Trump Admin Considers Adding More Nations To So-Called Travel Ban

Good grief, it’s simply horrible that they want to attempt to keep people who hate the United States and would like to do the nation harm out, right? But, wait, do I see some quid pro quo here?

Trump officials weigh adding more countries to travel ban list: report

The Trump administration is considering adding more countries to its travel ban list, an immigration measure taken by the Trump Administration that has sparked outrage from many Americans.

The contemplation stems from inter-agency discussions revolving around nations that do not comply with digital document and information sharing, a topic that is a focal point for President Trump, CNN reports.

An official told the news network that the goal would be to “bring governments into compliance by using the power of access to the United States.” Reportedly, less than five countries are being considered.

Strange, it’s almost like the U.S. government is attempting to change the behavior of foreign governments using the carrot and stick method. Quid quo pro? You know, pretty much the way politics, especially international politics, works? Nations do not have friends, they have interests, as the saying goes.

Trump and his administration have long argued that the travel ban is essential to national security, but critics of the bill say that it targets countries that have large populations of Muslim citizens.

Currently, the list includes Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, along with Venezuela and North Korea.

North Korea and Venezuela have large Muslim populations? The other 5 are seriously problematic nations. People have a problem with blocking citizens of those nations? Really? Oh, right, Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The Department of Homeland Security consistently assesses the countries on the list and their compliance with the rules of the order. For instance, Chad was taken off the list after the White House reported that the African country had improved its security measures, according to CNN.

Sounds like quid pro quo.

Congressional Democrats have continuously pushed back against the policy.

“The Muslim ban has not made us safer,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said at a House hearing on the ban in September.

Jerry wants to let more people from nations with large Islamic terrorist problems into the U.S.? Good to know. According the CNN article

An inter-agency discussion about imposing travel restrictions on countries that are not compliant with electronic documents and information sharing — a key focus of the administration — is underway, according to a senior administration official. Fewer than five countries are under consideration, the official said.

I bet there will be some quid pro quo involved.

    I’ve met Nazis in CT on several occasions and they were nice to me.
    My sister said she met Muslims in CT that were nice to her.

    But if somebody comes to our shores and says they are either Nazi or Islamic then we should not let them in. Neither Nazism nor Islam fits with being American.

    But it is illegal to solicit electoral help from foreign governments, whether you extort them or not.

    This is why the tRump cabal keeps talking about quid pro quo, to distract from the real crime. And this is why tRump defenders such as TEACH conflate the issue. Confuse and distract!

    So it’s not illegal to request legal behaviors from a foreign gov’t in exchange for legal foreign aid, y’know.

      Politico detailed the collusion between Ciaramella’s DNC operative pal and Ukraine in a lengthy report by Kenneth Vogel, now with the New York Times, and David Stern, who resides in Kiev. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office,” they write. “They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.”

      Maybe it’s because the only witness who actually heard the conversation said nothing wrong transpired.

      Gropin’ Joe and Teddy Kennedy thought it was OK.

      So why isn’t Hillary in jail? That’s what she did.

      Trump did not, but liberals have poor reading comprehension, so they somehow interpreted the transcript to mean that.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        She wasn’t indicted or tried. Perhaps AG Barr will pursue charges.

        • formwiz says:

          Considering that just not having been tried yet does not make the evidence against her any less real. Especially regarding Ukraine.

          Kind of like finally catching up with Adolf Eichmann or Klaus Barbie.
