    President-elect Donald Trump is planning executive actions and proposed legislation on border security in the first 100 days, according to a transition team official. Answering a question from Breitbart News on a conference call with reporters, Trump transition team spokesman Jason Miller reacted to the news that the Obama administration had scrapped the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System. Miller indicated that there would “much more to come” in response to the decision, as Trump finished making appointments in the necessary areas of government dealing with border security and immigration. “The national policy team and the incoming cabinet and administration members...

    The American Civil Liberties Union hailed President Obama on Thursday for scrapping the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), a Bush-era program used to screen and track certain individuals coming to the United States from mostly Middle Eastern countries where al Qaida was present. The program was launched on Sept. 11, 2002, a year after the 9/11 attacks, and although it was suspended in 2011 by the Obama administration, some groups have warned that incoming President Donald Trump could reactivate it as a “Muslim registry.” Under NSEERS, male foreign visitors over the age of 16, either arriving or staying in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration said Thursday it is officially scrapping a post-9/11 requirement for immigrant men from predominantly Muslim countries to register with the federal government. The U.S. hasn't been using the program since 2011, but a top immigration adviser to President-elect Donald Trump has spoken of renewing it.

    The Obama administration is officially ending a post-9/11 era registration system for immigrant men from mostly Muslim countries. The decision to scrap the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System comes amid growing international terror fears and President-elect Donald Trump’s suggestions that he could ban Muslim immigrants from the United States.

    Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio seems well meaning enough. As second-generation conservative Americans, I know we both share a common passion for this great land of opportunity. But when it comes to comprehending the real agenda of the open-borders zealots he's allied himself with, Rubio doesn't have a clue. And his abject ignorance threatens all of us who cherish American sovereignty and exceptionalism. On Fox News' "The Sean Hannity Show" Tuesday night, Rubio defended his Gang of Eight "immigration reform" bill and insisted that we could and should have a system in place that vets foreign tourists and short-term visa...

    A new immigration tracking system went into effect Monday amid doubts that it would work as advertised and concerns that it might infringe on the rights of immigrants. The Homeland Security Department launched the first phase of the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US VISIT) program at 115 airports and cruise ship terminals at 14 seaports Monday. By law, visitors with nonimmigrant visas are now required to give biographic, travel and biometric information before entering the country. Biometric information consists of a digital photo and two fingerprint scans, which are entered into a database and compared to terrorist...

    The Department of Homeland Security unexpectedly terminated an immigration program targeting men from Middle Eastern countries this week, though department officials deny the program was cut in response to criticism from numerous civil rights and Muslim activist groups. The National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) was terminated, says the DHS, as a part of implementing a more comprehensive entry-exit monitoring system known as US-VISIT -- expected to be fully operational by 2005. Of the 177,000 Middle Eastern men registered under NSEERS, 20% were in violation of their visas, and at least 11 are suspected of terrorist connections. Of those not...

    THE BUSH administration is scrapping an inflexible and overly officious program it unleashed early in the war on terrorism. Men and boys who are visiting the United States from 25 mainly Arab and primarily Muslim countries no longer have to register annually with the Department of Homeland Security. At home, the special registration, which required mug shots, fingerprinting and demands for personal information, alienated and humiliated law-abiding visitors. Visitors who complied with the program were subject to arrest and deportation for relatively minor visa violations. There are horror stories of frightened Muslim males going into hiding or seeking asylum in...

    U.S. Ends Foreigner Registration Program By SUZANNE GAMBOA, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - The government is scrapping a rule imposed after the Sept. 11 attacks that required men and boys from countries with suspected links to terrorism to register multiple times with U.S. officials. The rule forced tens of thousands of Middle Easterners and others visiting America to provide personal information to government officials. Asa Hutchinson, the Homeland Security Department's undersecretary for border and transportation security, said a new registration system that will apply to more foreigners will be in place next month, making the current program unnecessary. The program...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Department of Homeland Security is ending a program begun after the Sept. 11 terror attacks that required tens of thousands of mostly Middle Eastern men and boys to register with the government, officials said Monday. Asa Hutchinson, the undersecretary for border and transportation security, said the department would focus more on individuals instead of "broad categories" of people. He said the program could be used again if there was another terrorist attack linked to a foreign country. Hutchinson said the decision to "terminate" the program, which administration officials had hinted at last week, was not influenced...

    The United States consul general in Jeddah recently said in this newspaper that now was the time to apply for a US visa for new or renewing Saudi students as it “may take a couple of months.” She made it look like a matter of simple routine, and as though Saudi students were welcome in the US and it was only a matter of time before they received their visa. She must be joking. What Saudi in his right mind would think about studying in the United States these days? The obstacles start with the application process. The wait is...

    United States Attorney-General John Ashcroft has recommended a widening of the USA Patriot Act, calling it a crucial tool in the global fight against terrorism. In an address before the House Judiciary Committee last week, Ashcroft espoused the expansion of the landmark Patriot Act legislation to include the death penalty and pre-trial detention provisions for suspected terrorists, as well as guarantees that those who aid terrorist cells as "material supporters" ultimately face charges. In his 90-minute rhetorically-packed address, Ashcroft noted that the Patriot Act has thus far brought "3,000 foot soldiers of terror" to justice via its beefed-up integration of...

    BY Judi Hasson April 29, 2003 Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced a new initiative today to build an electronic check in/check out system that will keep track of noncitizens as they enter and leave the United States. Ridge said the new program would replace the troubled Student and Exchange Visitor Information System and the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), which requires citizens of certain countries to be fingerprinted and registered with the federal government. Both systems hit snags during development and came under fire from civil liberties groups. The new system, U.S. Visitor and Immigration Status Indication Technology...

    <p>Is it worth having the federal government spend $16.8 million (President Bush's request for this year) to fund a federal border security program that has kept hundreds of criminals and terrorists from entering this country in the past four-and-a-half months? Given that the atrocities of September 11 were perpetrated by 19 foreigners who had little difficulty entering the United States and roaming the country at will, it makes sense to continue funding such a program as an insurance policy against future terrorist attacks.</p>

    You probably aren't aware that the Senate voted to stop funding a program requiring male immigrants from two dozen terrorist countries to register with the INS, because for some bizarre reason this important news has not been widely reported. Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., attached a little-noticed amendment, which decimated the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, to a huge spending bill that the Senate approved Thursday night.
