Former Vice President Dick Cheney argued against Donald Trump’s position on closing our borders to new incoming Muslim refugees saying, “this whole notion that somehow we can just say, ‘No more Muslims,’ and just ban a whole religion, goes against everything we stand for and believe in” on Monday’s Hugh Hewitt Show.

Cheney said, “I think this whole notion that somehow we can just say, ‘No more Muslims,’ and just ban a whole religion, goes against everything we stand for and believe in. I mean,religious freedom’s been a very important part of our history and where we — where it came from, a lot of people here — my ancestors got here because they were Puritans. Wasn’t anybody here then, when they came. It’s a mistaken notion.”

Chaney did agree that making sure refugees are not ISIS supporters, or members is “a serious problem.”

Cheney added, “You’ve got to set up a vetting process, and that’s crucial.”

He attributed the root causes of the refugee crisis to the lack of U.S. leadership, the quick rate that ISIS grew, and the Syrian civil war. Chaney suggested establishing a safe zone in Syria with “sufficient forces, hopefully of locals” makes sense, “a lot more sense than what’s happening now.”

  1. He wants to ban them temporarily. I think we should close the borders to everyone until we get things straightened out here. I know this won’t happen and would be hard to implement but safety and resources should go to Americans first, then immigrants/refugees etc. We have to many homeless vets who served this country that should be at the front of any line be it housing, healthcare, jobs, food. We have homeless children that should be helped first not refugees. Most of all this is a keep America safe issue from folks who have no morals or respect for life that wants to kill all of us. JMO

  2. its not just syrians, in fact its mostly others trying to get in here and dont say you dont know that, and the people who are coming have mostly left the children home to starve, what s wrong with you people, do you relly think we are that stupid, you must because you think you are going to get away with this and islam is not a religion, so quit trying to spoonfeed us your obama bullcrap-
