A Funny Thing About Those Travel Restrictions
Posted on: 02/01/2017 11:02 PM

The same insolent, self serving democrats that are so up in arms about President Trump's travel restriction Executive Order ended up voting for travel restrictions for nations that sponsor terrorism in 2002.


" SEC. 306. RESTRICTION ON ISSUANCE OF VISAS TO NONIMMIGRANTS FROM COUNTRIES THAT ARE STATE SPONSORS OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM.

(a) IN GENERAL- No nonimmigrant visa under section 101(a)(15) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C.1101(a)(15)) shall be issued to any alien from a country that is a state sponsor of international terrorism unless the Secretary of State determines, in consultation with the Attorney General and the heads of other appropriate United States agencies, that such alien does not pose a threat to the safety or national security of the United States. In making a determination under this subsection, the Secretary of State shall apply standards developed by the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Attorney General and the heads of other appropriate United States agencies, that are applicable to the nationals of such states."





[size-medium]The roll call House vote is: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2002/roll131.xml

And these senators, including weepy Chuck Schumer, voted for this legislation in 2002:

Cantwell, D-Wash. (F, 4%)
Cardin, D-Md. (F, 2%)
Carper, D-Del. (F, 10%)
Markey, D-Ore. (F, 17%)
Menendez, D-N.J. (F, 6%)
Murray, D-Wash. (F, 2%)
Nelson, D-Fla. (F, 4%)
Reed, D-R.I. (F, 4%)
Sanders, I-Vt. (F, 17%)
Schumer, D-N.Y. (F, 2%)
Stabenow, D-Mich. (F, 8%)
Wyden, D-Ore. (F, 6%)
Durbin, D-Ill. (F, 2%)
Feinstein, D-Calif. (F, 0%)
Leahy, D-Vt. (F, 6%)
Udall, D-N.M. (F, 4%)

So these same hacks who are leading protests against Donald Trump’s refugee pause voted to block visas from Muslim states in 2002.

What shameless hypocrites.[/size]
