Green card holders will need additional screening: White House

U.S. green card holders will require additional screening before they can return to the United States, the White House said on Saturday.

Earlier, a Department of Homeland Security official said people holding green cards, making them legal permanent U.S. residents, were included in President Donald Trump’s executive action temporarily barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

“It will bar green card holders,” Gillian Christensen, acting Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman, said in an email.

A senior White House official later sought to clarify the situation, saying green card holders who had left the United States and wanted to return would have to visit a U.S. embassy or consulate to undergo additional screening.

“You will be allowed to re-enter the United States pending a routine rescreening,” the official said.

Here’s something, if you haven’t seen it yet:

Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Order Was Nominated By OBAMA On Recommendation Of CHUCK SCHUMER
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/01 … k-schumer/

Image On Saturday night, The Gateway Pundit reported that a liberal New York Judge, Judge Ann Donnelly, issued an emergency stay Saturday night that temporarily blocks the United States government form sending people out of the country after they have landed.

From Fox News:

      “The order barred U.S. border agents from removing anyone who arrived in the U.S. with a valid visa from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It also covered anyone with an approved refugee application. The Department of Homeland Security said that more than 170 people were denied entry to the U.S. as of Saturday night, according to Reuters.”

Judge Ann Donnelly was nominated by former President Barack Obama on the recommendation from Chuck Schumer.

From The Brooklyn Eagle:

      ” Donnelly was nominated to be a federal judge by President Barack Obama on the recommendation of Sen. Charles Schumer. On Friday, she had the oath of office administered to her by Chief Judge Carol Bagley Amon, and Judge Pamela K. Chen bestowed the ceremonial gavel to her as the newest judge in the court.

      “We are indebted to Sen. Schumer for recommending Ann Donnelly and all of the other outstanding recent appointments,” Bagley Amon said. “She takes the seat vacated by Sandra Townes when Judge Towns took senior status — seat No. 10, created in 1978.””

Homeland Security: We Will Continue To Enforce Trump’s Travel Ban

January 29, 2017 By
http://thefederalistpapers.org/us/homel … travel-ban

Despite a court order, the Department of Homeland Security said they plan to follow President Trump’s executive order to the letter.

In a statement released early Sunday morning, the agency said they plan on continuing to “enforce all of the president’s executive orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people.”

The court order, they say, will not affect the overall implementation of the executive order and the court order, issued late Saturday night by a federal judge, only affected a small number of travelers who were inconvenienced by security procedures upon their return, Fox News reports.

“The president’s executive orders remain in place—prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the U.S. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety,” the statement said.

The judge’s temporary stay bans the U.S. from deporting people from nations subject to Trump’s travel ban, saying travelers who were detained had a strong argument their rights had been violated.

      “Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to the White House, said, “Nothing in the Brooklyn judge’s order in anyway impedes or prevents the implementation of the president’s executive order which remains in full, complete and total effect.”

Trump’s travel ban sparked protests around the country at several international airports. Demonstrators ranged from a few dozen people to thousands.

Homeland Security said the order affects a small amount of people traveling internationally.

The DHS said the order was the “first step towards reestablishing control over America’s borders and national security.”

      “The DHS said in the statement that they “will faithfully execute the immigration laws, and we will treat all of those we encounter humanely and with professionalism.” They also added that they plan to ensure the safety of the American people by making sure those entering the U.S. pose no threat.”

President Trump has said his sweeping executive order as a necessary step to stop “radical Islamic terrorists” from coming to the U.S. It included a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen and a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program.

Just read the judge’s TEMPORARY order. Allows those being detained at airports and those in transit back to the US to enter. Her ruling DOES NOT permanently lift the ban.

My 2 cents:this was a threat based ban.

More Hogwash and BS Headlines! Did anyone read what the judge did? Limited to those already in our airports from being returned to their countries at this time! Swamp

Not sure if it’s a threat-based ban, but certainly noticed that it was a ban on those ALREADY in the AIRPORTS. So I’m assuming they get in … others will not.

And, as we all saw, tonight … tensions are rising yet again as MORE protests are in the streets. Can’t help but wonder how thin the tension wire is going to get before it breaks. :glare: -k

complicated, but needed….

I have to agree … and I’m an immigrant. We came to the USA in 1960. 7 days aboard the QE2, across the Atlantic. My parents had to swear allegiance to the American flag BEFORE they even left English soil. THey had to have 2 sponsors EACH, to get here. We had to have a place to go, when we got here.

