After the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Donald Trump bellowed, “The bottom line is that the only reason the killer was in America in the first place, was because we allowed his family to come here.” I suppose Trump is right, but is his proposal to ban all Muslims the right solution?
Maybe, but then let’s look at the Orlando massacre from another angle. If Joseph Ibrahim’s father, a Muslim, had not emigrated to the U.S. from Egypt, there may have been one less trauma surgeon available to help save the lives of those who were wounded at the Pulse nightclub. You see, Ibrahim heads the trauma unit at Orlando Regional Medical Center where 44 of the wounded victims were taken and was one of the surgeons who provided emergency medical care the night of the shooting.
Note to Trump: perhaps we should assess people one at a time.
