I guess my concern is who is writing the report and what kind of details are verified before publishing. If the current administration doesn't even want certain agencies to communicate with the people - why this specific item? The ease of use for propaganda is high.
The meme was to just identify what spawned my initial digging into the EO - it wasn't meant to really be the source of the topic.
I think it's a really interesting issue, and you really hit on the crux of the problem. The ease of use for propaganda is
high. That, and the fact that it in some ways seems to resemble certain propaganda that you highlighted by posting that meme should
cause an immediate reaction. As a society, such things should
raise red flags and make us say, "whoa, wait a minute. Let's take a closer look here."
But once we do take a closer look, I come down where Stadler does on the issue. Because there is a potential for abuse doesn't mean that this is wrong--it just means we take a close look and be careful with it. As long as there is no actual abuse, this could actually be a positive in terms of educating the population as to why
more strictly enforcing the existing immigration laws is something that might be good for the country. And that being the case, I cannot really have much problem with this, at least on concept. That said, there may very well be problems in execution and/or how it is used. But we'll have to wait and see.
