In case it wasn’t obvious, my grandparents are not terrorists. If being a great gardener, generosity, walking barefoot across land to earn for your family, and going across the world alone to look for a better future is some form of terrorism, then I must be behind the times.
Trump’s Muslim ban (because let’s be honest, that’s exactly what it is) cannot be excused with laughter, however. These are real people’s lives. I am glad I am not faced with American border control, with my stamps from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, but being British with a red passport brings a privilege that can skip me extra questions.
Watch my video to hear my account of exactly why my grandparents terrify me. Prepare to be shocked; it’s difficult stuff.
