‘No, the Constitution Does Not Bar Religious Tests in Immigration Law’

from Free North Carolina)

Via Mike

Properly vetting would-be immigrants’ religious beliefs is not only legal — it would be wise and prudent. Of all the ignorant pronouncements in the 2016 presidential campaign, the dumbest may be that the Constitution forbids a “religious test” in the vetting of immigrants. Monotonously repeated in political speeches and talking-head blather, this claim is heedless of the Islamic doctrinal roots on which foreign-born Islamists and the jihadists they breed base their anti-Americanism. It is also dead wrong.

The clause said to be the source of this drivel is found in Article VI. As you’ll no doubt be shocked to learn, it has utterly nothing to do with immigration. The clause states, “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States” (emphasis added). On its face, the provision is not only inapplicable to immigrants at large, let alone aliens who would like to be immigrants; it does not even apply to the general public. It is strictly limited to public officials — specifically to their fitness to serve in government positions.

  1. And the left is more than happy to ‘kill’ us…

  2. And it never, ever occurs to the Left that appeasement merely delays the inevitable. Since they’re unable to think for themselves, they miss the obvious conclusion: since they hate guns so much, they’ll be defenseless when the push-back reaches their doors.

  3. The thing is, the Khan family isn’t just your average run of the mill Gold Star family. Ever wonder how out of all the families that lost loved ones over the years, the Khan family was the one to go on national TV?
    He worked for the law firm that has deep ties to the Saudis, the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton campaign.
    Follow the money…

    Yes, the whole “religious test” kerfuffle is just more sleight of hand by the MSM to distract from Clintoons dishonesty.

  4. They already do apply a religious test – very few Christians are being allowed in as refugees. I was shocked when my church was able to bring in a Christian family from Myammar.
