President Donald Trump has signed a new executive order that blocks the arrival of most travelers from six conflict-prone countries for 90 days and freezing the inflow of refugees from any country for the next 120 days.
According to documents who were released today by the White House, the new order shifts the task of stopping the refugees from officers at U.S. airports over to officials at U.S. embassies overseas, who have been told to stop preparing needed travel documents until Trump’s aides complete a national security review. This new order takes effect on March 16 and like the first version, it won’t effect green holders.
The shift to overseas embassies may prevent judges from trying to block the new order, just as three California judges on Feb. 3 blocked part of Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order on refugees.
White House said that the order blocks document processing for would-be refugees from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.
The major difference between this one and the last is that Iraq is exempt from the list of targeted countries. That’s because Iraqi officials promised to upgrade their security checks.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “the executive order signed by the president earlier today protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United State is a valid measure for straightening our national security.”
“It is the presidency solemn duty to protect American people and with this order, president Trump is exercising his rightful authority to keep our people safe.”
Rex Tillerson confirms that the order has been revised in order to “eliminate vulnerabilities that Islamist terrorist exploit for destructive ends.”
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said the new ban would “make America more secure and address long-overdue concerns about the security of our immigration system.”
America finally has a man of word, who keeps his promises to make America safe again! Thank you, President Trump, for protecting our families and country. Continue the superb work and show the world who’s the great President of this United States of America.
God bless America and President Trump.
