US Implements Travel Ban On Communist Party Members

All Communist Party members have been banned from travelling to the United States

Washington has decided to prohibit Communist Party members from immigrating into the country, according to new policy guidance issued by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) last Friday. The measure is an indirect form of provocation against the Chinese leadership.

The USCIS announced that anyone who is or has been a member of or affiliated with a Communist or totalitarian party cannot immigrate to America. The agency said the policy was adopted in order to implement a broader set of laws passed by the Congress to address threats to the safety and security of the country.

The notice at the US Citizenship and Immigration Services web page states:

On Oct. 2, USCIS issued policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to address inadmissibility based on membership in or affiliation with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party. Membership in or affiliation with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party is inconsistent and incompatible with the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, which includes pledging to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States.”

… In general, unless otherwise exempt, any intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States…

The inadmissibility ground for membership in or affiliation with the Communist or any other totalitarian party is part of a broader set of laws passed by Congress to address threats to the safety and security of the United States. In general, unless otherwise exempt, any immigrant who is or has been a member of or affiliated with the Communist or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States. This ground of inadmissibility only applies to aliens seeking immigrant status, such as aliens inside the United States applying to adjust status to that of a lawful permanent resident. LINK

While the announcement and associated measures don’t mention China specifically, it is clear that China is the target of the third ‘Red Scare’ to sweep the United States. Thousands of people were deported from the US during the first Red Scare (1917-1920), and the Communist Party was banned in the aftermath of the ‘Second Red Scare’ (1946-54), a ban which remains on the law books but has rarely been implemented (there is still a small Communist Party in the United States, though it cannot participate in elections).

The move is the latest in a long line of actions the Trump administration has taken in the midst of heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing, which includes an attempt to block Chinese-owned apps including TikTok and WeChat from operating in the US, the expulsion of some Chinese diplomats and sanctions against Hong Kong officials, the ongoing trade war, and a record number of US military aircraft and warships conducting patrols and drills along China’s maritime borders in the Pacific.

In July US media reported that the Trump administration was considering banning travel to the United States by all members of the Communist Party and their families, and that senior US officials had begun circulating a draft of a possible presidential order.

The ban denies entry to the United States by the nearly 92 million members of the 99-year-old political party, which encompasses members from all levels of the Chinese society from the top political and business elites to the grass roots.

When it was first reported that the Trump administration was considering imposing a travel ban on Communist Party members in July, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying responded to a question from reporters on the possible ban: “If that is true, I think that is utterly pathetic.”

Speaking of US-China relations generally she said: “We know that some in the US are oppressing China and bullying China. As an independent sovereign state, China must respond to the bullying practices and we must say no, we must… take reactive moves to it.”

The foreign ministry official further commented: “If the reports are true, the US is choosing to stand in opposition to all the 1.4 billion Chinese people, which is standing in opposition against one-fifth of the world’s population,” Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

“This would be against the will of the people in both nations and against the trend of the 21st century, and is very ridiculous.”

Hua said the party was deeply embedded into Chinese society and was integral to the success of the Chinese nation.

“The leadership of the Communist Party is the fundamental feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Under the leadership of the Communist Party, the Chinese people won independence, freedom and liberation,” she said. “The path of socialism with Chinese characteristics has not only helped the Chinese people get rid of poverty, it has also made a huge contribution to the advancement of mankind.” LINK

The practical effect of the ban is likely to be minimal in the immediate future, as although around three million Chinese visited the US last year, very few people have been travelling following the coronavirus outbreak.

Other Chinese have also expressed doubt that the move will have any significant effect. Among other things Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of Chinese state tabloid Global Times said on Sunday that not many Chinese are interested in going to the United States at the moment.

Soros and Clintons are in bed with China. I use generic names for well known elites.

Captain Freedom

they are trained sellouts, when BLM was founded they opposed Israel, but they suddenly changed their opinion about that right when soreass started using them as enforcers for his color-coded revolutions.

Daily Beatings

Get the Gohan look, and go Super Saiyan.

Daily Beatings

We have to be honest, Trump could never rock the Vin Diesel like Xi.

Laurent Parodi

What s funny is that by printing money and keeping interest rates very low the US is destroying the free markets and creating administrated prices. Even worse the US is full of too big to fail firms which means whatever they do they will be saved so it is the death of capitalism.
The US has become an administrated economy which means that right now the US is more communist than China.

Pave Way IV

For clarity’s sake, you should use the more descriptive chimp-administered economy.

Jens Holm

Its normal tax for specific countries and products.

