State Department Takes Up Vern Buchanan’s Idea to Screen Social Media Posts of Visa...

Buchanan first brought out the “Social Media Screening For Terrorists Act" back in 2015. The bill would have the executive branch to “vet all public records, including Facebook and other forms of social media, before admitting foreign travelers and visa applicants into the country” and the new State Department embraces many of Buchanan’s proposals though the Florida congressman wanted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to handle the screening.
