Burqa Ban – For the Greater Good?

With the surge of asylum seeker in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for a ban on full-faced vein’s “wherever possible.”Based on the Statista poll below, more than half of the Germans polled voted in favor the ban, while more than half of the Americans poll voted for people having the choice to choose their clothing.

From an American perspective who is not surprised by the American results, my thought is that dressing a certain way does not mean you are going to act a certain way; actions define us more than our clothing. Likewise, wearing a burqa won’t mean that you are a terrorist or are affiliated with them.

As attitudes change towards immigration both in the United States and abroad, I wonder how this ban will affect the country’s security. Will immigration-related crimes go down? Will this bill inspire more anti-Muslim sentiments?
