While Democrats like Joe Biden cozy up to the Chinese Communist Party, President Trump is treating it like the hostile party that it is. The CCP is responsible for allowing COVID-19 to spread worldwide, killing more than a million people and damaging economies in every nation.
The CCP is clearly a danger to the US, and President Trump is implementing a new USCIS policy that will effectively ban Chinese Communist Party members from immigrating to the United States.
In addition to causing a pandemic and then blaming the US for it, there are other good reasons to keep CCP members out of the country. The CCP steals information, spies on the US, and is interfering in US elections. Recently, the Chinese consulates in New York City, San Francisco, and Houston, Texas were identified as espionage hubs. Democrat Dianne Feinstein, employed a Chinese spy as her chauffeur for 20 years, giving him access to one of the most powerful Democrats sitting on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The USCIS policy, obviously needed, does not target the CCP by name, but the CCP fits into both the Communist Party and totalitarian party categories.
“In general, unless otherwise exempt, any intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party … domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States.”
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services explained the justification for the ban this way:
Membership in or affiliation with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party is inconsistent and incompatible with the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, which includes pledging to ‘support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States.’
The policy affects not only current members of totalitarian parties, but past membership, also.
In general, any immigrant who is or has been a member of or affiliated with the Communist or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible.
This isn’t the first attempt by the United States to deny citizenship to communists. In fact, the new policy is just an addition to laws enacted in the past to protect the US from threats to our national security.
Chapter 3 of volume 8 of the policy manual explains:
The inadmissibility ground for immigrant membership in or affiliation with the Communist or any other totalitarian party is part of a broader set of laws passed by Congress to address threats to the safety and security of the United States. Its original purpose was to protect the United States against un-American and subversive activities that were considered threats to national security.
