Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
Donald Trump is an out-of-control megalomaniac ready to turn the country into an unconstitutional anti-religious concentration camp with his announcement to keep muslim immigrants and visitors out just because there are tens of millions of unhappy ones who are confused about life and want in.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The most recent president to exercise U.S statute on the subject was democrat Jimmy Carter, who in 1972 used 8 USC §1182 to summarily block the entry of anyone from Iran. Previously it had been used to block anyone who might have been a communist. The statute grants power to the president in plain English:
8 USC §1182 (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President. 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.
(Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, enacted June 27, 1952, also known as the McCarran-Walter Act.)
Some libertarian friends hold a utopian dream that we should live in a society without borders, admit anyone, and fail to notice that the nation-state system we do live in makes sense, and we need to defend borders for good reason — to keep out people who would do us harm, take all our stuff and kill us if we didn’t protect what’s ours. This is why we need fine and robust border-enforcement laws like the one described here.
I started the list because I noticed, despite the blind ignorant media ranting about Trump wanting to keep out muslims and especially those from jihadi infested cesspools in the middle east who want us all dead, that’s already law and has been exercised by their darlings, the democrats.
