Homeland Security : Ban Includes Green Card Holders

With the liberal media in total meltdown and the world in uproar (sans Israel) on Saturday after President Donald Trump’s executive actions with regard to banning immigration from 7 predominantly Muslim countries (as per his campaign promises), the cherry on top was finally put by Gillian Christensen, a Department of Homeland Security’s official.

Gillian Christensen just confirmed later on Saturday that the executive order will include barring green card holders from entering the United States and also people who hold dual nationality.

For those of you outside the United States, holding a Green Card is an individual’s proof that he/she has permanent legal residence in the country and he/she can also work legally and benefit from all the advantages of an American citizen except from voting.

The State Department issued a statement which is currently due to release, yet it was reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. The statement describes the ninety days visa moratorium which extends far beyond just citizens of Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Libya, Sudan and Yemen.

Basically, if you’re originally from Iran (for the sake of argument) and you’re travelling to US on a passport issued by another country (let’s say UK), you will not be allowed to enter United States, even if British citizens do not require a visa from entering the US.

Also, if you have Iranian/French dual citizenship (or any other from the 7 countries aforementioned) you will not be allowed to enter the US for the next ninety days, even if you already have a valid immigrant/non immigrant visa.

However, the ban does not apply to US citizens who are also citizens of  Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Libya, Sudan and Yemen.

Asked by the press to comment about the numerous lawsuits filled by various open-borders groups (including ACLU) against Trump’s executive order from Friday, officials declined to make any comments, yet they explained very clearly that foreigners have absolutely no right to enter the US, while the Muslim-ban was dismissed as ridiculous.

The halt/ban on immigration is only temporary and it’s designed to allow Trump’s administration enough time to implement a comprehensive vetting system before allowing refugees and immigrants to enter the homeland.

The order also gives Christian refugees priority in the refugee resettlement process.

Israel was basically the only country supportive of Donald Trump’s decisions:

President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea ????

It’s worth mentioning that 5 out of the 7 countries on the banned list are currently bombed by the US.
