President Obama changes the law and now admits immigrants with lesions, blistering STD’s and leprosy into America.

UNREAL!

In his first year in office, President Obama lifted an entry ban on foreigners with HIV.

Most U.S. cases of leprosy occur in people who traveled to the United States from areas of the world where the bacterial infection is endemic.

It’s not clear how this new rule benefits Americans.
The Washington Examiner reported:

The administration has decided to let immigrants with three sexually transmitted diseases known for causing sores or lesions on genitalia to enter the United States, an expansion of a previous decision to let in those with HIV.

The Department of Health and Human Services this month opened the borders to those with the STDs, deeming the communicable diseases not a big threat to the United States.

A report from the Centers for Immigration Studies said that HHS does not believe that the costs to taxpayers to handle the immigrants with STDs will be significant.

Now, said the Center, the list of inadmissible communicable diseases only includes syphilis, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and leprosy.

Immigrants or Islamists?

Family Security Matters

A showdown worthy of High Noon may erupt over immigration if Obama, as anticipated, decrees amnesty for millions of illegal aliens via executive order. Republicans would decry the sheer lawlessness of Obama’s brazen unilateralism in a nation of equal and divided powers, not least Congress’s explicit constitutional mandate to write laws and Obama’s utter absence of authority to do so. Conservatives, and many moderates, fret about the fiscal and sociocultural impact of a wide-open southern boundary practically decorated with a 1,989-mile-long “Welcome!” sign. Thus the oft-heard demand for border security as Step One in immigration reform.

Concerns about health, education, and welfare notwithstanding, there are serious national-security reasons for immediately clamping down on the U.S.-Mexican “border.” It has devolved into a people-mover for illegal immigrants from certified terrorist states and other nations filled with zealots eager to kill Americans.

According to recently released data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 5,063 individuals from nations that harbor terrorists were arrested last year trying to cross into America from Mexico. None of these were Mexicans, Guatemalans, or Hondurans; they were citizens from far-away nations consumed by militant Islam.

Obama admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants with ‘limited’ terror contact into US

Family Security Matters

The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars  certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided “limited material  support” to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal Register to narrow a ban in  the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum  seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor,  to terrorists.

“These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that  have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no  tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was  insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of  everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or  under significant pressure,” a DHS official explained to The Daily  Caller.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the exemptions.

DHS contends that the law change is “commonsense” and that immigration procedures will remain the same in other respects.

“In addition to rigorous background vetting, including checks  coordinated across several government agencies, these exemptions will  only be applied on a case-by-case basis after careful review and all  security checks have cleared,” the official added. “This exemption  process is vital to advancing the U.S. government’s twin goal of  protecting the world’s most vulnerable persons while ensuring U.S.  national security and public safety.”

While the administration says the rule change is reasonable, former  State Department official and current director of policy studies for the  Center for Immigration StudiesJessica Vaughan questioned the  administration’s right to unilaterally change the law.

“[T]here is a very legitimate question as to whether the  administration actually has the authority to change the law in this  way,” Vaughan wrote in an email to TheDC. “It seems to me that they are  announcing that they will be disregarding yet another law written by  Congress that they don’t like and are replacing it with their own  guidelines, which in this case appear to be extremely broad and vague,  and which are sure to be exploited by those seeking to game our generous  refugee admissions program.”
