Trump promises IDEOLOGICAL SCREENING for potential immigrants if reelected as president
Former President Donald Trump has pledged to implement strict ideological screening for all immigrants seeking entry to the U.S. if reelected in 2024.
He announced this proposal during an Oct. 16 speech at a campaign event in Iowa. The measure “would amount to a sweeping overhaul of America’s immigration system” if implemented and could definitely face legal challenges.
“No longer will we allow dangerous lunatics, haters, bigots and maniacs to get residency in our country,” Trump told his supporters during the event. He warned that those who “empathize with radical Islamic terrorists and extremists,” wish to “abolish the state of Israel” or “support Hamas,” and the ideology behind it would be “disqualified” from potential citizenship. Communists, Marxists and fascists would likewise be disqualified, Trump added.
The former president cited the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel as a main factor behind his proposal, and his advocacy toward hardline immigration issues. “The atrocities in Israel are a horrific reminder that immigration security is national security,” Trump said. “The purpose of U.S. immigration law is not to protect the world–it’s to protect the United States of America.”
Aside from ideological screening, Trump also promised to suspend refugee resettlement once more. He also pledged to reinstate a travel ban on predominantly Muslim countries he put in place during his term, with a planned expansion. Trump also vowed to proactively deploy Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to address pro-jihadist demonstrations and remove immigration law violators from the country.

Trump: U.S. shouldn’t accept refugees from countries undermining national security
During his speech, Trump also underlined the importance of supporting Israel in its ongoing conflict with Hamas. One way of doing so, he added, is refusing to take in ” anyone from Gaza, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Libya or anywhere else that threatens [American] security.”
Two of Trump’s Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives appeared to support his sentiment. Wisconsin Rep. Tom Tiffany and Tennessee Rep. Andy Ogles recently introduced the Guaranteeing Aggressors Zero Admission (GAZA) Act, which prohibits the Biden administration from importing refugees from Gaza – including any Hamas operatives that may blend in.
Under the GAZA Act, the Biden administration cannot issue visas to refugees holding Palestinian Authority passports. The Department of Homeland Security cannot use its parole pipeline to accept Palestinian refugees into the United States.
“At a time when the threat of terrorism is not only grotesquely on display but being encouraged and justified, it is critical that we do our best to ensure the security of our nation,” Ogles stated, explaining the necessity of the legislation, especially in times of war.
“Following the horrific attack by Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists on innocent Israeli civilians, the last thing America ought to do is trust identity documents issued by the radicals that oversee these territories,” Tiffany said. “We need to put our security at home first, and that starts by closing the door to bad actors who might be seeking to enter our country.”
