A Donald Trump supporter cited on Wednesday the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, which is one of the darkest moments in American history, as the basis for creating a federal registry for immigrants from Muslim countries.
Retired Navy SEAL, Carl Highbie, had a few things to say in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, about having a Muslim registry for muslim’s living in the US.
This was after Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach stated earlier this week, that Trump’s policy advisers were thinking about instating a Muslim Registry.
“The president needs to protect America first, and if that means having people that are not protected under our Constitution have some sort of registry so we can understand ― until we can identify the true threat and where it’s coming from ― I support it,” said Higbie.
In an interview with Time, trump stated that he might have supported the internment of Japanese-Americans at the time. “I would have had to be there at the time to tell you, to give you a proper answer,” Trump told Time last December. “I certainly hate the concept of it. But I would have had to be there at the time to give you a proper answer.”
