Fact Checking Trump's Claim "Obama did it too"

We're hearing a lot of chatter from those defending this middle eastern immigration and travel ban.

They are all repeating the same thing as if on cue, "Obama did it" or "You all are just mad because Trump did it".

These sound like potentially valid responses.
Valid that is if the facts of this matter are completely and thoroughly ignored.

"Trumpís comparison of his immigration actions to Obamaís policy in 2011 is a faulty one. The fact is that the Obama administration was responding to a known and specific threat from one country and limited its response to refugees from that country, while Trumpís order temporarily bans refugees from all countries ó indefinitely in the case of those from Syria ó and temporarily bars all other visitors from seven predominately Muslim countries."

10. Strange, isn't it?

Suddenly emulating President Obama is A-OK with Trump's supporters. Surprised they don't all have to wear cervical collars from all the whiplash they must sustain, changing direction like that.

6. NOT JUST REFUGEES

What people are failing to talk about is that Trump's ban was not only for refugees, it was for people with Green Cards. Totally different. People with green cards aren't necessarily refugees, many of these people had been living in the US for years and were just home for a visit.
