ALERT: Obama Violates Federal Law to Allow Iranians in U.S. for TREASONOUS Purpose
“Give a boy a fish and you feed him for a day, but teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Obama’s administration just twisted this old axiom for a very disturbing purpose. The State Department recently reversed its interpretation of a law banning Iranian students from studying nuclear engineering.
This Monday, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., issued a press release criticizing the drastic reversal of the policy.
“The State Department’s position allowing Iranians to study nuclear science in the U.S. is extremely concerning, and we need some answers immediately,” Vitter stated.
Vitter continued, “We currently have strict sanctions on Iran because of their nuclear threat — so training Iranians in the nuclear field at taxpayer funded U.S. colleges doesn’t add up. Universities shouldn’t be forced to make national security decisions — that’s the job of the Administration.”
The original ban was put in place to comply with the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 that makes it illegal for Iranians to be issued a visa to study in the United States if they plan to enter the nuclear or energy fields.
In a bizarre move given the political climate, the State Department has now taken the position that a blanket ban is an incorrect interpretation of the law. They encourage Iranian applicants be evaluated for admission on an individual basis (H/T Breitbart).
As made clear by Vitter’s letter to the State Department, lifting the ban forces “universities into the unnecessary position of deciding whether or not to allow students from countries we currently have economic sanctions against — Iran in particular — to pursue specifically restricted material.”
“The Department of State absolutely should not be putting our educators in a position of deciding what constitutes a danger to the national security of the United States,” Vitter wrote. “That is the Administration’s job.”
Vitter is right. It would be Obama’s job if he wasn’t so busy teaching our enemies how to build nuclear weapons.
Obama is revising the old adage into something treasonous: “Teach a terrorist how to make a bomb and make him a terrorist for a lifetime.”
