Further analysis of Trump’s, now paused, immigration ban has caused controversial debate. A clause in the order states that the protections of religious minorities is paramount. This roughly, translates that Trump wishes to focus on Christian’s in the middle east in order to allow them access to the United States. A religious test would have to be implemented in order to make the distinction between true Christians and those that are not currently practicing.
Our Verdict:This is an obvious violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution. Though, the ban has been restrained, this is still a concerning action of the President. He is abusing his power and the other branches of the government are going to eventually check him.
