  1. Visas for Muslim Ban Countries Down 44%, While Puerto Rican Americans Are Still Without Power or Water. Roger Algase

    POLITICO reports that, according to its own study, visa issuance from the six Muslim countries that have been on Trump's entry ban list for most of this year (still, euphemistically and misleadingly called a "travel ban" by most of the media) is down 44 per cent despite the fact that, at least from January to June, 2017 most of the ban provisions had been struck down by various federal courts.

    The POLITICO study gives many concrete examples of specific visa refusals or long delays whose only purpose seems to be discouraging citizens of the countries concerned, even those who have visited the US before without incident, from even applying for visas. See:

    Meanwhile, according to The Hill, 146 Democratic leaders have called on Trump to use more military and other assets to help the non-white, non-European American citizens of Puerto Rico recover from the worst natural disaster in their history.

    It appears that Trump has been more vigilant and successful at keeping non-white immigrants who belong to a disfavored religion out of the United States than he has been in helping millions of American citizens of color in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands overcome the severe hardships that they are now undergoing from Hurricane Irma.
