…there is a law allowing Trump to shut off immigration from certain countries and deport those deemed inimical to the USA.
Wouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the presidential campaign, if one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, D.C., ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?”
During the campaign season, Trump was criticized for suggesting that the country could deport anyone considered to be hostile to America.
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 our president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.
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, immigrants or non- immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”
Who was president when this was passed? Democrat Harry Truman.
Who do you suppose last used this process? Democrat Jimmy Carter,
no less than 37 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States.
But Carter actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. 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 do you say about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democratic senators, representatives and the Obama Administration?
Isn’t that terrible? Good Ole Jimmuh, God fearin’, home building Prez of the people heaving all those ragheads out of the country. That’s worth another can of Billy beer.
But there is a bit more. And it is quite important, to wit: One could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims should or could be refused immigration to OUR country.
