State Dept. to Seek Social Media History for New Arrivals
In a move allegedly aimed at combating terrorists, the State Department could soon begin demanding that incoming visitors and immigrants turn over their social history for examination. This would include phones logs, emails, and likes on FB cat videos. It’s all part of the new vetting processes for visas and visitors.
State is also going to warn certain incomers that various practices of primitive savagery are impermissible in the US. California could sue at any moment. Short of banning further, detrimental immigration altogether, this seems a positive and civilized step. But only so long as it applies to outsiders. There is a fear that such measures could be applied to US citizens traveling into or out of the country. Time will tell.
