President Trump to Ban Communists from Entering US

President Trump to Ban Communists from Entering US

The Trump Administration is considering a policy that would prevent members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from entering the United States.

The policy, not unlike the 2017 travel ban affecting predominantly Muslim nations, would apply to members of the CCP as well as their families and could authorize the federal government to invalidate visas belonging to individuals already living in the United States. 

“Unless otherwise exempt, any intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the CCP or any other totalitarian party…domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States,” said a spokesperson for the USCIS.

The Trump Administration has also announced visa restrictions affecting:

  • Officials linked to Muslim prosecution
  • Students linked to Chinese military institutions
  • Officials linked to repression of rights in Hong Kong
  • Employees of Chinese tech companies

As of September 8th, the Administration had blocked more than 1,000 visas of Chinese nationals.

The ban on CCP members would be hard to enforce considering the fact that the Party has over 92 million members (270 million if you count family members) and the US government has no way to determine who belongs to it and who doesn’t. 

“Going after the entire Party membership is like China sanctioning all Republicans because of frustration with Trump,” argues Jude Blanchette, a China scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “Such a move would inflame public opinion in China, as this would target nearly 10% of the entire Chinese population and would do so based on blanket assertions of guilt.”

The ban Trump seeks will no doubt complicate a relationship that is already strained by tariffs and tech restrictions, but he is doing it for the right reasons.

Over the past decade, we have seen the CCP aggressively expand its influence throughout the world, use technology to spy on and steal from the US, alter its constitution to keep Xi Jinping in power indefinitely, detain and torture millions of Muslims, initiate a global pandemic, break its 1997 promise to preserve civil liberties in Hong Kong, and keep its own citizens in the dark with unprecedented levels of censorship and surveillance.

Author’s Note: What Trump is doing here is banning foreign nationals whose philosophy presents a threat to the United States. Critics will say he is stifling freedom of expression, but this policy does not affect US citizens. The idea here is that America belongs to Americans, and people from other countries do not have a right to be here. We will allow immigrants in at our own convenience, not there’s.

    While I believe that the United States would do well to severely limit the number of visas for “students” and “business persons” from China ; it will still be necessary to admit a few diplomats from China, for their visits and assignments to the U.N., and to their embassies and consulates on American soil. We should NOT be educating them on our advanced science, military, and politics. Too many have already proven to be spies, and thieves of intellectual properties !!!

      We educate them because their governments pay the full tuition and the Universities love the money. They are as complicit in giving away state secrets as are the professors. Why are we training the enemy, letting them have access to all our programs and computers only to take them home, reverse engineer them and use the information against us? I say give them all a dead line to be out of the country and then enforce it.

    Fantastic ! I really like the language used in the policy, especially the part “or any other totalitarian party…domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States”. With a policy like this in place, seems we could rid ourselves of many problems. Goodbye Democrats & good riddance!
