Trump action was no 'ban'

This is another case of the media delivering misinformation. How is the executive order a ban on Muslims? It specifically targets seven countries that export terror and temporarily bans visas from those countries until the process can be tightened. Additionally it stops refugees entering the country until that process can be tightened. And the former administration named these countries as dangerous countries ("In tweets, Trump defends immigration order amid questions and confusion," Jan. 30).

But citizens from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia (basically majority Muslim countries) may obtain visas. So how is this a Muslim ban? The Sun's coverage has been inflammatory and incorrect ("Don't let Trump re-write America's values," Jan. 30). Once again, our former administration did something similar with Iraq. Why? Because they had allowed in dangerous individuals who plotted an attack in Kentucky. I don't remember reading about your outrage then.

I realize this is the editorial page and it expresses your opinions. But when those opinions lie about the truth then it's time to end my subscription. I had thought about canceling in the past but now you made the decision easy.
