Parry Sound and Muskoka have been talking a lot about the new immigration ban in the United States. MP Tony Clement says he’s been getting tweets, calls, and text messages about the ban implemented by President Donald Trump, which doesn’t allow citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries into the States. Clement says the community has been asking a lot about what his position is.
Clement says the new executive order both over reaches and under reaches
Clement says it under reaches because seven countries are named, but places where known terrorists have come from aren’t on the list, like Egypt and Pakistan.
Overall, Clement calls the ban confusing, and a strange way to do policy.
