President Trump may have found a way to completely bypass the 9th circuit.
ection 243(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act allows the president to refuse visas to any country he deems “uncooporative”.
Washington Times reports that even if President Trump can’t get the courts to approve his executive order, he still can use another method to remove visas from the seven countries he is trying to target.
There is a federal law that states that the government can stop issuing visas to countries that are considered “uncooperative.”
An “uncooperative” country is considered a country which refuses to take back its citizens when America tries to deport them.
According to new data obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Institute, five of the seven countries President Trump is targeting are on the list.
All President Trump needs to do here is have the secretary of DHS issue an official notification about those countries, and the State Department would immediately halt visas, IRLA says.
“Each of these countries either cannot or are unwilling to take back their citizens, all of whom have either violated our immigration laws or committed crimes against our own. For that reason alone, the Trump administration can and should put a complete halt to their visa privileges. In fact, the law requires it,” said Ian Smith, investigative associate at the IRLI.
I can’t stop cheering folks. This is the best news I’ve read and written all day.
Finally President Trump can get back on track on making this great country safe again.
Thank you for reading.
