Former State Department official says Biden administration is watering down Immigration Restrictions against Terrorist organizations

  • The Biden Admin Just Made It Easier for Terrorists To Enter the United States
  • The Biden administration altered federal law to make it easier for individuals who have worked with designated terrorist groups to legally enter the United States.
  • Examples of individuals who would fall into the new category, according to the announcement, include individuals who provided “humanitarian assistance” or “routine commercial transactions” to terror groups.
  • Lawmakers and former U.S. officials say the new regulations are so broadly written that they would apply to organizations like al Qaeda and the IRGC. The policy change is also raising red flags as U.S. officials, including former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, face credible death threats from Iran.
  • Gabriel Noronha, a State Department special adviser for Iran during the Trump administration, said “this looks like a massive watering down of our immigration restrictions against members of terrorist organizations.”
  • When the Free Beacon requested additional information and an explanation as to why the IRGC or similar groups would not be covered by the changes, the State Department declined to answer, saying, “We have no further information or comments to share.” This lack of clarity is fueling concerns about the policy change.

Israel and Iran clash devolving into unconstrained chain reaction

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

  • In late May, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)… reported that Iran possesses enough fissile material to construct a nuclear bomb. Jerusalem’s long-feared specter of Tehran becoming an existential threat to Israel is now very real and imminent.
  • Guardrails aimed at avoiding this crisis — tenuous as they were — are fast dissipating. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is all but dead.
  • Iran… is increasingly combative and non-cooperative. On June 6, Rafael Grossi, director-general of the IAEA, reported to the agency’s board of governors that Tehran had failed to provide “explanations that are technically credible” with respect to finding nuclear materials at “three undeclared locations in Iran.”
  • In response, the IAEA board censured Tehran, resulting in Iran cutting off IAEA camera feeds that monitored Iran’s nuclear activities.
  • Prepared or not, Israel and Washington both appear to be out of time — Iran’s threat is substantial, and it is only intensifying
  • Measured in Doomsday Clock terms, it is five minutes to midnight in Jerusalem and Tehran — and in Megiddo, the historical biblical site of Armageddon in Israel.
