Wouldn’t it have been interesting if at some point during the presidential campaign one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, D.C., ever heard of theMcCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?“
I did not know of this act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.
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 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 ofc 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 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 theMcCarran-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? DemocratHarry 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.
ButCarteractually 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?
Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Actalso requires thatan “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”
Therefore, one could surmise that since thequran forbids muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL muslims should or could be refused immigration to OUR country.

http://library.uwb.edu/Static/ USimmigration/ USimmigrationlegislation.html U.S.immigration/1952_ immigration and_nationality_ act.html With ALL the ‘laws’ passed by BOTH sides of the aisle, it would seem that BOTH would have researched to look for any and all that would apply to immigration before making fools of themselves, especially the Demo-RATS. But their ‘minds’ are on other things, like taking bribes, selling off the nation’s defense secrets to pad their bank accounts, their next visit to Pizzagate, the next planned vacation on us taxpayers. Do you suppose we could create a law to DEPORT with PENALTIES those in ‘government’ positions who are there only for their own PROFITS and NOT for the BENEFIT of the PEOPLE and our NATION?! Oh, well, welcome to Ameri-KA.
