Well, this is just basic logic. Even though I assume it is also illegal under some kind of “civil rights” legislation.
Reports of Iranians and Iranian-Americans being detained for questioning upon entering the U.S. kicked off a furor on Sunday from Washington state to Washington, D.C., marking a new domestic blowback to the Trump administration’s targeted killing of a key Iranian leader.
The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a prominent Muslim civil liberties group, said on Sunday that more than 60 people of Iranian descent, including American citizens, were held for hourslong periods of questioning over the weekend at the Peace Arch checkpoint in Blaine, Wash., along the border with Canada. CAIR noted that many Iranian-Americans would continue to approach the port of entry over the weekend as some return to the U.S. after attending an Iranian pop concert Saturday in Vancouver.
The initial reports and the backlash they triggered — with references to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II — highlighted the potential risks inside the U.S. even before the fierce retaliation promised by the Iranian government for the killing of Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite paramilitary forces, by a U.S. military drone on Thursday.
CAIR said in its statement that a source at U.S. Customs and Border Protection had reported that the agency received a national directive from the Department of Homeland Security to “‘report’ and detain anyone with Iranian heritage entering the country who is deemed potentially suspicious or ‘adversarial,’ regardless of citizenship status.”
“We are working to verify reports of a broad nationwide directive to detain Iranian-Americans at ports of entry so that we can provide community members with accurate travel guidance,” Masih Fouladi, executive director of CAIR’s Washington chapter, said in a statement.
If they get caught having issued a directive, there will presumably be some consequences.
I don’t know what kind of retard would think, as an Iranian, that this week was a good week to enter the United States. Probably not a terrorist. Probably instead someone who wanted to create a scene of “oppression.”
And it is totally and completely pointless anyway. There are between 500,000 and one million “Iranian-Americans.”
That’s just those with US citizenship.
Then you have however many Iranians who are here on visas or have overstayed visas. Which would presumably be a number in the hundreds of thousands, given how “generous” America is with its visa programs for third world countries.
Among this entire population, you’re going to have at the very least 100,000 people who are going to be loyal to their country. And then a certain number of those who would be willing to carry out attacks in America, in the event of a war.
There is absolutely zero question that in the case of a war, Iran will be both willing and able to kill Americans in America, using the tried and true tactics of Sunni Islam. The only difference is they are smarter and will perform these acts more efficiently.
