Dan Proft: Save Asia Bibi
The most profound action related to immigration President Trump can take at present has nothing to do with walls, troops or 9th Circuit pronouncements. It’s to extend religious asylum to a Pakistani woman named Asia Bibi and her family. You may have heard her story: Bibi survived eight years in a Pakistani gulag with the prospect of execution hanging over her head like the Sword of Damocles each day. Her crime: being a Christian. The Pakistani Supreme Court acquitted her, and declared her innocent. Since being released, she and her family are under constant threat of assassination by the Islamofascists who’ve overrun Pakistan. In a shameful episode of cowardice, self-declared pluralists in the West have turned a deaf ear to Bibi. The administration should provide a tutorial for Trump-haters and the DC press corps on the difference between economic migrants and asylum-seekers. We should provide her—and her family—asylum immediately. Mr. President, save Asia Bibi.
