Carter banned Iranians, kicked out 15,000 during Iranian hostage crisis

Carter kicked out 15,000 Iranians during the hostage siege. Banned Iranians from coming on over, and was otherwise tough on them. This is worth the full read. Have we come so far down the rabbit hole that we will no longer protect ourselves and our families and neighbors? Apparently a peanut farmer had more sense than most of America at this point. Here we go:

Trump is a monster, a madman and a vile racist. He’s just like Hitler. Or Jimmy Carter.

During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.

Here’s Jimmy “Hitler” Carter saying it back in 1980.

Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.

Apparently barring people from a terrorist country is not against “our values” after all. It may even be “who we are”. Either that or Carter was a racist monster just like Trump.

Meanwhile here’s how the Iranian students in the US were treated.

Carter orders 50,000 Iranian students in US to report to immigration office with view to deporting those in violation of their visas. On 27 December 1979, US appeals court allows deportation of Iranian students found in violation.

In November 1979, the Attorney General had given all Iranian students one month to report to the local immigration office. Around 7,000 were found in violation of their visas. Around 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the US.

Interestingly enough, Carter did this by invoking the Nationality Act of 1952. A law originally opposed by Democrats for its attempt to restrict Communist immigration to the United States.

“If this oasis of the world should be overrun, perverted, contaminated, or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished,” Senator McCarran said of the law. He was a Democrat.

    I remember the weird feeling on campus passing a bunch of Iranian students. They would look at us with disdain and I’m sure much worse thoughts. That was in the fall of 1979. They were mostly gone by the next semester. And we all understood why. There were NO protest or upheavals!

      I recall the same thing. Here and then gone and we were the happier for it.. The polldaddy link is bad.

    The trouble with terrorism is that it’s being produced by too many different countries. There’s no easy fix for that.

    Funny how the left forgets about this, and what FDR did during WWII as well, isn’t it? And the sad part is that while most of the media which is attacking Trump know this happened they also no if they ignore it that most of the voters do not even know it happened because they do not know our history.

      Apparently even if they did they would only call us bigots and forget the danger.

    Section 212, Subdivision 2, of the US Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.
    Hostile actions against the United States, qualifies Muslims as Unlawful in America.

    In those good old Pre-PC days we the Americans were allowed to show and direct our disdain towards the Iranian students at USC and UCLA and other campuses who whopped it up and demonstrated their anti-american sentiments when our hostages were taken by the practitioners of the religion of peace in Tehran. Tehran, you know, that’s the city of ground zero for the peanut farmer’s betrayal of the Shah and the West. At least he had the balls to do one thing right. Hopefully the corrupt media will run this story but don’t count on it after all potential terrorists are the figment of the right’s imagination.


    • bunkerville Says:

      I doubt this little tidbit of History will make it to the media outlets.All of this in one generation. Thats when Americans still cared about their country.
