Executive Order, January 27: “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.”

syrian-refugees-sitting-reuterssyrian-refugees2Rather than trying to explain this rather legalistic document myself, I suggest that you read an excellent analysis presented by POWERLINE BLOG.

Read the entire analysis, but I’ll excerpt a bit of it here:

Information is to be gathered, reviewed and summarized during the periods of suspension so that policy can be conformed to the national interest of the United States. Indeed, the order focuses throughout on the national interest of the United, as in this provision that will never be quoted in a New York Times story:

Sec. 1: …In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.
You mean we aren’t already doing this? We must be out of our minds.

Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from foreign nationals who intend to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; and to prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes.
You mean we aren’t already doing this? We must be out of our minds.

As the author (Scott Johnson) suggests, it is worth reading the entire order. As he also says, the reform of visa, refugee and immigration policy implicit in the terms of the executive order are, to say the least, long overdue.

Read the text HERE.

Johnson points out that the NYT’s authors say that the Order give priority to Christian refugees, although I don’t see that in the Executive Order. Perhaps there is an additional Order. This kind of confusion happened with the two Executive Orders regarding illegal immigration issued on January 25.

    They are stopping people with green cards! Not in the EO that I could find. They live here, work here and have families here. DHS spokesman says green cards included. This is going to cause major riots.

      In a briefing for reporters on Saturday, White House officials said that green card holders from the seven affected countries who are outside the United States would need a case-by-case waiver to return to the United States.

      So they are stopping non-citizens from the seven countries, even if they have a green card, and will issue waivers on a case-by-case basis. I don’t see a problem. They are also advising green card holders in the U.S. from these countries to check with a consular representative before leaving the country.

      To me the point is that we must protect the citizens of the USA first, then vet permanent residents, then refugees.

    One question that I have been asking elsewhere.
    America has been having its own little, actually big refugee problem for several decades now. Think about it our Illegals are Refugees of South and North American. Middle Eastern Refugees are almost the same as our Illegals. I mean the Illegals spout almost the exact same reasons for fleeing to America.
    Why isn’t the UN urging the Europeans to equal out the load a bit. Right now I do believe that we have way more Refugees/Illegals that all of Europe.

    But the real question I have and have had for many years is
    “When The H3LL Do We Start Taking Care of America and Americans”

    Very interesting. Uncovering more “fake news”

    Obama’s administration made the “Muslim ban” possible and the media won’t tell you

    https://sethfrantzman.com/2017/01/28/obamas-administration-made-the-muslim-ban-possible-and-the-media-wont-tell-you/

    But, wait a sec. According to the reports “The order bars all people hailing from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.” Critics had attacked Trump for selecting these seven countries and not selecting other states “linked to his sprawling business empire.” Bloomberg and Forbes bought into this.

    But, wait a sec. I read the order and Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are not mentioned in it.

    Go back and read it again. Do a “ctrl-f” to find “Iraq”. Where is “Iraq” in the order. It’s not there. Only Syria is there. So where are the seven nations? Where is the “Muslim ban”? It turns out this was a form of fake news, or alternative facts. Trump didn’t select seven “Muslim-majority” countries. US President Barack Obama’s administration selected these seven Muslim-majority countries.

    In February 2016 “The Department of Homeland Security today announced that it is continuing its implementation of the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 with the addition of Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as three countries of concern, limiting Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals who have traveled to these countries.” It noted “the three additional countries designated today join Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria as countries subject to restrictions for Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals.” It was the US policy under Obama to restrict and target people “who have been present in Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, at any time on or after March 1, 2011 (with limited government/military exceptions).” This was text of the US Customs and Border Protection in 2015 relating to “the Visa Waiver Program and Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015“. The link even includes the seven nation list in it: “Iraq, Syria, Iran, SUdan, Somalia or Yemen.” And the media knew this back in May 2016 when some civil rights groups complained about it.

      Wow–
      Damn remember when Obama first came in and kept pointing the finger at GW.
      Sad but do you realize what will happen if any Trump people blamed it on Obama; no one will listen.
      Obama messed up America way more than most Americans know, even the ones that voted for Trump. I do believe that if Hillary had won, Obama and his people would have completed their plan of destroying America and the good upstanding American citizens of America.

