We ARE the Deplorables
Much of this post is a reprint from Grassroot Conservative at Blogspot. Invoking the Fair Use Act, we are using it solely for the education of the ignorant, which comprises most of the Liberals in the United States and around the globe; not to mention a great many conservatives.
The McCarran-Walter Act of 1952 is indeed law.
I bet if you asked your Senator or Congressman, there would be many that would say they have never heard of this law. And who was the last President who enforced this law? A Democratic President.
It's been law for over 60 years...
Some detractors claim the law was never ratified by Congress, making it null and void, so which is it? Actually it WAS passed by Congress, but President Harry Truman, a Democrat, vetoed the Act because he regarded the bill as "un-American" and discriminatory.
Too bad so sad, because Truman's veto was overridden by a vote of 278 to 113 in the House and 57 to 26 in the Senate.
Trump was recently 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 president called such a prohibition on immigration 'unconstitutional’.
Well, as Gomer Pyle would say, “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 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 period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
The act was utilized by Jimmy Carter, no less, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States, but he actually did more. He made all Iranian students already here check in, and then he deported a bunch. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the United States in 1979.
It is of note that the act requires that an applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and "attached to the principles of the Constitution.”
Since it appears that the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically all Muslims should be refused immigration.
Speaking in the Senate on March 2, 1953, McCarran said:
"I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. ... However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies. Today, as never before, untold millions are storming our gates for admission and those gates are cracking under the strain. The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United States. ... I do not intend to become prophetic, but if the enemies of this legislation succeed in riddling it to pieces, or in amending it beyond recognition, they will have contributed more to promote this nation's downfall than any other group since we achieved our independence as a nation."
Note: Wikipedia is not generally accepted in academia as a valid source of information. However in this case it is spot-on; as verified through other sources as to its veracity.
Ultra radical left wing snopes has supposedly debunked this account of the facts. However like usual, they have omitted a great deal of information to support their false narrative. Considering they are supported by George Soros, you be the judge on whether or not you want to believe their tripe.
