After the terrorist attacks on Paris and America agreeing to take in 10,000 refugees from the ISIS stronghold in Syria, Donald Trump has said that he has concerns about the Muslim community in the United States.
In an interview with Yahoo News, the GOP presidential candidate said he would consider a series of drastic measures to keep America safe.
“We’re going to have to do things that we never did before,” he said. “And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”
According to Yahoo News, Trump said that he wouldn’t rule out giving Muslims a special form of identification or putting their names in a system to track them.
“We’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” he continued. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”
Trump also said that if he were to be elected, he would deport any Syrian refugee that entered the United States under Obama’s rule, although the Obama Administration has said the extensive screening process for these refugees makes it safe to let them into the country.
“They’re going to be gone,” he said. “They will go back … I’ve said it before, in fact, and everyone hears what I say, including them, believe it or not. But if they’re here, they have to go back, because we cannot take a chance. You look at the migration, it’s young, strong men. We cannot take a chance that the people coming over here are going to be ISIS-affiliated.”
