DHS will continue to enforce Trump's travel ban

Executive Order On Refugees Only A Beginning

A court order has temporarily barred the USA from deporting certain people.Trump is temporarily barring refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. The New York Times, citing "two American officials", reports that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly "had suggested green card holders be exempted from the order", but presidential advisers Stephen Bannon and Stephen Miller "overruled him". And I would suspect as long as they're not terrible people that they will move through before another half a day today.

The order barred United States border agents from removing anyone who arrived in the U.S. with a valid visa from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen and also covered anyone with an approved refugee application.

Homeland Security officials had said Saturday that the order would affect green card holders and other with legal visas for the United States, saying those people would require case-by-case waivers to gain entry.

The move sparked protests at airports across the USA and led several travelers to immediately bring lawsuits against the federal government.

Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to the White House, said, "Nothing in the Brooklyn judge's order in anyway impedes or prevents the implementation of the president's executive order which remains in full, complete and total effect".

"For now, Pakistan is not among the countries facing a travel ban". The organisation said it would challenge the constitutionality of Mr Trump's order.

"Perhaps other countries needed to be added to an executive order going forward", he said.




Politicians in the USA and around the world also criticised the move. "We need to do our best to be vigilant and protect Americans".

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter that refugees were welcome in Canada "regardless of your faith". "These individuals went through enhanced security screenings and are being processed for entry to the United States, consistent with our immigration laws and judicial orders".

Those already in the United States with a visa or green card would be allowed to stay, according to the homeland security official.

"It simply shows Mr Trump cruel policies for Muslims".

During an interview on "Meet The Press", the NBC anchor asked Reince Priebus to clarify many parts of the executive order, which left airports in chaos Saturday as travelers from seven countries singled out in the measure were detained or put on return flights by border and customs agents.

With signals from Washington suggesting that the recent travel ban imposed on seven Muslim countries might be extended to other countries, including Pakistan, experts believe such a move may be counterproductive and may backfire soon. "Our people should not unnecessarily apply for visas too", he said.

The Trump administration has been treating Pakistan with care because it is a nuclear-armed nation that can impact the future of Afghanistan and the war on terrorism.
