Muslims, ISIS aren’t the real threats to US

February 3, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I don’t understand this Trump ban on Muslims. We have had no successful terror attacks by a foreign terrorist since Sept. 11, 2001. Our national security agencies have done their jobs of keeping us safe to absolute perfection. No Americans killed by foreign...
