Obama Administration To Lift Ban on Libyans Working in Aviation

DHS Internal Doc Reveals Plans to Lift Longstanding Libyan Ban – U.S. Rep Chaffetz (R-UT – 3rd Dist)

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) have obtained an internal Department of Homeland Security draft final regulation prepared by the Obama Administration that would lift the longstanding prohibition on Libyans to come to the U.S. to work in aviation maintenance, flight operations, or to seek study or training in nuclear science. This draft final regulation could go into place without prior notice and comment. The prohibition was put in place in the 1980s after the wave of terrorist incidents involving Libyans. The Administration justifies lifting this ban by claiming the United States’ relationship with Libya has been “normalized.” However, the terror threat continues and numerous news reports document recent terror-related stories coming from Libya. And just over a year ago the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was attacked, which resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Below are statements from Chairman Goodlatte and Congressman Chaffetz on this draft final regulation.
