President Trump creates new National Vetting Center for US immigrant wannabes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2018

Reminder: Over the next few days I will be traveling, so don’t look for new posts here at RRW (after today) until early next week.

Thanks to reader Cathy for alerting me to this White House Press Release (here in its entirety):

President Trump Addresses The Nation In His First State Of The Union Address To Joint Session Of  Congress

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed a National Security Presidential Memorandum to establish a National Vetting Center (NVC) to coordinate the efforts of departments and agencies to better identify individuals seeking to enter the country who present a threat to national security, border security, homeland security, or public safety.

The NVC, which will be led by the Department of Homeland Security, will help fulfill the President’s requirement that departments and agencies improve their coordination and use of intelligence and other information in the vetting process.

The Federal Government’s current vetting efforts are ad hoc, which impedes our ability to keep up with today’s threats. The NVC will better coordinate these activities in a central location, enabling officials to further leverage critical intelligence and law enforcement information to identify terrorists, criminals, and other nefarious actors trying to enter and remain within our country. The NVC’s operations will adhere to America’s strong protections for individuals’ privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties. The Administration’s top priority is the safety and security of the public, and the NVC will empower our frontline defenders to better fulfill that obligation.

A good first step, but much more needs to be done!

Come on RCUSA, make my day and oppose coordination of vetting that could keep us safer!

  1. Now, all he needs to do is what Obama did to the good side of BATF (the one that approves tax stamps on restricted firearms) – systematically underfund it to stop people getting stuff. In this case, admission to the country.

      Yes, but as soon as he is gone they can simply restore it, so what needs to happen is permanent changes in law and that involves Congress.

    Dear Ann, Hope your travels are safe and rewarding. To point; does this new NVC program (bureau?) have any “teeth”? or is it a New Ellis Island (as it were)? Or is it just a new tax-sucking, toothless, mainly-ineffective-bureaucracy filled with “Peter Principle” under-achieving, porn-watching seat-warmers? President Reagan’s (I’m From the Government, and I’m Here to Help You” –Lolol) birthday anniversary– 107!! was yesterday. Surely do miss him.

    OH GOODIE!!!!! Instead of shrinking government, he wants to expand it by creating another agency to do what existing ones should be doing.

    Now we are talking!!!!! Department of Homeland Security. Exactly where it should be! None of that b.s. vetting like before that the other team laughingly called vetting.
