Why Supreme Court’s Travel Ban Loophole Threatens Liberal Academia
In the wake of the Supreme Court‘s ruling partially reinstating Trump’s travel ban until its full review in October, the high court created a potential loophole: A credible claim of a bona fide relationship to the United States can defeat the Government’s compelling need for national security.
The Supreme Court cautioned that someone who enters into a relationship simply to avoid the travel ban would not qualify: “For example, a nonprofit group devoted to immigration issues may not contact foreign nationals from the designated countries, add them to client lists, and then secure their entry by claiming injury from their exclusion.” (Ok, you nonprofits, you’ve been warned, so listen up on how to do it right.)
So who has a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States that would give rise to protection from the travel ban?
- A foreign national with a “close familial relationship” such as a spouse or mother-in-law;
- “students from the designated countries who have been admitted to [a American university]”;
- “a worker who accepted an offer of employment from an American company”;
- “a lecturer invited to address an American audience”;
- “[a]s for entities, the relationship must be formal, documented, and formed in the ordinary course, rather than for the purpose of evading [the ban]”.
The Left now has the legal parameters it needs to effectively defeat executive orders preventing entry of foreign nationals into the United States. And rest assured the Left will use these guidelines in any upcoming immigration battle as well. Just imagine what will happen when the Left gets creative.
In addition to marriage, a foreign national affected by the travel ban can still become a student accepted at an American university, can get a job from any American company, or can just become a “lecturer” invited to speak to any American audience. Did you catch that? If you live in Yemen and are accepted to any American university, then BAM! You’re in; your extended family is in; anyone you invite as a lecturer is in. What a great deal! Then, just form an American company online and your “employees” can come too. So what happens when someone gets the clever idea to fabricate their own universities or companies as loophole gateways to the New American Dream? Let’s speculate:
The Islamic American University is already a real thing, as is the Islamic Studies Program at Michigan University. Consider when the ultra-devout Muslims create their own American-based online universities as platforms for establishing bona fide relationships for like-minded extremists to escape future travel bans. Suddenly the wide world of made-up college courses can be stretched beyond credulity. You thought a major in underwater basket weaving was a joke? Just think of all the new neat classes you could take! PLUS you’re getting a free pass into the United States!
For your degree in Extremist Art, you’ll take courses on things like Advanced Burqua and Hijab Embroidery, a Practical Seminar on Qu’ran Calligraphy, and The Beauty of Iconoclasm.
For your History Major, take classes such as History of the Glorious Ottoman Empire, The Fall and Coming Rise of the Caliphate, and Ongoing Revenge for the Crusades.
If you’re working towards a Business degree, take more practical classes like Beat Your Wife and Blow up Buildings 101, Outbreeding the Infidel and Why Mormons are the Only Real Threat, and Luscious Mustaches and Fabulous Hats: Entrepreneurship for the Aspiring Dictator.
For more ambitious students, take the LSAT and get admitted to the National Sharia Law School. Or take the MCAT and get into The Anti-Medical-Advancements Medical School and learn proper techniques to mutilate women.
And can you imagine the coursework for such majors as Women and Gender Studies? It goes without saying that women won’t be allowed in as students, but it’s ok because they’ll get to come over to the United States as wives and mothers-in-law.
Then, after you’ve brought over a full set of faculty and staff, you can start employing janitors from Somalia and secretaries from Iran, and your university is fully operational.
All joking aside, let’s be serious for a moment. The irony of the Left’s lock on higher education and use of the law to frustrate the Constitution is about to get real. What happens when the best, most effective avenue for Extremist Muslim Infiltration becomes the Ivory Tower of American Academia?
Suddenly, we have the ultimate in reactive 6th-century-oppresion ultra-radicals of Islam jumping into the American university system, overwhelming the once-hallowed halls of Liberal Indoctrination. The Left’s chokehold on Education might be broken at last. American Christians and Conservatives have always been too timid and tolerant to stand up to Liberal Bias in colleges. Our kids have been going away for school and coming back as pro-LGBT, Pro-Climate Cultism, Pro-Socialism, Pro-Open Borders, Pro-Relativism, Anti-Christian, Anti-Capitalism Bleeding-Heart-Liberals for decades, and yet no one has made any meaningful resistance. All of our energy has been squandered in masturbatory echo-chambers and choir-preaching. We haven’t figured out how to convert our righteous indignation into effective political action, maybe because we’re too scared that it will require too much of us.
But do you know who IS willing to sacrifice their lives for their beliefs? The men and women of Extremist Islam. And do you think for one minute that they’re going to tolerate the Modernist/Feminist/Communist/Social Engineering that has come to characterize higher education in this country? Nope, Nope and Nope. As the university system becomes flooded with devout Muslim Foreign Nationals as a loophole for the travel bans and immigration controls, they will quickly make the system their own. Just imagine when, instead of coming home from college as Liberals, your kids come home from college as Muslims.
Why bring the Mountain to Mohammed when you can bring Mohammed to the American University that’s waiting for him with open arms?
Mr. Saul Alinsky, meet Mohammed.
