What’s fascinating is how the treatment of Kanter stands in stark contrast to the treatment of thousands of other Muslims and Americans who were detained because of the president’s Muslim ban earlier this year.
Sens. Inhofe and Lankford, both Republicans, hardly opposed the president’s initial Muslim ban in January. In a statement, Inhofe praised Executive Order 13769, which suspended the entry of Syrian refugees and blocked the entry of people traveling from Muslim-majority countries Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. The night the Muslim ban was struck down by the 9th Circuit Court, Lankford was on CNN saying he believed the president had the right to enact such a policy.
