Trump's executive order on border security has solid groundwork

President Trump's executive order temporarily barring some immigrants and refugees from entering the us led to mixed messages from government officials and stoked confusion among green card holders unsure if the policy applied to them. At dinner, when our conversation turned to the executive orders, she anxious that the president might deport us. "This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe", Trump said. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. He made it clear that the State Department will again be issuing visas to all countries once the Government reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.

Trump's executive order, signed Friday, temporarily restricts immigration and travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and bans the US from accepting refugees for 120 days.

It also denies entry for 90 days to people from seven majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.

The order, titled "Protection of the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States", involves what Trump calls the "extreme vetting" of refugees and reportedly includes a blacklist of terror-prone Middle East countries, whose nationals will be barred from USA entry for 30 days.

"This is a Muslim ban", Cox said. "I also hope, friends, that we stand here in solidarity with all the world's women who the president has insulted and all the desperate refugees that he would spurn".

The protests came as an online petition seeking cancellation of Trump's State Visit crossed the one million signature-mark to be considered for a debate in British Parliament.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a luncheon at the Congress of Tomorrow Republican Member Retreat January 26, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They blocked Terminal 4 after immigration authorities detained 11 refugees, who were likely already in transit when Trump ordered the ban. He also insisted his new administration was "totally prepared" to carry out the refugee and travel ban.




Like President Obama's executive actions on immigration, President Trump's executive order overreaches and undermines our constitutional system.

That would make it easier for Christians and other religious minorities in majority-Muslim countries to enter the United States than it would for Muslims in general.

When the US President signed his order, entitled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States, many affected travellers were caught by surprise. Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia are the countries impacted. "It was nearly impossible" for Syrian Christians to enter the USA, he said in the interview. The truth is that I am not at all confident that my USA passport will protect me. And it ignores the threat from citizens in the United States, Europe and other friendly locations who are radicalized at home.

What happened to travelers as the order took effect? .

May, who met with Trump in Washington a day earlier, told the news conference that the United States was responsible for its position on refugees.

The immediate fallout from Trump's order meant that an untold number of foreign-born US residents now traveling outside the USA could be stuck overseas for at least 90 days - despite holding permanent residency "green cards" or other visas.
