NEW YORK (NEWS10) – Former Navy SEAL and spokesman for the pro-Trump Great Again PAC told FOX News’ Megyn Kelly that a registry of immigrants from Muslim countries would be Constitutional.
Carl Higbie cites the Internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II as a precedent for the registry.
In an exchange on the Kelly File, Kelly told Higbie, “you can’t be citing Japanese internment camps as a precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do.”
Higbie says he isn’t proposing internment camps for Muslims, but the president needs to protect America first and supports the registry.

The Trump Administration is considering a measure to reinstate the registry of immigrants and visitors who enter the United States on visas from countries where extremist organizations are active.
