After the bombings in Brussels Tuesday morning and the terrible loss of life, we can no longer say that this won’t happen here.
It has happened. Don’t forget what happened in Garland.
Immigration and terrorism are no longer separate problems. They are one and the same.

Donald Trump is the only candidate who addressed this when he started his campaign.
As Trump has said over and over, he wants only to put a limited stop to immigration until we figure out how to properly process these people.
Then anyone who wants to come to America can, only they will be legal.
Don’t forget that the terrorists have stated that they want to destroy America, through smaller bombings like the one in Brussels.
Trump understands this. He wants to stop it before it happens. He’ll have my vote.
Brussels proves that America needs Donald Trump and his direct, tough approach.
We don’t need a candidate who is the best liar.
This country lost four citizens at Benghazi and somebody should pay.
We can’t survive with a $18 trillion debt and continue to give foreign countries millions.

As a constituent, I was not happy with Sen. Ted Cruz’s comment about the bombings in Belgium.
As a constituent, I tried to email his Senate office, and I got a message that his email was full.
Dude, if you can’t even manage your email, do you really think you can manage the country?

Our “golfer-in-chief” enjoys his family spring break in a ruthless dictatorship while victims of Islamic terror bleed and die in Belgium.
The two leading candidates for the Republican nomination say we should patrol and secure “Muslim” neighborhoods.
My next-door neighbors are Muslim. So are families a couple of blocks down and some others a few streets over. And there’s a mosque five blocks from my house.
They all are nice folks, and I have visited the mosque at its open house more than once.
I’m also surrounded by a bunch of Christian families, too, nice folks as well. And there are seven or more churches within a mile of my house.
So is mine a “Muslim” neighborhood?
But the real question is: How is it that two such completely feckless idiots became the leading candidates of a major political party in America?

As a young Ahmadi Muslim, I condemn this barbaric attack in Brussels and offer my condolences to all the people affected by this senseless act.
Terrorism has no place in any religion, Islam being no different.
Islam at the very core means peace and teaches again and again that killing is inhumane, not allowed and has major consequences.
ISIS carried out these attacks as “revenge” for hatred. However, killing of the innocent, and killing, period, should never be the answer.
As a young Muslim growing up in this society, it’s terrifying to see how the name of Islam is being so extremely distorted and obfuscated to where people are getting the wrong impressions because of the acts of a handful of misguided people.

I am so saddened and upset that Jeb Bush would endorse “Taliban” Ted Cruz.
We need to preserve the separation of church and state!
