President Trump has ordered a crackdown on visa overstays. He’s also looking to limit visas from countries that refuse to take back their dirtbag criminals.
New guidance from the State Department based on a Trump executive order calls for a crackdown on immigrants who don’t return home as promised and it urges U.S. diplomats in foreign posts to look skeptically at new visa applicants.
Absolutely no one has been watching them and they account for more than 40% of the people here illegally. The Washington Examiner reports:
Jessica M. Vaughan, the director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, told Secrets that the order will have a huge impact because foreign students notoriously stay too long, often then taking U.S. jobs.
What’s more, student visas are the favorite of terrorists, she said. “Foreign students have one of the highest rates of overstaying visas of any category – much higher even than tourist visas. It’s one of the favorite visas for terrorists to try to obtain, because it offers a longer duration of stay. Some of the 9/11 terrorists were given student visas,” she said.
Vaughan added, “Too many people enroll in U.S. colleges just to get a foothold in the United States rather than to pursue an education, and for too long the State Department has looked the other way, preferring instead to promote U.S. colleges. The higher education industry also lobbies Congress and the State Department relentlessly for help in attracting foreign students and cries foul when it thinks the law is being enforced too much, because many of these schools view foreign students as a cash cow, and don’t care if they stay over to compete for jobs with U.S. students.”
Some nations won’t take their people back
Another outrageous practice allowed by prior administrations is the fact that other countries won’t take their people back, especially if they are criminals. The NY Times reported that the US is looking to limit visas from 4 nations that won’t take their own people once we deport them.
The nations are Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. The secretary of state can do this legally.
Other nations that won’t take back their people are: China, Burma, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, Iran, Morocco, Hong Kong, and South Sudan.
It’s not clear why the other offending nations aren’t yet included.
The leftists have defined us as a nation without borders that is no longer sovereign. Trump is trying to roll it back.
