“This looks like a massive watering down of our immigration restrictions against members of terrorist organizations,” said former U.S. State Department special adviser Gabriel Noronha.

Last week, the U.S. Department of State, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), altered federal immigration law so that non-citizens who provided “insignificant material support” to designated terror groups are now eligible to receive “immigration benefits or other status” in the United States.

The change was reported by the Washington Free Beacon, citing a policy published in the Federal Register, which is the official journal of the U.S. federal government. The Beacon noted that the policy had not been formally announced by the administration.

“Examples of individuals who would fall into the new category, according to the announcement, include individuals who provided ‘humanitarian assistance’ or ‘routine commercial transactions’ to terror groups,” reported the Free Beacon.

上周,美国国务院与国土安全部 (DHS) 一起修改了联邦移民法,以便向指定恐怖组织提供“微不足道的物质支持”的非公民现在有资格获得“移民福利或其他身份”在美国。

华盛顿自由灯塔报道了这一变化,引用了美国联邦政府官方期刊《联邦公报》上公布的一项政策。信标指出,政府尚未正式宣布该政策。

“根据公告,属于新类别的个人示例包括向恐怖组织提供‘人道主义援助’或‘常规商业交易’的个人,”自由灯塔报道。

According to the report, the Biden administration has made it “easier for individuals who have worked with designated terrorist groups to legally enter the United States.”

Speculation with regard to the agenda fueling the change in policy pointed to potential overtures by the Biden administration to individuals associated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), a designated terror group responsible for the deaths of Israelis, Americans, and citizens of other nations around the world.

Iran remains the world’s top state-sponsor of terrorism, in addition to the primary source on instability in the Middle East, directing and arming terror proxy armies in Lebanon, Syria, and the Gaza Strip.

根据该报告,拜登政府已经让“与指定恐怖组织合作的个人更容易合法进入美国”。

关于推动政策变化的议程的猜测表明,拜登政府可能向与伊朗伊斯兰革命卫队 (IRGC) 相关的个人示好,这是一个指定的恐怖组织,负责以色列人、美国人和其他国家公民的死亡世界各地。

伊朗仍然是世界上最大的恐怖主义国家支持者,除了中东不稳定的主要来源之外,它还指挥和武装黎巴嫩、叙利亚和加沙地带的恐怖代理人军队。

自由灯塔报道说:“国务院发言人表示,在拜登政府的拙劣撤军导致塔利班掌权后,该法律已被修改,以帮助可能无意中与恐怖组织合作的弱势阿富汗人在美国避难。”

然而,新规定可能适用于其他恐怖组织,例如基地组织。

“A State Department spokesman said the law was amended to help vulnerable Afghans, who might have inadvertently worked with terror groups, gain refuge in the United States following the Biden administration’s bungled withdrawal that left the Taliban in power,” reported the Free Beacon.

The new regulations, however, could apply to other terror groups, such as al Qaeda.

The Free Beacon report quoted Gabriel Noronha, a former State Department special adviser for Iran now serves as a fellow with the Jewish Institute for National Security of America

“This looks like a massive watering down of our immigration restrictions against members of terrorist organizations,” concluded Noronha.

According to the State Department, the changes “are an effort to address issues related to Afghanistan” and don’t apply “to people who have received military-type training from [foreign terrorist organizations], including IRGC conscripts.”

“When the Free Beacon requested additional information and an explanation as to why the IRGC or similar groups would not be covered by the changes, the State Department declined to answer, saying, ‘We have no further information or comments to share.’ This lack of clarity is fueling concerns about the policy change,” added the Free Beacon report.

“At best this is a horribly written regulation. At worst, it’s an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of Congress and the American people and make it easier for terrorists to come to America,” Noronha concluded.

“这看起来像是对我们对恐怖组织成员的移民限制的大规模淡化,”诺罗尼亚总结道。

根据国务院的说法,这些变化“是为了解决与阿富汗有关的问题”,并不适用于“接受过[外国恐怖组织]军事训练的人,包括伊斯兰革命卫队应征入伍的人”。

“当自由灯塔要求提供更多信息并解释为什么 IRGC 或类似团体不会被更改覆盖时,国务院拒绝回答,称‘我们没有进一步的信息或评论可分享。’这种缺乏明确性加剧了对政策变化的担忧,”Free Beacon 报告补充道。

“充其量这是一个可怕的书面规定。在最坏的情况下,这是企图掩盖国会和美国人民的视线,让恐怖分子更容易来到美国,”诺罗尼亚总结道。

A host of other experts quoted in the Free Beacon report, including former White House National Security Council advisor Richard Goldberg and several Republican lawmakers, rang alarms over the new regulation based on their potential to help individuals linked to Iranian terror groups.
