Under President Trump’s Signature: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to ban travel to North Korea

No one who reads this site would likely be traveling to North Korea anytime soon or in the next five years according to the wording of this new legislation.

In the interest of keeping one or two more of our liberal friends alive, who don’t believe laws apply to them we have posted this message.

 

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has decided to ban all travel by Americans to North Korea, due to “the serious risk of arrest and long-term detention” by the rogue regime.“Once in effect, U.S. passports will be invalid for travel to, through and in North Korea, and individuals will be required to obtain a passport with a special validation in order to travel to or within North Korea,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Friday.

 

 

The decision has long been contemplated by U.S. officials and got a new round of endorsements in light of the death of an American college student who was detained and abused while traveling in North Korea. The rule will take effect in the late August.

 

“Individuals seeking to travel to North Korea for certain limited humanitarian or other purposes may apply to the Department of State for a special validation passport,” Nauert said.

Tillerson told House lawmakers that he was “evaluating” a travel ban in June, one day after the evacuation of University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier from North Korea.

Warmbier, who had been detained and sentenced to hard labor for stealing propaganda poster, was in a coma at the time of his release and died shortly after returning to the United States.

There are three other Americans currently imprisoned in the country.

“[M]y concern, indeed, [is] that tourists got here simply supporting a dictatorial totalitarian regime,” Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., who co-sponsored legislation mandating a travel ban, told Tillerson at the June hearing.

Occasionally, the regime treats an American especially well.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has complimented dictator Kim Jong-un and visited repeatedly.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
