US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslims, which was recently overturned by the US Supreme Court, is yet another stymied effort to push forth his ambitious immigration policy.
COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY THE BAN
US President Donald Trump’s travel ban is an executive order (using Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101) that targets 6 (originally 7) predominantly Muslim countries. The order places a 120-day ban on the US refugee programme, and a 90-day ban on citizens from the six countries in question.
Mon March 6 update: Iraq was removed from the list after criticism that the original order overlooked the country’s role in fighting terrorism.
MUSLIM BAN: KEY FACTS
The list excludes Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan; countries that have actually terrorised the United States or pose a security threat.
Most American terrorists, especially in the last 5 years, were homegrown residents or naturalised citizens from countries not on the list.
America has covered up Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks in order to target mostly secular, not Islamic, Ba’athist linked countries in the Middle East.
OH, BY THE WAY…
All seven countries have been attacked by the United States and its allies in attempts to install neoliberal “democracy”, AKA colonialism, to prevent the death of the petrodollar.
.. AND THERE IS MORE
General Wesley Clark mentioned on Democracy Now that, 10 days after 9/11, both Pentagon Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Assistant Secretary Paul Wolfowitz planned to lie in order to go to war against seven Muslim nations.
Those nations were Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.
SO, WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
The purpose of the Muslim Ban was to subjugate oil-producing countries that stop trading oil in USD (petrodollar).
Libya, Iraq, Iran, Syria, India, Russia, China, and others no longer use USD to trade oil, which is destroying US control of oil markets; precisely why Trump chose to work with former ExxonMobile CEO Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State.
