OUR VOICES These comments were written before February 15 2017 in response to the Executive Order on immigration signed January 27 2017 They do not reflect any developments after that date See Rabbi Skoff s introduction to this section on page two Michael Diamant T he Executive Order suspends for 90 days the entry into the United States of persons traveling on passports from Iraq Syria Sudan Iran Somalia Libya and Yemen and suspends entry of all refugees for 120 days and thereafter cutting in half the annual number to be admitted The Administration repeatedly stated that the purpose was to prevent another 9 11 Yet none of the 9 11 terrorists originated or had passports from any of the listed countries The planners and perpetrators of 9 11 were citizens of Saudi Arabia Egypt Lebanon the United Arab Emirates Pakistan and Morocco Not one would be barred by this Executive Order Prior to this Order refugees are already carefully vetted for two or more years in most cases before being granted a visa There has not been one case of a terrorist incident caused by a refugee There is no evidence based reason for this Executive Order as it does absolutely nothing to make America safer Tragically murders and killing occur regularly in this country but by our own citizens not refugees A recurrent theme in the Torah is that we came out of Egypt The history of the Jewish people is that of fleeing oppression famine and poverty Abraham and his family Jacob and his sons Moses Joshua the Hebrew slaves the Jewish exiles from Babylonia and Rome and the millions of Jews fleeing the Soviet Union in the 1980 s all Jewish refugees We look to the Statue of Liberty and its inscription by Emma Lazarus as the ultimate symbol of America s welcome to refugees In the 1920 s probably as a reaction to the influx in the early 20th century of so many refugees deemed to be undesirables specifically Italians Jews and Eastern Europeans Congress passed the McCarran Walter Act severely limiting immigration When Hitler began his Final Solution Jews were unable seek refuge in America The immigrants sent back to their country of origin recently reminded me of the St Louis that sailed to America full of Jewish refugees only to be denied entry and forced to turn around and take its passengers back to Nazi Europe and the extermination camps As a reaction to the horror resulting from its immigration policies America liberalized those policies again welcoming immigrants all to the benefit economically and culturally of our country The United States already has a serious vetting process but not based on religion Modern America until this latest Executive Order welcomed refugees Bill Heller T he P r e s i d e n t s executive order does not contain a religion test only a nationality test There are at least fifty one countries in the world with majority Muslim populations twenty of which each have over five million Muslim citizens The executive order applies to just seven countries Clearly if the order contained a religious test it would have to cover many more countries or would not have to mention any countries at all just a particular religion Most impor tantly the executive order is temporary for the purpose of allowing time to put proper vetting March 2017 procedures in place Nowhere is this mentioned or even hinted at in most statements protesting the order I think it is beyond question that the order has at its foundation the desire to prevent terrorists from coming into this country under the guise of refugees The attempt by some Jewish organizations to compare this order to the failure to rescue Jews in the 1930 s and early 1940 s is superficially plausible but actually quite wrong There are almost no similarities I have read many books and articles about the Holocaust and the failure of the US the Pope and others to act to save Jews Not once was it alleged that the Jews were not helped because they might be terrorists A few Communists perhaps but that was just a subset of the real reason blatant antisemitism Are there Islamophobes in this country yes But to tie this order to the Jewish issue 80 years ago is to ascribe Islamophobia to the President of the United States His job is to keep our country safe not to make sure that every American agrees with his every move In 2001 most refugee resettlement was suspended for 3 months while security procedures were reviewed More recently in 2011 the processing of refugees from Iraq was suspended for six months Page 4 while vetting procedures were reviewed I do not recall hearing any Jewish protests either time Refugees continue to come into our country daily from countries all over the world The process of coming to America is often a long one As Jews we should remember that as recently as the late 1980 s and early 1990 s during the wave of resettlement from the former Soviet Union our people lived in resettlement camps in Italy for many months waiting for permission to enter our country Patience is what is needed as we reflect on this Executive Order www parksynagogue org
