I always find selective enforcement of laws interesting. In the recent case of refusing entry to the US by Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) on the grounds below, I have to say that strict application of the law would prove very sticky for US foreign policy. But I forget: states in power would never use terrorism. Right? AlterNet: Rights and Liberties: Demonizing Moderate Muslims
"A provision in the USA Patriot Act states that anyone who uses his position of prominence to endorse terrorism or terrorist organizations may not enter the United States. This was what a DHS spokesman was referring to when he said that Islam was denied admission to the United States 'on national security grounds.'"
