Trump Admin to Put Up National Vetting Center for Immigrants, Visitors

The White House has announced on Tuesday that President Donald Trump will establish a “National Vetting Center” to improve the vetting process of people arriving in the country.

The national security memorandum Trump is set to sign will give the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other government agencies a six-month deadline to establish the center.

The center will target to improve how different federal agencies share information about vetting, as well as streamline the process.

The new center will be run through the collaborative efforts of DHS, the Justice Department, the State Department, and other intelligence agencies.

There would also be a provision to establish a panel within the next six months that will provide oversight on privacy and civil liberties issues for the center. A board of governors, which will include Cabinet members, is also expected to oversee the panel.

According to an official who spoke with media, Trump’s directive will not call for any new funding.

The center is consistent with Trump’s campaign promise and repeated calls for an “extreme vetting” of those entering the U.S. for the protection of Americans. The Supreme Court has agreed to review his administration’s travel ban.

His vetting has gone completely out of control. He started out by vetting little kids in their dressing rooms. Now this :(

Anonymous No. 17610 Is totally off base here and the calling a Sitting POTUS a child molester is outrageous and shows just how far down the leftists have gone.

I totally agree with No. 17610, I hope karma lingers over those who spread lies that have an obvious impact on Americans and their families. It is wrong and should have consequences!

I wonder how many immigrants answer, "I'm here to kill Americans."
