Default The Past SIX Presidents Have “Banned Immigrants”

BREAKING : The Past SIX Presidents Have “Banned Immigrants” – TruthFeed

Quote:
Obama has barred huge groups of potentially dangerous immigrants from entering the United States at least six times, undercutting his claim that barring Muslims from terrorist countries as Donald Trump has proposed is un-American.

In his first ban, according to a search of White House records, Obama instituted a ban on “immigrants or nonimmigrants” covered by a larger United Nations travel ban. He also included those on an economic sanctions list. Most countries were Muslim.

He cited the very same section of law that many critics of his policies have asked him to use, “section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.” It says, “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 period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrant’s or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

He used the same provision five other times, one more in 2011, twice in 2012 and twice in 2014. In those, he targeted people aiding Iran, Syria, Crimea, and those involved in war crimes.

Still, in his latest tirade against Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims from terror nations, Obama said such bans violate the American way.

In reaction to the Orlando terror attack, Trump said, “When I’m elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies until we fully understand how to end these threats.”

Obama ripped him. “That’s not the America we want,” he said. “It doesn’t reflect our democratic ideals. It will make us less safe.”

White House documents also show that former President Bill Clinton issued six immigrant bans; George W. Bush six immigrant bans; and former President Ronald Reagan four. And in 1980, former President Jimmy Carter banned Iranians after Tehran seized the U.S. embassy.

Below are Obama’s actions:

— July 25, 2011. Barred those under a UN travel ban, or who broke 29 executive orders covering transactions with terrorists.

— Aug. 4, 2012. Banned anybody involved in war crimes, or just about any other crime including human rights violations.

— April 23, 2012. Barred those helping Syria or Iran, or involved in human rights abuses for those governments.

— May 1, 2012. Another block on those helping Iran and Syria.

— April 3, 2014. Banned anyone known to threaten South Sudan.

— March 6, 2014 . Barred entry of those claiming government authority in the Crimea region of Ukraine, presumably on behalf of Moscow.
Democrats are nothing but a pack of howling hypocrites. Of course we knew that already.

Interesting that Obama barred those helping Syria and Iran, then he did both.

Pack, howling, hypocrites. The new Democrat party.

Just for giggles, here's the April 2012 EO. Worth a read.

An excerpt from the May 1 2012 EO.

(ii) has facilitated deceptive transactions for or on behalf of any person subject to United States sanctions concerning Iran or Syria;

Sounds like the Obama/Iran cash giveaway.

Obama should be barred from entry.

False equivalencies and lies as usual from the right.

The list Obama had developed was a list of places that were deemed to potentially be troubling and were not places that we had diplomatic ties to, or a certain level of trust.

The goal wasn't to form a list of 'possible trouble spots' like Trump is treating it. It was a list of places that would be unable to issue visa waivers.

From wikipedia: The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is a program of the United States Government which allows citizens of specific countries to travel to the United States for tourism, business, or while in transit for up to 90 days without having to obtain a visa.

So, this was a list of places where we were concerned but also did not trust those governments to vet people themselves. So, in effect, what it did was force anyone from those countries to apply directly to the US for a visa, where in places like Saudi Arabia, whom there was more trust, they could get a waiver from their government before being allowed in.

Bullshi*. If there's laws already on the books and Obama already legislated this then why did Trump need to issue an executive order?

USA Today | Trump's refugee order not same as Obama's in 2011

Quote:
Jan. 30, 2017

In defending his executive order banning immigration and travel from certain countries, which has touched off widespread anger and confusion, President Trump compared the order to action taken by the Obama administration in 2011. “My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months,” Trump claimed.

Obama administration officials and fact checkers say the claim is wrong....

I do think that the best (maybe only) thing about Mr, Trumps presidency is watching the liberals collective heads explode no matter what he does.
The liberal and media manurestorm that erupts everytime he does something is going to be quite entertaining for the next 4 years.
