...a South Carolina Congressman announced this week that he will introduce legislation which would require the deportation of all Iranians living in America.We'll see where this goes; obviously it's going nowhere in the House, but pay attention to how other pols and parties react to it.
The Stop Terrorists Entry Program Act (STEP) was first introduced by Rep. J. Gresham Barrett (R-SC) in 2003 [PDF link]. The updated version, he explained in a media advisory, would bar citizens of Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Yemen and Syria from entry into the United States. It would further require citizens of those nations who are legally visiting or residing in the United States to be deported within 60 days.
