Since we all know very well by now that the United States of America is supposed to take in the people the rest of the world doesn’t want nor care to take care of, third world nations, some of them who are very wealthy, are refusing to take back those who broke our laws and sovereignty by breaking into our country illegally.
The State Department and the DHS have yet to reveal which four countries received these restrictions, but an anonymous source says the 4 offending nations include Sierra Leone, Cambodia, Eritrea and Guinea. The anonymous source stated that the State Department has been traditionally reluctant to impose visa sanctions because affected countries often retaliate through reciprocal restrictions on United States citizens and officials, even going as far as diplomats.
The measures have only been imposed twice before. Against the nations of Guyana and The Gambia. Department of Homeland Security currently officially identifies China, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, Iran, Guinea, Cambodia, Eritrea, Burma, Morocco, Hong Kong and South Sudan as being recalcitrant in accepting deportees from the U.S. It was not immediately clear as to why only Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea and Sierra Leone were selected for the sanctions since they were only identified as “at risk” for recalcitrance.
Countries that refuse to take back illegals cut in half, ‘big’ win for Trump
The Trump administration has bolstered its campaign to deport criminal illegal immigrants by getting countries to stop blocking the transfers and take them back, according to key Homeland Security officials.
Led by its success in getting Iraq to shift gears, the administration is looking to cut the number of “recalcitrant nations” even further as it speeds up the arrest of illegal immigrants and visa overstayers who have criminal records.
“It is big news. It shows that some of these countries see that they can’t get away with stiff arming us anymore, that there will be consequences,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the Obama and Trump administrations, in a combined effort from the departments of state and homeland security, have cut the number of recalcitrant nations in half.
“Working with our partners at the Department of State, ICE has made significant progress over the past year to improve cooperation on removals – including reducing the number of recalcitrant countries from 23 in May 2016 to 12 in May 2017,” an ICE official told Secrets. “The recent agreement with the government of Iraq is one example, and we will continue our efforts to encourage greater cooperation.”
While some consider forcing recalcitrant nations to take U.S. deportations low-hanging fruit, the foreign governments can be stubborn. As a result, the Trump administration has decided to play hardball, as in the case of Iraq, which got off the president’s travel ban list partly by ending its policies of barring the return of criminals.
But recently, U.S. courts have interfered, raising another hurdle to the administration’s plans. Last month, for example, courts blocked the administration from deporting more than 1,000 Iraqis with horrific criminal records, claiming they might face threats back home.
“ICE is currently reviewing the judge’s order to determine the appropriate next steps,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen.
Still, the administration’s efforts have won applause among groups eager to enforce immigration laws.
“The Trump administration has already made significant progress in just 150 days,” said Vaughan, director of policy studies at CIS. But, she said, the administration will have to make good on threats to punish countries that balk at taking back criminals, including murderers and drug dealers.
“I am confident that the number of deadbeat countries can be reduced even further – for starters, China and Hong Kong should be the focus of pressure. On the at-risk list, there is no way places like Bermuda should be stiff-arming us. Others, like Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Pakistan, have a lot to lose if they don’t cooperate more fully. There are plenty of visa programs that could be turned off in a heartbeat if they do not improve very soon,” Vaughan suggested.
Dale Wilcox, executive director of the Immigration Reform Law Institute, heralded the change in how the Trump administration has approached the issue compared to the Obama White House.
“ICE, along with the State Department, has the legislative authority to punish these countries. However, it was almost never been used in past administrations. That’s now changing,” he said.
After so many decades of wimpy leadership, the world seems to have forgotten that the USA isn’t the world’s bead and breakfast. With President Trump, we proudly usher in a new era of enforcement of the law. If you don’t belong here you will be sent back to whatever cesspool you came from, it’s simple. And anyone who feels this is racism, I have news for you, coming into our nation illegally and violating our laws and sovereignty does not make you a specific race. Go try to live in the nation of Mexico illegally, I dare you!
Please share if you are proud of President Trump….
