22:13.010 --> 00:22:17.060
  • INTERESTING PIECE ON FACEBOOK THIS MORNING WHERE THE GENTLEMAN
  • 00:22:17.070 --> 00:22:19.210
  • COMPARED SALARIES IN THESE COUNTRIES THAT ARE VERY POVERTY
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:25.190
  • STRICKEN AND HE USED GUMBALLS, AND IT WAS SO INTERESTING, WE
  • 00:22:25.200 --> 00:22:30.100
  • CAN'T SAVE EVERY IMMIGRANT. -WE CAN DO COMPREHENSIVE HELP AND
  • 00:22:30.110 --> 00:22:37.010
  • COMPREHENSIVE AID AND THAT'S PRECISELY AND EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:39.070
  • TRYING TO DO IN PLACE RIGHT NOW. AND I THINK THIS ORDER
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:41.250
  • ACCOMPLISHES, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT YOU ADD THE ELEMENT ON,
  • 00:22:41.260 --> 00:22:44.110
  • WHICH IS THE ELEMENT OF IN-REGION AID. I'M GOING TO TRY
  • 00:22:44.120 --> 00:22:46.220

  • SUPPORT THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:55.150
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THEY DON'T SUPPORT IT. -MOST PEOPLE, A LOT
  • 00:22:55.160 --> 00:22:57.240
  • OF PEOPLE DIDN'T READ IT, AND THERE WAS MISUNDERSTANDING AND
  • 00:22:57.250 --> 00:23:00.050
  • THERE WERE SOME ROLL OUT ISSUES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN MORE CLEAR.
  • 00:23:00.060 --> 00:23:02.170
  • THAT'S THE HONEST ISSUE. -BUT WHEN YOU GET CHANGE, AND THE
  • 00:23:02.180 --> 00:23:05.170
  • KIND OF CHANGE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS BRINGING, THERE ARE GOING TO
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:08.060
  • BE SOME ROLL OUT ISSUES. THE FACT IS THE ROLL OUT ISSUES WERE
  • 00:23:08.070 --> 00:23:10.140
  • ALL HANDLED WITHIN 24 HOURS. -24 HOURS. -AND I DON'T SEE
  • 00:23:10.150 --> 00:23:14.020
  • ANY OF THESE ISSUES POPPING UP TODAY AT AIRPORTS. -AGAIN,
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:16.140
  • THEY'RE NOT POPPING UP TODAY AT AIRPORTS BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:18.180
