Jimmy Carter Banned Iranians from Entering the U.S. — Guess He Was Disqualified for President Just Like Trump?

| |


Ever since Trump called for the shutting down of Muslims entering the U.S. until the government can figure out what is going on in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting, the attacks in Paris, and the burgeoning Syrian conflict, he has been called everything in the press from a racist Islamophobe to worse than Voldemort, the villain the Harry Potter series.

A few days ago the White House essentially disqualified Trump from running for president for comments he made on the campaign trail about banning Muslims from entering the U.S. until an appropriate vetting process can be created.

In a nearly unprecedented fashion, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest inserted the Obama Administration into the presidential race by directly responding to Trump’s comments:

“The fact is the first thing a President does when he or she takes the oath of office is to swear an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. And the fact is that what Donald Trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as President.”

Guess that means former President Jimmy Carter is also disqualified as well, because back in 1980, he cut ties with Iran and banned all Iranians from coming into the U.S. period.

During the Iranian hostage crisis, President Carter broke diplomatic relations with Iran, forced all Iranian diplomats and officials to leave the U.S. by midnight of the day the order was issued, cut all remaining trade between the U.S. and Iran, and invalidated all Iranian visas, only issuing new ones or renewing old ones for “unusual circumstances”.

Of the decision, Carter said:

The Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.


The steps I have ordered today are those that are necessary now. Other action may become necessary if these steps do not produce the prompt release of the hostages.

Front Page Mag reports:

Apparently barring people from a terrorist country is not against “our values” after all. It may even be “who we are”. Either that or Carter was a racist monster just like Trump.

Meanwhile here’s how the Iranian students in the US were treated.

Carter orders 50,000 Iranian students in US to report to immigration office with view to deporting those in violation of their visas. On 27 December 1979, US appeals court allows deportation of Iranian students found in violation.

In November 1979, the Attorney General had given all Iranian students one month to report to the local immigration office. Around 7,000 were found in violation of their visas. Around 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the US.

So no, it isn’t unprecedented for a president to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

Some will argue that Carter banned a country and Trump is “banning a religion,” but the intention is similar either way. Actually, Trump is suggesting a better vetting process; Carter just said no Iranians period.

Funny, if Trump is such a horrifying racist monster for making the comment, why are his poll numbers continuing to surge?

  • Not all Iranians are muslims, and not all muslims are ignorant political and religious extremists. If Trump weren’t as equally ignorant as the jihadis, he’d recognize that it is as easy to act like a Christian or Jew is it is a Muslim. That being the case, we don’t think that our intelligence agencies are any more interested in protecting us from terrorist attacks than the American Cancer Society is in eliminating cancer, for similar reasons.

    This issue is about burned-out. Trump has been cleared.

  • Trump is a fascist.
    Clinton is a neo-con.
    Pick your poison.

  • Reverend Draco

    I’m sure that people will take this out of context and call Trump a racist and an Islamaphobe and every other name they can think of just to distract people from the actual message he is trying to give. He is saying the same thing as many state governors who don’t want unvetted refugees with likely terrorists mixed in with them coming to America without some form of vetting process.
    He also said that once the problem is fixed and the Muslims can be separated from the terrorists that he has no problem helping the refugees. But nobody is making sure that people hear that part of his speech. It’s just more NBC tactics of editing and omission of what people say so they sound like racists and bigots.
    I don’t have a problem with his suggestion. I don’t want a bunch of terrorists brought here without knowing who they are or if they pose a threat to us, and neither do most Americans. And these lying politicians can twist our words and distract people with “religious tests” and “racism” and “Islamaphobia” but this isn’t about any of that rhetoric. This is about public safety, period.
    This is about keeping the bad guys out. What good does it do to bring in refugees who are trying to escape from war and terrorists if we are going to bring them in with the terrorists that they were trying to escape from? Why try to save their lives only to have them die here from a terrorist that we brought here? It makes no sense! And finally when somebody comes along and makes a sensible plan and offers a logical course of action, a suggestion that many other people also have made, all the Obama supporters and Muslim sympathizers come out of the woodwork and cry Islamaphobia and racism.
    And of course the Obama administration comes out and says that Trump is not qualified to be president because he suggested doing something that past presidents have already done, which makes them look like fools because they didn’t do their homework.

    • if you really want to “keep the bad guys out” consider starting by clearing the UN and the Fed

  • Gearmoe

    Progressives don’t want to see facts.

  • Mick Price

    “So no, it isn’t unprecedented for a president to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.”
    Yes it is. Scummy as Carter’s actions were, he was banning a NATIONALITY, not a religion. There’s nothing in the constitution about freedom of nationality.

    • the sheeple is getting dangerously close to the same level of accuracy as the MSM

      • Mick Price

        Yeah they don’t want to be accurate. The sheeple buy newspapers and watch the news so that tey can present themselves as not ignorant, not to gain knowledge. That’s the real problem with the MSM.

  • ” he cut ties with Iran and banned all Iranians from coming into the U.S. period.”
    Uh, no… he didn’t…
    From your own article, the quote from Carters EO includes:

    … nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons…”
    By the way Mark, there’s a difference between a country and a religion, when it comes to our Constitution. Besides, the criminals will always lie: if someone wants in to this country to do us harm, do you honestly think they’re going to be shouting “allah Akbar” at the baggage check, or do you think they might claim to be something other than Muslim to gain entry..?
