Donald Trump is Correct. Old ABC TV News Video Proves Most GOP, all Dem Presidential Candidates Ignore History and Constitution on Immigration
In a national broadcast explaining his Presidential Directive under the Constitution and federal laws, then liberal President Jimmy Carter in December 1979 issued orders to immediately respond to the hostage crisis, including many actions and specificially ordered orders that impacted 50,000 students and many thousands more attempting to visit the United States.
Direct quote from President Carter in a newly posted ABC news video from the Carter announcement in December 1979:
Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.