    Let’s pare this back to its roots: we can not effectively check the backgrounds of the overwhelming majority of these Moslem ‘immigrants’. Period.
    I was a Special Security Officer, DIA trained and certified, and clearing Ameticans fir SCI access was a pain while we still had an agency dedicated to just doing that. Clinton destroyed it, threw the job to those civilian contractors who botched it so badly, then it was given yonthe EEO/Welfare to Work garbage agency, OPM. My final two TS/SCI bring-ups were done by OPM and when I contacted the previous employers and my references NONE were ever contacted by any investigator. When two friends whom I’d used ascreferences and had in turn used me checked – same thing, no one ever contacted any body. One investigstor told me, off the cuff, that as I’d had a unbroken TS clearance for over twenty years and that the poor investigators were overworked they probably just pencil whipped it as I looked good.
    Now let’s look at the investigstors chosen to clear Moslem immigrants from broken countries that can’t even clear goats from the streets, what kind of longterm records infrastructure did they have BEFORE everyone started bombing and shooting up the country? Then we hsve the Feds adding a battalion of new investigators, as if a good investigator can be made out of an ex Mickey Ds fry cook in an eight week course. Investigators who do not speak the languages, never mind the dialects and who were given a POtuS order to cut the vetting period from months to weeks, and whatcha got?
    Don’t even try to tell me ISIA, AQ or whoever isn’t training plants in how to get past expert interviewers never mind TSA dropouts. You could say you can’t stop all the terrorists but that’s no excuse to allow them in wholesale.
    The CIA had its and the Brits’ programs in South/Central America blown, at one time, by Cuban double agents that fooled well-trained interrogators who were clearing them for operations. How the **** can ‘eight week wonders’ fresh out of a can’t-fail program stop plants? Not as it a ****load ain’t already here.

    The liberal girls were picketing at the airports today holding up big banners

    REFUGEES WELCOMED

    The rush came across my mind of the same situation with the German girls welcoming the Refugees

    This is one of the DemocRats disconnect with the American people

    Republicans have the American families ~ people and kids and their safety and well being as their main concern when it comes to refugees coming to the USA

    The DemocRats are concerned about the refugees and could careless about the American people

      Silly rabbit. Of course it can be copied (Need to clean up the HTML out of it though):

      The Muslim Brotherhood organization, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has been announcing on their Facebook and Twitter pages that they are going to reverse President Trump’s recent immigration orders.
      How? Primarily via Christian and Jewish groups who have been participating in the Brotherhood creation, Interfaith.
      Interfaith is a well-planned strategy created in the 1980’s to infiltrate non-Muslim religious groups in order to feed them false information about Islam and to indoctrinate them into believing Islam is peaceful and harmless, but also, primarily to use these groups to advance their pro-Islamic agenda.
      When CAIR needs signatures, they target Jewish and Christian groups that have been fully indoctrinated by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Interfaith strategy.
      For example, when CAIR wants to implement a Muslim lane at a supermarket (where the checkout clerk refuses to touch pork or alcohol), CAIR petitions local law makers. CAIR will attain 50 or more signatures on these petitions, in which every signature is a leader of a Christian or Jewish group. The Christian and Jewish groups that belong to these Interfaith groups think they are fighting “discrimination”, but they are being propagandized and exploited. And in reality, they are taking away YOUR rights.
      CAIR also uses this tactic when they want crosses removed (because crosses offend Muslims) or when they want private “prayer rooms” for employees; thus enabling Muslim employees to be allowed more breaks than non-Muslim employees.
      Now CAIR is doing the same strategy, rallying non-Muslim groups, primarily Interfaith groups, to sign petitions and to attend town hall meetings and rallies at various state capitals, demanding Trump’s immigration orders be stopped.
      CAIR national, and all of their state branches, plus some of their city branches, such as CAIR San Francisco, CAIR San Diego, CAIR Philadelphia, CAIR Chicago, CAIR Dallas-Ft. Worth, to name just a few, have all joined this new campaign to rally people to remove Trump’s immigration orders and also stop Trump’s plan to vet “refugees” more carefully.
      So far, the CAIR state branches that I’ve seen who are massively promoting this fight against Trump’s orders, are Alabama, Washington, Missouri, California, Arizona, Louisiana, Texas, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, New York, and Pennsylvania. But they were adding new states quite rapidly, so I’m sure this list is growing as I write this. I am positive that CAIR will soon have every one of its state branches participating in this campaign.
      CAIR has been announcing Town Hall Meetings, targeting local representatives, but they are also announcing meetings with representatives at your state capitals.
      You must combat this by contacting your state and local representatives and let them know you support President Trump in his endeavors to protect America and its citizens via his Immigration order and his Extreme Vetting proposal.
      CAIR National, its state branches, and other Muslim Brotherhood groups such as ICNA, ISNA and MPAC — all powerful Muslim Brotherhood organizations — are all promoting this campaign against Trump.

