Trump, ever since he took office, has been working really hard to keep the American people as safe as possible through the reduction of dangerous people entering the country.
Of course the left-leaning courts have fought him at every corner and tried to stop every effort he makes. The good news is that Trump has some tricks up his sleeve to help out the American people while the battles rage on in the courts.
President Trump has asked the State Department to restrict the visas given to applicants from Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. Why is he doing this, you may ask? The answer is simple, these countries DO NOT take back their OWN nationals when the United States is deporting them.
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security said in a statement:
“International law obligates each country to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the United States. Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone have failed in that responsibility.
The United States itself routinely cooperates with foreign governments in documenting and accepting its citizens when asked, as do the majority of countries in the world. However, these countries have failed to do so, and that one-way street ends with these sanctions.”
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan backed her up, saying:
“American citizens have been harmed because foreign governments refuse to take back their citizens.
These sanctions will ensure that the problem these countries pose will get no worse as ICE continues its work to remove dangerous criminals from the United States.”
Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has asked the US consular offices in all of these countries to restrict a range of visas with different restrictions for each of the previously mentioned countries. Most restrictions will apply to the temporary B visas for tourists.
Tillerson has also warned that if these countries continue to break international LAW then the restrictions will become much more HARSH!
That is how you get things done. Why did NONE of the previous presidents do this? Anyway, I am delighted that we have someone in office who is actually getting things done and sticking up for the people!
