'required oath'

Reader comment on item: Another Attempt at "Extreme Vetting"

Submitted by James Whitehead (United States), Apr 5, 2017 at 14:13

Good morning Daniel,

The one issue never discussed regarding entry to America is the historic and 'required oath' to Pledge Allegiance to The United States and all is stands for; assimilation, no ties to other nations, their forms of government, or their leaders.

Perhaps Daniel you have already dealt with this in your past posts and I missed it. But, maybe you could do an extensive article on the Oath and measure the failure to uphold it by our lame congress and recent past presidents . . . . .

Fair enough. I will add this to my article on how to "extreme vet."
