I gave you a grade of C+.   Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on  several occasions. 

Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the "suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions  by the president, whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. 

"The president may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens, immigrants or non- immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate." 

Who was president when this was passed? 

Harry Truman. Who do you suppose last used this process?

Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States.
