President Obama issued a proclamation Thursday barring any foreigners from entering the country if they have participated in war crimes or serious violations of human rights, or if they’ve “attempted or conspired to do so.” The language explicitly states that this includes those who have persecuted people based on their “sexual orientation and gender identity.” (HT: The Washington Blade.)
