“Establish new screening procedures and enforce our immigration laws to keep terrorists out of the United States.”
Update: President Trump Signs An Executive Order, Establishing “Extreme Vetting”
Date: January 27th, 2017
“President Trump on Friday continued his crackdown on illegal immigration, signing sweeping new orders that tighten the country’s refugee and visa policies –suspending almost all refugee admissions for four months and indefinitely barring entry for some Syrians.
The order also creates an “extreme vetting” process for any and all immigrants and visitors to the U.S.”
“President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday that indefinitely suspends admissions for Syrian refugees and limits the flow of other refugees into the United States by instituting what the President has called “extreme vetting” of immigrants.
Titled “Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States,” the executive order would start to make good on Trump’s promise to tighten borders and halt certain refugees from entering the United States.”
“In an executive order that he said was part of an extreme vetting plan to keep out “radical Islamic terrorists,” Mr. Trump also established a religious test for refugees from Muslim nations: He ordered that Christians and others from minority religions be granted priority over Muslims.
“We don’t want them here,” Mr. Trump said of Islamist terrorists during a signing ceremony at the Pentagon. “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country, and love deeply our people.””
“The order, which has been widely anticipated, broadly follows the president’s campaign pledge to suspend immigration from several Muslim-majority countries until “extreme vetting” can be put in the place to prevent terrorists from entering the country.”
