And that's fine, and noble, and nice of you. But understand very,
VERY clearly: they will not hesitate to do that to you.
If you're not a (a) white (b) Christian (c) American citizen then you're
going to be targeted. It's not a question of "if", only of "when".
(And some people who are all three will be targeted anyway: women,
LBGTQ, journalists, academics, scientists come to mind immediately.)
When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag
and carrying a cross.

This current episode is just a test to see what kind of reaction ensues.
It's a probe for weaknesses. It has NOTHING to do with stopping terrorism:
in fact, it's designed to increase the probability of attacks -- because
that will make subsequent steps much easier. (Note the careful exemption
of majority-Muslim countries in which Trump owns hotels/resorts.)
