Unknown to most Americans, America can slam the door on leaving at any time. All of the restrictions needed to literally close the doors on the departure of both money and people have been passed into law, primarily under the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011. These restrictions are not yet implemented. They’re intended to be implemented automatically, should a president declare a specific national state of emergency for any reason.
