McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952



  Wouldn't it be interesting if, at some point during  his Presidential campaign, Donald Trump asked, "Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, DC, ever heard of theMcCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?"  Not many know of this act, but it has been LAWfor 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, DC, do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in their OWN 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 illustrious 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 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 deems to be appropriate." 

And who do you suppose last enacted this process?
Why, it was Democratic 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 who were 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 administration? 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 conclude that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the US Constitution, technically ALL Muslims should be refused immigration to OUR country UNLESS THEY ADHERE TO THE LAW OF THE LAND.  OUR IGNORANT SELF-SERVING POLITICIANS HAVE DENIED OUR OWN LAW.
