We've all heard of Donald Trump's plans to ban Syrian refugees and impose "extreme vetting" on immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.
Here are just a few of things that would never have existed if people from Muslim-majority states were banned from the United States.
Your life would have been completely different.
1. Mr. Robot
Both the producer and the lead actor in the American drama-thriller Mr. Robot are of Egyptian origins.
Created by Sam Esmail, the show has garnered the likes of millions of people inside the US and globally.
Rami Malek doesn't fall short of executing the role perfectly.
How would people in the US (and USA Network) have survived without binge-watching this amazing show?
2. Apple (that iPhone in your hand)
Steve Jobs, the founder and ground-breaking innovator, founded Apple and changed the lives of millions since.
Jobs is in fact of Syrian descent, born to Abdulfattah Jandali, a Syrian Muslim.
It's not just Jobs, though. Lebanese Tony Fadell was also one of the guys behind the creation of both the iPod and iPhone being dubbed as "one of the fathers of the iPod."
Fadell also founded Nest Labs, a smart home tech company that was acquired by Google for $3.2 billion.
Where would technology advancement stand in the US if it weren't for these?
3. Lawrence of Arabia
Legendary Egyptian actor Omar Sharif is widely known for his role in Lawrence of Arabia (1962), where he played the iconic Sherif Ali.
Sharif also makes it big in "Doctor Zhivago" -- a British-Italian film considered to be one of the most epic motion pictures in history. As of 2016, the film was the eighth highest-grossing film of all time in the United States.
Oh how the US economy would have suffered.
4. Legendary literary works like The Prophet
Lebanese-American artist, poet and writer Kahlil Gibran changed the lives of millions through his legendary literary work.
Gibran is most widely known for The Prophet, one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century in the United States.
It was even adapted into a film produced by Salma Hayek (of Lebanese descent, too!).
Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi.
An array of artists including Elvis Presley, The Beatles and John Lennon were inspired by Gibran's iconic work -- drawing inspiration from various passages into their own music.
If he hadn't migrated to the US from Lebanon (currently Muslim majority) ... where would literary teachings in the US draw inspiration from?
Lebanese film producer Mario Kassar founded Carolco Pictures, which produced a number of blockbuster movies (Terminator 2, Total Recall) -- some of which have garnered over $250 million worldwide at the box office.
Kassar then invested loads of money to buy the option rights to David Morrell's 1972 novel, First Blood (aka Rambo) which ultimately made $125 million.
Kassar then executive produced the following two Rambo sequels.
6. Prison Break
Did you know Wentworth Miller's, the lead actor in Prison Break, father is of Lebanese and Syrian ancestry?
Well, it's true!
How would Prison Break would have come about if it weren't for Miller's gorgeous face?
7. Shaggy from "Scooby-Doo"
Kemal Amin "Casey" Kasem is the man behind the iconic "Shaggy" in the Scooby-Doo franchise in 1969.
Kasem's parents are Lebanese Druze immigrants who settled in Michigan before Kasem was born.
Lebanese-American Tony Shalhoub made it out big in Hollywood after his role in the TV series "Monk" for which he won numerous awards including a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor.
9. Lady Gaga's famous "Poker Face"
Moroccan-Swedish record producer Nadir Khayat has worked with a number of high profile artists in the music industry over the years.
Known by his stage name RedOne, Khayat co-wrote and produced Lady Gaga's hit song Poker Face in 2008.
The song is the best-selling single of 2009 worldwide, with over 9.5 million in sales.
RedOne has also worked with Michael Jackson, U2, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Mariah Carey among many others.
