    National Security and Entry Bill 2016

    A
    BILL
    TO

    Prohibit entry into the United Kingdom of individuals who have recently travelled to high-risk areas to minimise the risk of terrorism

    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

    1) Definitions
    ‘Sovereign state’ under the context of this bill shall be defined as any UN member state or UN non-member permanent observer states.

    2) Prohibition of entry

    (1) Individuals who have been within the national territory of the following sovereign states or territories in the past ten years or carry a passport of one of the following sovereign states or territories are prohibited entry into the United Kingdom unless the conditions under section 2.3 are met: Mauritania, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Iran, Morocco (including Western Sahara), Tajikistan, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Maldives, Comoros, Niger, Nigeria, Algeria, Palestinian Territories, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Sudan, Libya, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Egypt, Jordan, Turkmenistan, Syria, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Bangladesh.

    (2) Individuals who have been within the territorial boundaries of the following sub-national regions in the past five years are prohibited entry into the United Kingdom unless the conditions under section 2.3 are met: Republic of Chechnya, Russian Federation; Republic of Dagestan, Russian Federation; Republic of Ingushetia, Russian Federation; Jammu and Kashmir, India; Aceh Darussalam, Indonesia; Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Philippines; Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, People’s Republic of China.

    (3) The restrictions from the places listed above do not apply to approved diplomats of the above sovereign states, approved government officials from any sovereign state recognised by the United Kingdom, and individuals who carry an official ‘special entry permit’ provided by an embassy or consulate of the United Kingdom, or UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).

    (4) The Home Office shall be responsible for performing background checks on those who wish to be granted a ‘special entry permit’ to ensure that they are not suspected terrorists, and may only approve the granting of the ‘special entry permit’ if after performing the background check, there is no indication that the seeker of the ‘special entry permit’ is a terrorist or there is no indication that he has been radicalised to commit terrorist acts.

    (5) UK Visas and Immigration shall be responsible for issuing ‘special entry permits’.

    (6) Each ‘special entry permit’ shall only be issued with an administrative fee of £1000 if the applicant is not a British citizen, which must be paid for before it is granted. British citizens may apply for a ‘special entry permit’ free of charge.

    (7) ‘Special entry permits’ may only be issued if the issuer of the permit receives approval from the Home Office for granting a ‘special entry permit’ to the approved individual.

    (8) Immigration officers are responsible for thoroughly checking the passports of all entrants to see if they have been within the national territory of the sovereign states or territories listed in section 2.1 in the past ten years and are responsible for verifying ‘special entry permits’ before granting entry into the United Kingdom.

    (9) Immigration into the United Kingdom from the sovereign states or territories listed in section 2.1 is temporarily suspended, unless the applicant registers for an additional and more in depth background check with the Home Office and pays an administrative fee of £10,000,000.

    (10) British citizens who have not returned to the United Kingdom after this Act comes into effect may enter the United Kingdom within one year since this Act comes into effect without a ‘special entry permit’.

    3) Short title, commencement and extent

    (1) This Act may be cited as the National Security and Entry Act 2016.
    (2) This Act comes into effect 120 days after Royal Assent.
    (3) This Act extends to the entirety of the United Kingdom.

    Notes

    The United Kingdom faces one of its greatest dangers in history - terrorism. If we look at the recent major terrorist attacks, they are the result of Islamism. There have been many terrorist attacks from Islamists on western civilisation in recent times, and there will be more to come unless we take a tough stance and tackle the issue.
    What many of those who carry out the attacks have in common is that they have been to certain high-risk areas (where there are significant terrorist groups) where they are radicalised. Some of the Paris attackers in November 2015 came from Syria. The 2016 Nice attacker was from Tunisia. The attackers in the 2016 Brussels bombings are believed to have fought in for Islamists in Syria. The perpetrators of the Boston marathon bombing of 2013 were radicalised in Dagestan. The perpetrators of the San Bernardino attack in 2015 have been to Saudi Arabia and one was from Pakistan. The 2016 train attack in Germany was committed by someone from Afghanistan. Even in the United Kingdom, one of the perpetrators has travelled to Pakistan.

    Since all of these terrorist attacks have these things in common, we have to do something about it if we want to stop these attacks from occurring here. We need to call for tougher controls on entry into the United Kingdom until we can figure out what is going on. We have no choice; we have to figure it out. It is going to get worse and worse. Remember, it is common sense so we need to do it. If we do not tackle these problems, there will be more 7/7s. We could be politically correct and we could be stupid, but it is going to get worse and worse. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem, and the dangers that it poses, our country cannot be the victim of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad. These are people who only believe in Jihad. They do not want our system and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. They have no respect for human life. So we have to do something. Now, we can be weak, we can be ineffective, we can be foolish, and get more deaths from terrorist attacks. But these attacks can stop. All you need to do is implement tough entry requirements from high-risk areas. I therefore urge MPs to vote in favour of this bill to ensure a safe and secure United Kingdom for you and for future generations.

    This Bill is likely to cause radicalisation, not prevent it. Protecting our national security is a priority in these uncertain times, but this Bill is a dreadful way to go about this. For obvious reasons, it's a No from me.

    Those who vote against this bill are asking for terrorism to occur in the United Kingdom. I hope MPs will be decent enough to save innocent lives by minimising the risk of terrorism, which can be done by supporting this bill.

    This bill does not cause radicalisation. Instead, it prevents radicalised people from entering the country. This bill is an excellent way to protect our national security.

    I honestly can't believe you lot are voting no, considering there was another attack in Brussels a few days ago. Those who are voting no are just asking for an attack in the UK.

    And this Bill causes death to a much greater extent than the terrorist attacks. The people who vote aye are effectively voting to kill.
