State Dept. Cracks Down On Illegal Immigration



Nina Shea, director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, wrote this at National Review. The following is an excerpt.

Why is the United States barring a persecuted Iraqi Catholic nun — an internationally respected and leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS — from coming to Washington to testify about this catastrophe?

Earlier this week, we learned that every member of an Iraqi delegation of minority groups, including representatives of the Yazidi and Turkmen Shia religious communities, has been granted visas to come for official meetings in Washington — save one. The single delegate whose visitor visa was denied happens to be the group’s only Christian from Iraq.

The State Department officials made the determination that the Catholic nun could be falsely asserting that she intends to visit Washington when secretly she could be intending to stay. That would constitute illegal immigration, and that, of course, is strictly forbidden. Once here, she could also be at risk for claiming political asylum, and the U.S. seems determined to deny ISIS’s Christian victims that status.

Who knew that the State Dept. was so gung ho against any illegal immigration? We’re not buying what the State Dept. is selling. This policy of turning a blind eye to the plight of persecuted Christians brings shame upon the United States.

Wonder if the Congress of the United States could issue another invitation like they did to Benjamin Netanyahu? Oh, wait…..they’re busy trying to help Obama give Iran the bomb. Probably no time to hear from a Christian.

Where’s the Vatican in this?

There’s a very simple explanation. Obama and his minions hate Christians. Especially Catholic ones since they oppose abortion and birth control for the most part.