We already has many of them fx on fuel, cigarettes, cars and chocolate. Even less develloped countries like Yours can handle it.

Pave Way IV

Jens, quit picking on the underdeveloped U.S. – We’re in the middle of an economic chimp-out here. We will throw poop at Denmark if it comes to that. Don’t push our small simian brains over the edge. The consequences would be terrible, and we would still retake our ancestral homeland of Greenland. Your sniper princess won’t be able to help you.

Jens Holm

You probatly also would be offended, if You only was described frorm, whats comming put from Your behind….

Its as I say. USA and EU has given China a lot of help for their devellopment and the Chinese and are4 now in the worldmarket by unfair prices as well as they protect their homemarket by letting no producers and devellopers in as owners.

So instead of agreemnents to China by they again are selling and importing to fair prices – which they deny – we put a standard tax on their products as well as have focus on their lack of control for selling us sometimes devastating third class products.

And we send poops to You too. Denmark is not alone in this and USA as well.

Greenland belongs to the Inuits and they today are autonomes and as number one decide. We donty sell people. It also belong to us.

You dont know who we are in those matters even parts of Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Northern German was a part of us.

A typicqal one was after WW1m where we voted half of the old dfanish territory back to us from Germany, because the locals prefared Preussen.

By that we got the best relations with them as well as the rest of Germany but certainly not the Nazis in them. We also avoided WW1 as neutra and hoped the same for WW2 in a unit with Norway and Sweden.

We are not as so many boiling hotheads with heads under arms as we see so many places and now again in Caucasus.

Our Premiere Minister has told Trump and his madness, what we think about it. But we are not as overcooking dirty stew but mainly think more and decide better – slow. And we do have organs for acting fast, where we think we need.

I have mentioned it before. Its not luck we fx has handled and do handle Corona much better then most. When You today see we have raisig Corona it s because we chack much better then most not because it growing and maybee oit of hands.

USA has vital probæems, but they are not as vital as You hope at all. They most likely will decline but they will not collapse in Chaos. They have no structure for that even in some matters are thinner, then we think it should be.

Jens Holm

There is no free maket with China. EU says same thing.

China is dumping and they dont allow us to go i onto their market. That where the unbalance is.

If things cost 10% less then they should 10% in tax i equalizing. China for may years has been helped by an open economy. China for years dont have that neeed and we need to compete in China.

Daily Beatings

“There is no free maket with China.”

That’s why the number one automaker in China is … Volkswagen. Every time you post the ignorance just flows.

Traiano Welcome

Speaking of Volkswagen, I was unaware this bastion of Capitalism was also into Feudal Economics and Slave Labour, and had such a long illustrious history of forced labour:

Daily Beatings

Old habits are hard to break, but someone told me they’re working on a final solution.

Jens Holm

So many are not working for any better solutions at all – They are working against them.

Jens Holm

Its very strange You dont see Kapitalisme are in several versions and even the best has a backside too.

Socialisme came as a compensater for this where I live. For about 150 years ago the Commuunists split up in commnunist which thoight the proletars should take over. But here in Europe a great part made the Social Democrats, which wanted to be deciders in line with liberals and konservative.

By that they got influence and has been able to move rights as well as responsibilities to more people and the poorest ones too. Furthermore the results mainly by tax and social reforms.

By that You can united cointries in relative peacefull versions of consensus, which we think is much better then uprises and riotisme.

But that system is not perfect but its forgotten, that people decide themself and You should not just blame the rich onesbut poor people or many of them too.

Forced laubor as we see it in Denmark works well. You have to work to get. It makes no sense demanding the rich to give the poor ones money for nothing or be robbers and kil them.

I am very much aware, that it dont work for all.

So my choise is like we have it now, because I see nothing better.

And I do write here again whay my Western System does. We all gpto school, many educate themself, so they can take advanced jobs. We find skills. We work hard and we are paid for, what we actuallly do.

Hardly none here even comment that investmenrt pays of and debate for changes. Our wellfare are not send from heaven ir by plundering the poor. The main part is made by Ourself. By that we should not give much to people, which deny change.

The main lack is like that. ere half of the population cant even be debated as well. Vomen as second or third class citicens not even count in the fabricated statistics and fx in Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq 50% of the MEN has no jobs. Women are much higher…

And they cant opr wont change.

Immediate ban on Communist Party members immigrating to the U.S…. however, our various Middle-East al-Nusra contract employees and their families are always welcome in the land of the free. I hope the head-choppers requested their mail-in ballots early. You know how unreliable the postal service in northern Syria can be. Damn you, Assad!

occupybacon

If Trump wins Russia hacked the elections, if Teump lose, China and Iran hacked the elections.

