Schumer wants to limit visas

From NY1:

Senator Charles Schumer wants to make it harder for international travelers from 14 countries to get what he calls "revolving door" visas.

He proposes stricter limits on tourist and business visas for people from countries the United States considers dangerous, including Yemen, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran.

Currently, people can come and go as they please for the length of the visa.

The change would require visitors to get a visa every time they wanted to enter the United States, something the senator says would have prevented alleged terrorist Umar Farouk Abdumutallab from boarding a U.S. bound plane with explosives on Christmas Day.

"If the proposal we're making here today were adopted, the odds are very high Abdulmutallab wouldn't be allowed to get on that plane in Nigeria and the terrorist scare would never have happened," said Schumer.

The senator also said seven of the September 11th hijackers entered the United States using open-ended visas.

he has missed the boat. we should demand that he have Eric Holder fired. an incompetent U.S. Attorney General who is going to enable death to some of our citizens.
Schumer's clerks do not record constituent's phone messages to be relayed to him. she only lets you vent and hangs up when you catch her.

Israel probably considers you dangerous as well

Wait a minute... what's not being said here? The other half of the story is this: Schumer wants to look responsible with this proposal, so he can get amnesty for everyone who's already here. The fix is in.

A basic rule of politics: never ever trust Schumer.

Another rule: If Schumer makes sense, there's always something hidden.

I agree wholeheartedly, Liman. Something's fishy here. You and I know that there's more to this than meets the eye if the always-phony Mr. Face-time is pushing something that (at first glance) seems so sensible.

Check revolving door visas on other countries who dont have homegrown terrorists but allow them to move freely through there country on to the USA. Every one hates us for our success but when they have a problem like natural disaster or neighbor country looking to invade, they come running to us for help. .

it appears from the sketchy information coming from
Louisiana, that constituents of the democratic senator,Mary Leambroux were having trouble communicating by telephone with her office.

the obama "Louisiana Purchase " for the obamacare vote must have blown the circuits in the building,by the constituent's numerous calls.

is censoring the public from petitioning their federal officials a crime?

Not sure, but what those guys were doing in her office sure was a Federal crime. That story you're pushing won't be very helpful with the jury.

RE: G the A.,is it not a greater federal crime to bribe a U.S. senator with $300,000,000 of taxpayer money ,so she will vote for obamacare ?
