Immigration and the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952
Source: Email submission
This was sent to me in an email and I thought it is a very pertinent law that is uppermost in our minds concerning Syrian immigrants being allowed into our country. Maybe all the states and their governors could stop any Syrians or Muslims to come into their state until the mid east fiasco is finally resolved, which may be years. Send this to your governor and as many congressmen as you can contact by email or letter.
Maybe we can bring some sense back to our situation. And by the way send it to Donald Trump at email@example.com. Maybe if enough of us send this to Donald he will use it in his campaign.Bill
When I was Dean of Continuing Education at Ricker College in Northern Maine from 1976 to 1979 The college had recruited a bunch of Iranian students to fill the new dorms they had built during the Vietnam War for students trying to avoid the draft. After that conflict ended, they needed to fill those dorms, thus the Iranians. President Carter had many of them kicked out of the country in 1979. The college lost quite a few of those students. I am not sure I agree with all of this e-mail post, but amazing how the Obama regime can ignore history when it is convenient for them!
Did you read this important bit of information that the MEDIAwould never share with the American Voter..

Well, well, I bet if you asked your Senator or Congressman, they would say they have never heard of this law. And who was the last President who enforced this law? A President and a Democrat.
WOW! IT PAYS TO KNOW YOUR HISTORY!
It’s been law for over 60 years… Interesting Bit of Legislative History – McCarran-Walter Act of 1952
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 (Muslim) president called such a prohibition on immigration ‘unconstitutional’.
Well, as Gomer Pyle would say, â€œSurprise, Surprise!â€
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 the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, all Muslims should be refused immigration.
