Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State, is now implementing a new law to keep Americans all over the country safer in an attempt to prevent terror attacks all over the United States. Tillerson ordered U.S. embassies around the world to screen social media of anyone applying for a visa if they spent any time in territories that were controlled by the Islamic State (aka ISIS).
The United States consular office rarely screens social media when it is considering visas, mostly because it makes the processing time very lengthy in the Middle Eastern Embassies, but when it comes to safety, it is worth it. Tillerson also wants the embassies to develop a list of criteria that they look for when scrutinizing social media in order to keep attacks like the San Bernardino Terror Attack from happening again.
From Young Conservatives:
Rex Tillerson has made it clear that he isn’t going to play around when it comes to ISIS. That’s one of the most important differences between the Trump and Obama administrations. Obama sat around and joked about ISIS for years while they grew and expanded. Tillerson isn’t that kind of guy.
Check out the solid move Tillerson just made to prevent terror attacks in the United States. Great news. A measure like this arguably would have stopped the San Bernardino terror attack from happening. Anything that can be done to make vetting tougher is a good idea.
