Congress passed the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, which President Obama signed into law. It directed the Executive Branch to designate nations which were unable to perform adequate background checks on its own citizens to identify terrorists. Travel from those nations was banned to prevent terrorists from slipping into the country. Obama’s Department of Homeland Security identified seven nations but took no action to block inadequately vetted immigrants. President Trump adopted an Executive Order to implement the existing law. Liberals exploded in outrage over implementation of their own law and dubbed it the “Muslim Travel Ban.”
Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 which became law when Bill Clinton failed to veto it. The law requires the United States embassy to be located in Jerusalem unless the President signs a waiver on national security grounds, every six months. President Trump declined to certify that moving our embassy posed a threat to the nation’s security so the embassy is moving. Liberals are exploding in outrage over implementation of their own law.
I suspect Liberals’ real grievance is they never intended those laws to be implemented – they were simply virtue signaling theatre intended to hoax the yokels. Who could imagine a President would faithfully execute the law?
Pretty radical concept.
