Obama bans U.S. entry for suspected human rights violators

President Barack Obama issued a proclamation Thursday barring entry into the United States of any individuals who have participated in war crimes or other serious human rights violations.

Under the terms of the order, which took effect immediately, the secretary of state is responsible for determining who will be kept out of the country. Exceptions can be made to accommodate U.S. foreign interests.

"Universal respect for human rights and humanitarian law and the prevention of atrocities internationally promotes U.S. values and fundamental U.S. interests in helping secure peace, deter aggression, promote the rule of law, combat crime and corruption, strengthen democracies, and prevent humanitarian crises around the globe," Obama said in the proclamation.

    It's juvenile, low class, and tiring.
    Do grow up.
