The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (The McCarran-Walter Act)

NOTE: Although we do not agree with the direction that the United States Congress has taken in late 2018 going into 2019 as relates to Muslims “serving” in public office – which does not even include Political offices in various state and other Federal positions… there are many “stories” going around the nation which state that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 prevented Muslims from holding Public Office. What follows below would seem to be a more reasonable assessment, yet what we are witnessing across the land – would appear to indicate a further erosion of this nation’s sovereignty. This does not change our mind… ~ Ed.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 upheld the national origins quota system established by the Immigration Act of 1924, reinforcing this controversial system of immigrant selection.

It also ended Asian exclusion from immigrating to the United States and introduced a system of preferences based on skill sets and family reunification. Situated in the early years of the Cold War, the debate over the revision of U.S. immigration law demonstrated a division between those interested in the relationship between immigration and foreign policy, and those linking immigration to concerns over national security.

    Fully agreed Goldbut – yet my purpose for posting this – is the fact that how this has been represented in the (CON-servative movement) is that ‘MacCarran-Walter’ prevented them from holding office. That is not the way I read the bill. What I read placed controls on the types that could legally “enter” enter the country.. Because of that I believe that there has been a misunderstanding as to the “running for office” part.

    But hey – I am open to discussion on the issue. Follow the title link in the first paragraph. What has been posted on Wikipedia is intensely detailed – but be forewarned – there are MANY embedded links in that post. Thank yu for your continued input and participation.

    By electing Muslims to Congress and various political positions around the country, we are, in effect, turning our country over to the Islamic Caliphate intent on our destruction. Is that “fair” to the people who built this country? Multiculturism does NOT work.
