"EXTREME VETTING" ESCALATES: U.S. VISA APPLICANTS MUST NOW TURN OVER THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA HISTORY

The Trump administration has implemented a new policy, effective on Friday, that now asks most applicants for U.S. visas to provide information on their use of social media, according to The Hill.

Even temporary visitors will be required to list their social media identifiers in a drop-down menu, along with other personal information, when applying. Applicants for visas will be given the option to say that they don’t use social media, but if they are found to be lying, they could face "serious immigration consequences", according to a U.S. Department of State official.

A spokesperson for the Department of State said:

“This is a critical step forward in establishing enhanced vetting of foreign nationals seeking entry into the United States. As we’ve seen around the world in recent years, social media can be a major forum for terrorist sentiment and activity. This will be a vital tool to screen out terrorists, public safety threats, and other dangerous individuals from gaining immigration benefits and setting foot on U.S. soil."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder, if I were out of the country, and looking to head back toward our home, if DHS would consider me "suspect", as a Christian pacifist activist?!?

Folks, this is getting... just a little scary out there!
