Scared by Visa Overstays
The Obama administration has “no way of knowing” which illegal aliens have overstayed their visas — and that’s perhaps far more dangerous than those who are crossing the southern border, political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.
“None of the 9/11 terrorists came over the Rio Grande. They all came from visa overstays,” Morris said on the premiere episode of “Dennis Michael Lynch: Unfiltered.”
“There are two ways that illegal immigrants come into the U.S.” Morris said. “They go over the border, which is about two-thirds of them, or they come here legally on a visa and they overstay the 90 days or whatever.
“That’s about a third. All of the political attention is on the first group, none on the second group — and yet that’s where the terrorists are.”
“We have no way of knowing whose overstayed. No way and, therefore, no way of rounding them up. That is the national security issue.
“Immigration over the border may become a national security issue, but what really scares me is those visa overstays.”
As for our organization, The Contemplative Thinker, to find this kind of information so readily is an admonition to our society. In fact we have such strong feelings about this as well as: People from other countries traveling to the USA with no visa at all is unconscionable.
Now with every 1st Amendment right (freedom of speech) available why not starting a Movement as it were so that our Congressional members can hear us and loudly at that! There are two simple idiosyncrasies found so available that I would be a negligent writer without at least mentioning them. We are positive there are far more than two weird things that are happening, perhaps we will address those in a series of writings.
However, of the first part, who and/or what administration was in charge, and what Congress (“Official Congress”) were seated when someone or someone’s took it upon themselves to legislate the current citizens of 38 countries, primarily in Europe, can generally travel to the United States without applying for a visa — though they still must submit biographical information to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization, or ESTA.
But under the eased restrictions, people who traveled to those countries as journalists, for official work with humanitarian agencies or on behalf of international organizations, regional organizations and provincial or local governments may still be eligible to visit the United States without first obtaining a visa.
Homeland Security said that waivers for some ESTA applicants would be granted on a “case-by-case” basis. Those who are denied visa-free travel can still apply for visa through a U.S. embassy in their home country, the agency said.
But that was not good enough for Republicans, including Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who told Politico that he was still trying to “digest” the White House’s move.
Of the second part many if not most of us have forgotten the role of government as promoted by the Framer’s of our Constitution — we should be involved with every decision that affects our natural rights.
