In the late 1930's the United States banned refugees from Germany from stepping foot on U.S. soil. More than 250 Jews later died in the Holocaust. Now, President Trump wants to ban folks from seven pre-dominantly Muslim nations from entering, even slapping a halt to the on-going refugee program.

Interestingly, this sweeping executive order also allows Homeland Security to admit refugees for people of a minority religion within their home country. Sounds like the President is making a law favoring one religious belief over another.
