Interesting, a friend e-mailed this to me. Thought I’d share it.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during the
campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone
in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?
I did not know of this Act until recently, but it has been a law for
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,
Donald 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 our President called such a prohibition on immigration
As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that
the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on
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?
Why it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979,
to keep Iranians out of the United States.
But he 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 say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received
from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama
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.
