The Bush Admin has decided to “revise” a long-standing (post-9/11) policy barring asylum in the U.S. for foreigners if they helped armed groups (including terrorists) in their native countries (or other countries besides the U.S.).
That was a good rule that helped us deny asylum to various terrorists and despots.
Under the “new & improved” Bush rules, applicants for asylum can still get it if they can show they were “forced” to support the armed groups (including terrorists). All they have to do is say they were “performing the services under duress.”
Hello . . .? Everyone is going to claim they were “forced” or “under duress.” This is ABSURD! I’m sure Mohammed Atta was under duress from Allah and Bin Laden, too. That’s the excuse all the accused Nazis give.
Who cares? They helped murder people. Keep them from coming to our country to destroy us from within.
Supposedly the rule won’t apply to those who helped groups like Al-Qaeda, but just watch: they’ll get in under this, too.
President Bush’s stupid moves like this will be the death of us. More Americans will die on our soil because of stupid rules like this.
