Look: People Are Going in on Donald Trump for Disgusting Muslim Registration System

A move eerily similar to that of Hitler.

Published November 16, 2016

In immigration adviser for Donald Trump is reportedly in the process of drafting a proposal for a registration system for all immigrants from Muslim countries.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — who is rumored to be in the running for attorney general — confirmed that Trump’s policy advisers are discussing implementing the Muslim registry in the future.

In the past, Trump has spoken about creating a plan to register all Muslim immigrants, although politicians from both sides of the isle have vehemently opposed the idea.

The Muslim registration would give Muslims a unique form of identification that specifies their religion. According to Donald Trump, this is a crucial aspect of his “extreme vetting” of Muslims.

During George W. Bush’s presidency, Kobach helped design a similar program in response to 9/11. However, the system was abandoned in 2011 because critics felt it unfairly targeted immigrants.

Although Trump and his team believe this is a necessary step ensure national security, people on Twitter are drawing the parallels between his system and the Jewish registration system implemented by Hitler. 

  1. Many fear the worst
  2. Some non-Muslims are even pledging to register, just to flood the system
  3. And several see this as phase 1 of an alt-right white house
