"limited material support" doesn't even mean they have to declare that they have changed their minds, as the Assadi anecdote suggests, and declaring that they have changed their minds doesn't mean they really have. Their are more people in the world who have never advocated, aided or committed terrorist acts against us who would love to immigrate here than we can possibly accommodate. Why should we accept any that have?

Next, they will claim that the U.S. government is violating their civil rights, and Obama will agree. Meanwhile, conservatives and Catholics here are having their inalienable rights to freedom of religion and assemble violated by this government.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has eased the rules for would-be asylum-seekers, refugees and others who hope to come to the United States or stay here and who gave "limited" support to terrorists or terrorist groups.

The change is one of President Barack Obama's first actions on immigration since he pledged during his State of the Union address last month to use more executive directives.

The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department now say that people considered to have provided "limited material support" to terrorists or terrorist groups are no longer automatically barred from the United States.
