The ongoing protests that broke out Saturday at JFK International, Dulles, and airports around the country certainly gave the impression that the majority of Americans vigorously oppose Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban. Heck, even Canada weighed in in disgust, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau subtweeting Trump and inviting any and all refugees to head north, where they’d be welcomed with open arms.
Now the question everyone’s asking is, what about “former” jihadists who defected from ISIS? Why do they think of the travel ban? Not surprisingly, several former members of the terrorist group who agreed to speak with the media agreed that Trump’s executive order would likely lead to a spike in ISIS recruitment.

Here’s an alternative headline for those who don’t care for CNN’s original:
@CNNPolitics This just in: ISIS intelligence leaks reveal the only way they can be defeated is by open borders and disarming americans.

@CNNPolitics It was a boon when he was running according to MSM & Hillary. How did their recruiting change?

@CNNPolitics yeah, now they're REALLY gonna hate us and REALLY try to kill us!!!

.@CNNPolitics Guess what? They don't need an excuse. We could open borders, and they would say,"They're taking our brothers!"

Wow, these former ISIS members sure are feeling talkative.

Five out of five current and former ISIS members interviewed by Western media agree: Trump’s rhetoric is good for recruitment.
@BuzzFeedNews shhh! Guy who supported torturing, burning, shooting, beheading innocents is giving his opinion!

That feeling when journalists interview and side with ISIS supporters to somehow show the right is crazy. @BuzzFeedNews

@BuzzFeedNews First a bogus dossier, now quoting an "anonymous" ISIS fighter. You need to review your sourcing.

National Review’s David French, who has been receiving a lot of well-deserved attention for his facts-over-hysteria analysis of the travel ban, laid out a challenge for BuzzFeed.
Hey guys, can y'all pinpoint the Obama rhetoric that caused ISIS to get so dangerous? Or maybe it doesn't matter what America does. https://t.co/sFUcsF4UcE

Dangerous? But just last year John Kerry said ISIS was “on the run.”
