Turkey and Pakistan are part of the Trade In Services Agreement and will get easier immigration rules. What could go wrong?
As I wrote yesterday, the Wikileaks documents show that the TISA alters immigration rules according to Breitbart’s report. They give the president more authority over immigration.
But I had missed some of the implications because I did not think about who was part of the agreements. The constant mention of the “Trans Pacific Partnership” kept me focused on countries on the Pacific Rim. But TISA includes countries that don’t touch the Pacific Ocean at all.
Thus, the Conservative Review reports, “ObamaTrade Relaxes Visa Process for Pakistan.”
One very disturbing aspect of TISA is the document uncovered by WikiLeaks revealing an entire section on immigration, referred to as “Movement of Natural Persons.” This section discusses commitments by the parties not to place undue burdens on visas and singles out face-to-face interviews as an example of “overly burdensome procedures.” [see the footnote on page 7] At a time when we face so many national security problems, why would conservatives trust this president to squelch any visa provision threatening our security?
