Immigration Law Article Readership Skyrockets Following Trump’s ABC Interview

1952 IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT GIVES PRESIDENT AND ATTORNEY GENERAL AUTHORITY TO REFUSE ENTRY TO CERTAIN GROUPS FOR NATIONAL SECURITY REASONS

(Nov. 15, 2016) — In apparent reaction to President-Elect Donald Trump’s first interview since last Tuesday’s election with Lesley Stahl of ABC News on Sunday in which he affirmed that he intends to “immediately deport or jail” millions of criminal illegal aliens after he takes office on January 20, 2017, The Post & Email has seen a sharp increase in readership, particularly of an editorial published December 8, 2015 by Kevin Cannon about the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

In his article, Cannon wrote that the Obama regime was “breaking the law,” referring to the 1952 INA, which he said “established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by ‘force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.’”

During the ABC interview, Trump called for a “stop” to the violent protests taking place across the country, particularly in Portland, OR, which have included the destruction of property and discharging of a firearm.  In other locations, alleged Trump supporters have been assaulted, and car windows were broken in New York City.

Reportedly, many of the protesters did not cast a vote on November 8.

Neither Obama nor defeated Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has commented on the destruction of property and injuries resulting from the demonstrations, although the mayor of Portland has “urged residents to become involved with organizations such the American Civil Liberties Union instead of protesting,” according to CNN.

Many of the protesters self-identify as illegal aliens or oppose Trump’s stated deportation policies while on the campaign trail of building a wall between Mexico and the U.S. and deporting criminal illegals and gang members.

Cannon’s article, to which he owns the copyright, has been widely disseminated on the web, including on Facebook, and has become one of The Post & Email’s most-popular articles, even prior to the election.

Cannon was president of the grassroots group We the People Alabama, which is apparently now defunct.

On Monday, more than half of The Post & Email’s readership accessed that article solely from points around the country and the globe, with the average number of daily unique readers more than doubling as a result.

A very similar pattern continues on Tuesday.
