Frank Gaffney, president of the anti-Islam group Center for Security Policy, told The Conservative Review’s senior editor Daniel Horowitz that he believes the United States needs to use vetting systems for immigrants coming from majority-Muslim countries that are akin to those that were used to prevent entry of Nazis and communists.

Today on “Secure Freedom Radio,” Horowitz told Gaffney that the number of immigrants from majority-Muslim countries to the United States has risen over the past few decades and bemoaned the trend, asking Gaffney, “the culture that it breeds and certainly the terrorism that it breeds—why would you do that? Why?”

Horowitz went on to say that he believes people should question whether the United States should welcome immigration from majority-Muslim countries as the “fastest growing subset of our immigration.” Gaffney told Horowitz he made a “crucial point” and went on to recall an amicus brief his organization, alongside others, filed at the Supreme Court last year that supported Trump administration officials trying to defend the legality of Trump’s Muslim ban.

“Specifically we need to institute a measure akin to what we did with Nazism and communism in the past, namely to screen for Sharia supremacism. And if people have that as their operating code, shall we say, we’ve actually got enough of those folks in this country as it is. We don’t really need or want any more. So, thank you, but no thank you,” Gaffney said.
