Thoughts on important issues By: Daima Sheikh

Muslim immigrants be banned from the country

Jill Stein does not believe that all Muslim immigrants be banned from the country. She doesn't see Muslims as a threat and does not believe the wrong doing of one muslim means all Muslims are bad.

"Should Muslim immigrants be banned from entering the country until the government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists? stats discuss

Jill Stein’s answer: No, banning immigrants based on their religion is unconstitutional"


U.S. accepting Syrian refugees

Jill Stein believes that the U.S. should be accepting Syrian refugees. She believes that they should be saved from the war going on and she thinks that we should be accepting way more refugees than we have already accepted.

"My feeling is that [the ICE raids] border on a crime against humanity; I'm not sure they meet the definition of that, but I have to say emotionally, it's shocking and very disturbing that the Obama administration is raiding and deporting women and children who are fleeing violence and sending them back to a high probability of death," Stein told Truthout


Legalization of Marijuana

Jill Stein supports legalization of marijuana in all 50 states. She believes that there are other things out there that are more harmful than marijuana so it should be legalized.

"As president, I wouldn't want to remove all laws against all drug use. But marijuana is a drug that is dangerous because it's illegal. It isn't illegal because it's dangerous.There are drugs in use that are far more harmful than marijuana -- such as alcohol. Legalize marijuana and the dangers go away. Regulate it so that children can't buy it on the street corner."