      Every one of these organizations have powerful “media campaigns”. Some even have “journalist guides” for your local TV stations and newspapers. The media will be hijacked into participating in this campaign. So you must contact your local media as well as mainstream media when you see them spreading biased reporting making it out that the majority of American are against Trump’s immigration orders.
      Thanks to the Internet, its easy to find the email address and phone numbers of your state and local representatives. Contact them and let them know you support Trump regarding his Immigration Order and Extreme Vetting.
      Also contact your local media, as well as mainstream media.
      Contact your local Town Hall and your State Capitol to see if there is a rally or meeting being planned.

      Only YOU can combat CAIR.

    Our NOLA mayor Mitch Landrieu was on CN today explaining how the city’s not a sanctuary city. It’s following a policy of ‘arrest criminals’ and not arresting people on immigration violations, after all the PD’s operating on a Federal consent decree and they can’t profile. Of course the large Latino, post-Katrina population, their political organizations and the profusion of Latino TV and radioa stations have nothing to do with it. Neither does the archdiocese and it’s long connection with the illegal Latino Catholic community.
    No no, hizonnah da mayor reiterated his deep commitment to fighting violent crime (they sorta done give up on lesser crimes) instead of policing honest, hardworking Catholic Latino illegal aliens. Again, that salves the denial of those who’ve moved here since Katrina but those of us who’ve been here a loooooong time just take city government promises to lower violent crime as part of the background noise. After all, the Usual Suspect groups that so heavily whine about Da Man hassling their innocent young mens just out for an innocent walk…at 3 AM…in a high crime area…carrying a gun… vote too.

      Federal immigration law also includes Section 1182(f), which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate” (emphasis added).

    CTH analysis is very good and well explained:

    In 2013 President Obama suspended refugees from Iraq for six months. • In 2015 Congress passed, and Obama signed, a law restricting visas from states of concern; • and in 2016 Obama’s DHS, Jeh Johnson, expanded those restrictions. …. all President Trump is doing is taking the same action as Obama 2013, and applying Visa restrictions to the nation states Obama selected in 2015 and 2016.

    A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York issued an emergency stay on Saturday that temporarily blocks the U.S. government from sending people out of the country after they have landed at a U.S. airport with valid visas.

    The American Civil Liberties Union estimates the stay will affect 100 to 200 people detained at U.S. airports or intransit, but government lawyers could not confirm that number.

    The ruling by Judge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Courtfor the Eastern District of New York came during a hearing called after President Donald Trump issued an executive order blocking people from seven Muslim-majority from entering the United States and putting a temporary halt to refugee admissions.

    What is this nonsense I am reading about Mo Farah telling his children maybe he can’t come home ? He is a UK citizen even though he was born in Somalia. He and his family live in the USA. All emotional manipulation to further incite the ignorant Soros crowd.

    And Mo is apparently willing to terrify his children to push an agenda.

    “It’s deeply troubling,” the 33-year-old Farah said in a statement on his Facebook page, “that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home — to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.”

    Farah has a British passport and does not have dual nationality or hold a Somalian passport.

      CNN and others are still referring to it as “Trump’s list” even though the countries are not named in the EO. It is “Obama’s list”.
