Immigration Travel Ban
Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington DC do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in our country.
After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, President Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).
The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.
Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and former President Obama called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.
Without Congressional approval President Trump signed an Executive Order imposing a selective immigration ban which is authorized by existing law.
Ironically Former President Obama made a surprise visit to Hawaii the day before US District Judge Derrick Watson in Honolulu, an Obama Appointee, put President Trumps revised travel ban on hold after hearing arguments that the executive order discriminates on the basis of nationality.
Judge Watson believes Somalis and Yemenis have the same constitutional rights as American citizens.
As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.
Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the:
“Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.
The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”
Who do you suppose last used this process?
President Jimmy Carter a Democrat, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States. He made all Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government and then he deported a bunch of them back to Iran. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.
So, what say you about all of the criticism and obstruction that President Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama appointed Judge?
Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”
Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims should be refused immigration to our country.
