“It is not compassion but just reckless to allow uncontrolled immigration of those without proper vetting”- President Trump.
It’s so refreshing change from what this country had to endure for the last 8 years, to have a President that will honor one of his campaign promises! This is something the DEMOCRATS NEVER DO and the Establishment Republicans forgot how to do.
President Donald Trump announced that he will release a new executive order on immigration Monday morning. And he did. The new order comes after the first one—temporarily suspending the refugee program and barring travel into the United States from seven terror-prone countries—was met with backlash in the court system, with a district court and the ninth circuit court of appeals shutting it down.
This new order is slightly different from the first one and moves Iraq—one of the seven countries from the first order—to a different category. It’s not entirely clear what the new category is or how Iraq will be handled in this new order at this time. It’s also unclear what other changes may be made from the first order, including in particular how the new one will handle the refugee program.
When Trump rolled out his first order, he was met with weekend protests in airports nationwide by progressive activists and members of the Muslim community in his first full weekend as president. Then acting Attorney General Sally Yates refused to enforce the order, and President Trump swiftly fired her for failing to serve the Department of Justice honorably by enforcing the law as she previously had agree to do when she accepted the position.
Since then, now-former Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama has been confirmed as the new Attorney General and sources tell Breitbart News that he and other cabinet members including Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly—a former Marine Corps general who led U.S. Southern Command before his nomination and confirmation—have been consulted on this executive order.
At a White House press briefing back on Feb. 23, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the new order was “finalized” and the administration was working to implement it.
“What we are doing is now in the implementation phase of working with the respective departments and agencies to make sure that when we execute this, it’s done in a manner that’s flawless,” Spicer said.
While Spicer also made clear that the administration believes the first order was lawful, done in compliance with U.S. code and authority granted to the president, and that it will succeed eventually in the legal process in overturning the ninth circuit ruling, he said that the new order does take into account the appeals court’s decision. Spicer said:
We’ve taken the Court’s opinions and concerns into consideration, but the order is finalized. It’s now awaiting implementation. What we want to do is make sure that we’re working through the departments and agencies so that any concerns or questions are handled on the front end. But we are acting with appropriate haste and diligence to make sure that the order is done in an appropriate manner.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly took the stage next. Importantly, he noted this revised travel and refugee ban does NOT affect those with visas or green cards. A major problem with the original executive order is that it inconvenienced thousands of residents with visas or green cards who came from the list of banned countries.
There are a number of other major differences between the original and revised executive orders.
It was originally thought that President Trump would sign the new order on Wednesday this past week, but reports surfaced that he called it off amid the positive reception he received after his highly successful address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.
It’s a good feeling knowing that a devoted intelligent person is running our country!!!! Thank you Mr.President for making the promise “Keep America Safe Again” reality. The majority of Americans are behind you and understand the importance of this move to protect the future of America.
GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!
