President Trump Expected to Order Temporary Ban on Muslim “Refugee” Entry into U.S.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders starting on Wednesday that include a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.

Trump, who tweeted on Tuesday night that a “big day” was planned on national security on Wednesday, is expected to order a multi-month ban on allowing refugees into the United States except for religious minorities escaping persecution, until more aggressive vetting is in place.

Another order will block visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.

In his tweet late on Tuesday, Trump said: “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”

The border security measures likely include directing the construction of a border wall with Mexico and other actions to reduce the number of illegal immigrants living inside the United States.

The sources have said the first of the orders will be signed on Wednesday. With Trump considering measures to tighten border security, he could turn his attention to the refugee issue later this week.

Stephen Legomsky, who was chief counsel at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Obama administration, said the president had the authority to limit refugee admissions and the issuance of visas to specific countries if the administration determined it was in the public’s interest.

“From a legal standpoint, it would be exactly within his legal rights,” said Legomsky, a professor at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis. “But from a policy standpoint, it would be terrible idea because there is such an urgent humanitarian need right now for refugees.”

The Republican president, who took office last Friday, was expected to sign the first of the orders at the Department of Homeland Security, whose responsibilities include immigration and border security.

On the campaign trail, Trump initially proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, which he said would protect Americans from jihadist attacks.

Both Trump and his nominee for attorney general, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, have since said they would focus the restrictions on countries whose migrants could pose a threat, rather than placing a ban on people who follow a specific religion.

Many Trump supporters decried former President Barack Obama’s decision to increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States over fears that those fleeing the country’s civil war would carry out attacks.

  2. A ban on third world refugees is a GREAT START, can’t wait to here the system media covering this, will make the polices of the Angela Merkels etc seem even more unacceptable to the European masses.

      • Was buying groceries last night. In the line I heard an accent of a gentleman beside me. I asked him if he was an Afrikaner. He looked surprised and said: “Yes.” I shook his hand and told him: “I know why you are here” (small town Canada). He seemed a bit worried, so I said: “It’s okay. Your family is safe now; there are people like me who know about the genocide of Whites down there. You did the right thing in coming here.” He was relieved; meanwhile some women in the line were beet red and fretting with their purses… I wonder if they understood, or if they just didn’t want to understand? White women have absolutely NO in-group, protectionist mentality…

      • I wonder if there’s any way to change the mindset of the typical white woman that you’re talking about. The women who read and comment here get it. Most don’t. It’s disturbing to me.

      • Yes there is. Sit down with a few drinks and ensure there is only one or two of them. Slowly make things out to them. Be sensible, use emotive language without getting Hitler-like—but just the straight goods. I have brought a few over this way; but even so, they never fully absorb and believe in it as women are mainstream by nature: it is their biology that makes them our greatest ally, and our greatest enemy…
