While appearing on “Fox and Friends” Sunday, co-host Tucker Carlson suggested rethinking immigration from Muslim countries in light of the recent attack against the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo.
Carlson suggested France is “having these problems because it has the largest Muslim population in Europe.” He then asked:
“Is it time to rethink immigration policies in Europe and––by the way, also here in North America––to pay attention to the country of origin. Is it a good idea to let a lot of people from countries where violent Islamism is rife come to this country? What do we get out of it?”

As I reported earlier, a number of people are calling for the deportation of Muslims and restrictions on Islam.
Some have gone even farther:

I'm not interested in unity marches or candle lit vigils or weeping in public and feeling sorry for myself. I want real change. Ban Islam!

There are many, many more tweets like those above.
It’s not the first time the subject has come up. In February 2014, BareNakedIslam said some in Denmark want to put a stop to Muslim immigration, citing the Copenhagen Post:
DF’s defence spokesperson Marie Krarup said that the time has come to completely halt Muslim immigration. “We should limit the size of the Muslim minority in Denmark,” Krarup wrote in a blog for Berlingske newspaper.
The post continued:
Anders Vistisen, number two on DF’s list of candidates for the European Parliament, agreed that the number of Muslims in Denmark should be limited.
DF’s citizenship spokesperson, Christian Langballe, couldn’t see how a total ban against Muslims could be put into place. “It is impractical to call a complete halt, but I think that Muslim immigration must be limited,” he told Berlingske.
Deputy party head Søren Espersen called calls by Holger Gorm Petersen, a local DF politician in Vejle to turn Muslims around at the border “silly and stupid”.
Is Carlson onto something? Pamela Geller recently observed that in just one year – 2013 – the Obama administration brought in nearly 300,000 immigrants from Muslim countries. Given what has happened in France, one has to ask: How many of those 300,000 are ready to commit the same type of attacks in the United States?
