Dear Editor,

Donald Trump in his executive order banned all Syrian refugees (mostly Muslim), from resettlement in the United States.

Although under international law countries are not required to resettle refugees within their sovereign territories, the “International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights,” a treaty from 1976, prohibits discriminatory laws, such as resettlement limits, on the basis of religion or national origin.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Trump's visa bans "violate our basic principles and these measures should be removed sooner rather than later."

These bad omens of Trump, as exemplified with his extortion of neighboring Mexico vis-a-vis the building of a wall, suggest that the only one who should be deported is Trump.

Sincerely,

Joseph N. Manago
