Does the 14 Amendment to the USA Constitution Bar President Donald Trump from Stopping Muslim Immigrants ? No.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the USA Constitution - passed after the Civil War - was in effect the embodiment of our "Second Revolution." It imposed restrictions on the several States, and made Americans, legally, a more unified Polity with "Unalienable Rights" which even the states could not deny.

The text of this great amendment is as follows:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

But what is to be noted is the fact that the Seven (7) Muslim majority countries are neither Citizens, nor Persons, of the United States of America. Accordingly, President Donald Trump has the Constitutional authority to Discriminate against them on the grounds that Some are possible Terrorists. In particular, the people in these countries do not have the Protection of (1) Due Process, and (2) Equal Protection, which our marvelous constitution recognizes as belonging to every Citizen and Person WITHIN the Jurisdiction of the United States of America. To believe that Foreigners, in their Own Countries have a Right not to be discriminated against as Muslims, and to be able to Visit, or Immigrate, to the United States of America, is simply mistaken. And for the USA to allow Millions, or 100,000's of Muslims to come here, is simply to be blind to the reality to no Muslim Majority Country in the world of the 57 league of Muslim majority countries, has been able to create a viable modern functioning state - with Religious Liberty; one example of this is the fact that streem of populations is Out of Islam, and into Everywhere Else.
