The Sun has wrongfully claimed that Trump is seeking to ban Muslims from entering the country

Your editorial, "Dissent is not disloyalty" (Feb. 1), completely misleads your readers about the ban on people coming to the United States from certain countries.

You imply these people are being denied access because of their religion, that being Muslim. It also seems to indicate acting Attorney General Sally Yates was fired for speaking up.

The facts are these countries are known to support terrorists who want to do harm to Americans. The other fact is Ms. Yates opened her mouth to the press before she conferred with her boss, President Donald Trump. More importantly, all of these people need to be vetted so we know who wants to enter our country. Nowhere in the executive order does it say Muslims are being banned.

If I remember, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. complained to The Sun about a columnist, Michael Olesker, reporting fake news. Mr. Olesker eventually resigned from the newspaper when an internal review found multiple examples of columns where he had used material from other writers without proper attribution.

So maybe The Sun's publisher should ask members of the editorial board at The Sun to resign and stop trying to make President Trump look like a person trying to create unconstitutional executive orders.
