In the aftermath of the Chattanooga, Tennessee shootings in which five U.S. military personnel were killed on military sites by a Muslim terrorist, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is seeking to restrict immigration to the U.S. from predominantly Islamic countries, The Daily Beast website reports today (July 18, 2015).
Paul said, "I'm very concerned about immigration to this country from countries that have hotbeds of jihadism and hotbeds of this Islamism."
He added, "I think there does need to be heightened security. Nobody has a right to come to America, so this isn't something that we can say, 'oh their rights are being violated.'"
Accused Chattanooga shooter Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez -- a Muslim -- was born in Kuwait and became a naturalized U.S. citizen. In fact, all of the serious acts of terror committed in America -- from 9/11/2001 to the present day -- have been committed by Muslims.