Pave Way IV

The U.S. must launch a preventative attack against the world to save ourselves. Our enemies are everywhere. RRReeeeeeEEEEeee!

occupybacon

They could print dollars and throw them from miltary airplanes, the rest of the world will kill each other in few hours. Cleanest bomb possible.

paolinks

WaPo and MSM say it isn’t so.

occupybacon

Daily occupybacon factcheck: Fake News!

paolinks

But but but the God of perversion ( Soros ) said they always write the holy truth.

occupybacon

I’d trust Goebles News over Soros News.

Zionism = EVIL

As if the dumbass deadbeat Americunt sanctions mean anything. LOL

Vox Populi

US acts like a banana republic.

occupybacon

They have more cotton to pick up

Traiano Welcome

So, they ban communist party members from having a future in the USA and this is supposed to make the CCP sad … ?

Xi Jinping must be laughing on his throne.

paolinks

Also it will be seen as an attack on the chinese people too! Very stupid move. I am 99% sure Pompeo is the mastermind behind this idiocy.

Traiano Welcome

Primarily it helps the CCP with their major concern that wealthy Chinese in industry may be seeking to immigrate to the USA contributing to a Chinese “brain drain” and capital flight.

This just does the CCP a massive favour by sending the Chinese a message that the US may not be a good investment and second retirement destination …

Vox Populi

China and Russia are not impressed by impotent US threats. US is largely isolated and not taken seriously by anyone. It is a failed unraveling financially and politically distressed entity.

Traiano Welcome

“It is a failed unraveling financially and politically distressed entity”

Failing, not failed (yet) and still dangerous in it’s death throes.

Daily Beatings

Last year the difference between the nominal GDP of China and USA was about 7 trillion. This year it’s projected to be 5 trillion. MAGA (Make Asia Great Again).

Traiano Welcome

Indeed. Now, if one questions whether GDP is a meaningful measure of anything at all, the 7/5 trillion difference is even less of an indicator of the gap between China and the USA.

At least this economist thinks that GDP measures nothing:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn39vHu0tm8

As far as I can tell China has already caught up in PPP and sheer productive capacity, both of which are meaningful in terms of impact on the real world.

Daily Beatings

You are preaching to the choir my friend, but your insight is always appreciated.

Traiano Welcome

Amen. Let me go pick on tzatz and Iron_Zion instead.

johnny rotten

The Chinese are the majority of students who enroll each year in the most prestigious universities, without them they risk closing, it does not seem a very smart move.

Jens Holm

They dont risk closing at all. In one hand we will help and ceratinly for the ones, which pay for themselves.

BUT in the other hand we se so many spies and copycats of theirs amd also gets in a lt of copy stuff, wjhicjh not even keep safety matters in simply electric installations in them.

And they ceratinly steal advanced patents and ignore they are there and we normally pay to people having made the inventions for some years.

Medicine in copies with not the correct treatment is very very bad and mpre and more gets killed by that.

Alberto Garza

no one wants spies and saboteurs .

Traiano Welcome

The American Government seems to welcome them with open arms if they’re Jewish.

NatureTruth

Indians too, who are now one of most powerful lobby group infiltrating US & West gov.

Daily Beatings

That sucking sound you hear is all the brain drain heading back to China. Gender studies and psychology majors will be the only ones left. We’re screwed.

Traiano Welcome

LOL!!!

Lone Ranger

Thats means most the DNC has to be deported now…

Антон С

Have to check calendar: hm, it’s still 5th of October, not 1st of April.

cechas vodobenikov

the amerikan facist mind fears that their LGBT fragility could be exposed to civilization; amerikans prefer their BLM plywood villages

ecocivilian

hahaha covid has really disrupted their poor brains i wonder if they have some left in the cranial cavity or is that only pigeon p…p US the idiocracy of the 21st century

Freemon Sandlewould

So democrats won’t be allowed to travel?

NatureTruth

“The ban denies entry to the United States by the nearly 92 million members of the 99-year-old political party, which encompasses members from all levels of the Chinese society from the top political and business elites to the grass roots.”

So all China officials from Prez down to Embassy & UN staffs are not allowed to enter US? Time to move UN and all organizations out of rogue USA.

verner

I worked there and I was/am a dirty rotten commie but sínce it was before the ultimate hysteria rotting the country from within, it was alright.
