ANOTHER REASON TO DELETE: State Dept. to demand tourists’ social media history

The State Department will publish new rules this week that would require most visitors and immigrants to the U.S. to turn over their recent social media histories, carrying out one of President Trump’s key security enhancements from his extreme vetting executive order.

Travelers would also be asked to list previous phone numbers, email addresses and international travel during the previous five years, and to detail any immigration problems they’ve had, whether with the U.S. or elsewhere. They’ll also be asked about potential family connections to terrorism.

And in a striking human rights move, would-be immigrants from countries where female genital mutilation is prevalent would be directed to a website ensuring they’re aware the practice — common in some African countries — is illegal in the U.S.

The proposals are laid out in two new documents slated to be published Friday, kicking off a comment period before the government finalizes the policies.

“This upgrade to visa vetting is long overdue, and it’s appropriate to apply it to everyone seeking entry, because terrorism is a worldwide problem. The aim is to try to weed out people with radical or dangerous views,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies.

  1. This kind of violation of privacy and human rights originated in ISRAEL and how they run their airports. Yet Israel ICTS’ run airports controlled air borders on 911 and when the shoe bomber entered without a passport etc. This is another huge scam in a fascism that just gets worse as we CONTINUE TO ALLOW IT by NOT PROTESTING or REFUSING. SHAME ON WE, the people. Next it will be DNA required on entry- not just to air travelers- but to shop, tour, eat out- everything. The blame is on the nonresisting, compliant zombie “masses R asses” of the world who tolerate this slave branding without a whimper

  2. Hey Goyim I noticed you posted a bunch of stuff about Boycotting Israel. Gee that sure aounds Anti-semetic terrorist to my boss Ima Shekelthief…Maybe these posts saying Palestine is it’s own country mean you work for ISIS? Unless you’re willing to sacrifice some of you’re children for Israel, no admittance to the U.S.!
