In reaction to Donald Trump's suggestion that a
"total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."
The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) says that
Trump's ''outrageous'' comments on banning Muslims echo ''the policies enacted by nazi Germany against the Jews.''
But that's not true.
If anything, it's what F. D. Roosevelt and his cronies in government before and during the Holocaust did by refusing Jews entry to the United States.
Nazi Germany persecuted Jews, jailed them, took away their livelihoods, kicked them out of universities, boycotted their businesses and eventually killed them. It did not ban them from entering Germany.