We were here for 7 years,as required for citizenship. Scraping to get by, because they started over from scratch. They sold their home and most of their belongings & household goods to get here. We had to live with my mom’s brother/wife/2 small kids in a small Chicago apartment (so there were 8 of us in that apartment) for several months, till we could rent our own apartment. Every day, my aunt gave my dad bus fare to get to the city to look for a job and bus fare to get back home again. He took a sandwich in a brown bag for lunch and he walked the streets of Chicago, looking for a job. He got one in retail to get our new life started … WITHOUT federal handouts. Just the generosity of my aunt & uncle.

I can remember sitting in an itty-bitty 2nd floor apartment, on a rolled up carpet, waiting for furniture to be delivered to our new home. Tiny in comparison to what we left behind. The furniture we got that day lasted us for DECADES, because we still couldn’t afford to get new years later. It cost too much to keep this new life in our new country. We used slip covers till the furniture nearly fell apart. I see photos of that new furniture and realize it was bare-minimum, low-cost furniture. A couple of tables from family for the living room. Baths in a kitchen sink, because our bathroom only had a sink & a toilet.

So, yea, it’s complicated. Some folks NEED to come here to flee persecution. To get a better life than the one they have in their home-country. But American grace has been taken advantage of by the ‘huddled masses’ , and so many dangerous non-vetted enemies have come to this country. I’m sorry for the ones who want to get here legally. I’m NOT a Trump fan. I’m cautiously watching what he’s doing. But, immigration is out of control and when things get that bad, a reset is needed to get back on track. Doesn’t have to be permanent. No one said what Trump is doing is permanent. I haven’t heard/read that. Has anyone else? If something isn’t done, we’ll become a Germany or an England with all their problems from the Muslem Extremists that are now there. Whole towns being taken over. Not just inhabited … TAKEN OVER. When my family came here … we came to INTEGRATE with fellow citizens. NOT take over, destroy, mame & kill. {{{Rant over}}} -k

Swamp, in a pandemic, social distancing & sheltering wouldn’t be just the best option for everyone. Until a viable vaccine is made for the strain moving through, it would be the only option.

For those not familiar w/ pandemics, don’t get fooled into thinking once it moves through your area, it’s all clear and gone away. Pandemics come in ‘waves’.

          Wave 1: the first time it comes through and creates illness & death.
          Then everyone thinks it’s gone through and all is oke. They begin to go out and socialize. Interaction with each other again.

              THEN:

          Wave 2: comes through because there is still no immunity to the virus, until it either burns out by killing all who have no immunity & leaving behind only those who are immune, or population is vaccinated against the virus.

Sometimes the second wave is more severe than the first. Each wave can last several months at a time. Sometimes there are more than 2 waves.

Pandemics & EMPS. Both have the same devastation to population. Massive deaths. :( -k

People, like all of us who frequent prep forums, will hopefully get a heads us sooner than most. Also, helpful to follow sites like FluTrackers who are constantly monitoring potential health/pandemic situations. Sites (like FluTrackers) have ‘newshounds’ that are continually digging & scanning the global net news sources and reporting updates. The situation in Mexico, several years ago, that ended up being the start of the 2009 swine flu pandemic is a good example of an early heads up that a lot of us got. Someone posted a random ‘hey I think something strange is happening here, what do you think‘ type of post and there it was. It pays to stay current and not have your head in the sand. Because of that single post a lot of “panflu” preppers were already aware and ramping up their home medical preps well before main-stream media reported it. -k

:| . . . :'( Honestly, I haven’t been following flu, like I used to :blush: . I think I’m shell-shocked from the H5N1 threat that never panned out and the the 2009 Swine flu pandemic that died out after the mass vaccinations at the school start up in the fall. There have been so many other pressing problems (national politics, economy, international turmoils) that seemed more of a threat than pandemic.

After reading this post, I ran over to FluTrackers to see what was up & current. There’s a thread over there that is keeping current on the H7N9 strain, if anyone is interested (that one seems to be the most concerning): https://flutrackers.com/forum/forum/nat … nformation -k

Added to note: Since kicking my prepping up to ‘high-gear’, back in 2006-09, I have SO MUCH *old* food in storage. I’m in the process of looking at some of those things and am in the ‘toss’ or ‘don’t toss’ mode. 2006, 07, 08 & 09 canned soups just sound ‘blah’ and I’m really not sure it’s worth saving them anymore nutritionally. (But that’s a whole ‘nother thread!!) -k

Well they can get the hell out of my state.

Maybe I was misunderstood, when I said our politicians, I did not mean PA politicians, I met our (as in we the people) of all 50 states.
I believe the PA politicians are going to D.C., it’s the far left liberal states on the west coast and NY state is where most aren’t going to attend the party in D.C..

4 from PA are NOT going:
Rep. Brendan Boyle (PA)
Rep. Robert Brady (PA)
Rep. Mike Doyle (PA)
Rep. Dwight Evans (PA)
