Jimmie Carter did it. He withdrew their visas and sent 15,000 Iranians out of America. That’s who we are. That’s what we’re about.
DETAILS: During the Iranian hostage crisis Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they opposed the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.
Here’s what Democrat and Left wing Liberal Jimmy Carter said back in 1980.
“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.
Around 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the US.
So barring people from a terrorist country is not against “our values” after all. It is “who we are”. Looks like Trump, once again, is right.
