This article was inspired by the denial of a family of Muslims from the UK being denied entry into the US to visit an aging relative and visit Disneyland. The BBC issued an article on Dec. 23, 2015 that David Cameron, prime minister of the UK has been requested to launch an official investigation as to why the family had been denied flight despite having been approved by the US Customs under the US Visa Waver program. The family did not receive an explanation of why they were stopped from flying. A US Customs and Border Protection spokesman was quoted in the BBC article.
The religion, faith, or spiritual beliefs of an international traveller are not determining factors about his or her admissibility into the US. In order to demonstrate that they are admissible, the applicant must overcome all grounds of inadmissibility. The spokesman also said there were 60 categories of inadmissibility, including health-related, prior criminal convictions, security reasons and immigration violations.
Under current screening guidelines by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Jesus of Nazareth would be considered as a dangerous person and put on the Terrorist Watch List and denied a visa for entry into the US. He would be put on the No Fly list. Jesus was an avowed insurgent against the Jewish religion and was tried for treason by the local ruling government and Roman occupation force.
Jesus’ appearance and association with other known terrorists would also put him on the DHS watch list. He is from the Middle East. He is probably mentally ill considering his statements that he is the only son of God, and he speaks directly to God. He organized a group of insurgents that had the objective of overthrowing the current government control by members of the Sanhedrin. He lived in an area known to be occupied by dissidents, malcontents, and resistance movements against occupying foreign governments, i.e. Romans.
If you see someone that looks like Jesus or any other suspicious people acting in a similar manner, you can report Jesus or that person directly to the DHS. If you are confused about what person you should report, the Terrorist Screening Center provides guidance using a FBI developed question and answer bulletin.
Maintain vigilance at the time of this major holiday season to support the DHS, TSA and FBI. If you see someone that looks like Jesus, report that person for possible interrogation, deportation, or imprisonment. We can’t be too careful in preventing acts of terrorism. Merry Christmas.
