On Fox News, broadcaster Mark Levin ranted cliches. You can’t bring certain individuals into the US, he yelled, because there is no way to check them out, or vet them. People come from countries with ineffective governments. Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov was likely a good little Uzbeki before America reached out and recruited him to come to the US.
That’s plain silly. Most Muslim arrivals likely don’t have criminal records on arrival. Enough of these Muslim immigrants devolve—or is it evolve?—from passive practitioners of Islam to a more “proactive” practice of the religion of peace in their host countries.
#JakeTapper wants to know if there's anything that could've prevented a killing spree by a Muslim foreigner invited to live in America. Doh!
