Trump's Call For Ban On Muslim Immigration Gets Sharp Reactions

[From article]
Nearly all Republicans, [are angry] over Donald Trump’s proposal to prevent Muslims from entering the United States.
[. . .]
One thing is certain: the wisdom of welcoming hundreds of thousands of Muslims as refugees and immigrants is on the table. Whether or not you believe the poll Trump cited, it is certain that some percentage of Muslims sympathize with ISIS, some want sharia law in the United States, and many hold deeply anti-Semitic views, as the Quran instructs them.
[. . .]
And I think it is a legitimate question if we should be adding large numbers of Muslims to our population, considering that it is a certainty that some percentage will hold views anathema to our civic values, and a smaller percentage will act violently in support of jihad. The Quran and Hadith are indisputably political as well as religious documents, and their politics are incompatible with the U.S. Constitution. And unlike other religions that have violence in their scriptures, Islam alone is on a violent quest for world domination.

So state governors cannot ban Muslim migrants but a mayor can ban a US citizen from traveling to his city? Is this a college student's new standard of behavior?
