...into the United States. Here's a little jewel of a law passed in 1990 at the urging of Sen. Ted Kennedy. Mere advocacy of terrorism is [u]not[/u] grounds for denial of a travel visa or immigration visa to the United States. Read the article to see the problems Kennedy set up with his legislation at: [url]http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=2480[/url] Excerpts from the article: "A 1990 U.S. immigration law, sponsored by Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., instructs State Department employees that "mere" membership in a terrorist organization or advocacy of acts of terrorism should not exclude foreigners from receiving U.S. immigration visas. "Under the law as it is written, someone who belongs to a Middle Eastern terrorist group and has publicly stated a desire that the World Trade Center towers be blown up cannot, on those grounds alone, be denied permission to legally enter the United States as a prospective citizen. * * * "Most of the visa section of the foreign affairs manual is based on the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1990, which lowered the national security standards for granting immigration visas. "Prior to that, under the 1952 Immigration Act, aliens could be excluded if there was reason to believe they would engage in activities against the public interest or the security of the United States. Aliens also could be excluded for advocating anarchism, the assault or murder of U.S. government officials, the unlawful damage of property, or for publishing or possessing material advocating such activities. * * * "[b]In 1990, a blind Egyptian sheik named Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was later convicted as a conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, was admitted to the United States with a visa issued by the embassy in Sudan, even though his name appeared on the State Department's list of undesirables[/b]. This watch list consists of 5.5 million people who may be inadmissible to the United States for various reasons, including criminal histories and terrorist links, as well as lack of funds or infectious diseases. "Kennedy and Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., pushed the new legislation through the Senate during the 1990 Persian Gulf crisis. [b]The legislation was also promoted by some Irish-American groups.[/b]" Oh, so that's it! The Kennedy legislation was designed simply to prevent Socialist bastard members of the friggin' Irish Republican Army from coming into the country! Now I understand that asshole's motives!
