The President will start building Mexico border wall TOMORROW – and is set to BAN people from Syria and six other ‘dangerous’ Muslim countries from entering America with executive actions.
- President Trump’s executive orders are expected to temporarily close US borders to most refugees
- Trump also set to sign executive order pertaining to his campaign pledge to build a wall along the American border with Mexico
- One order reportedly will block visas from being issued to citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen
- Restrictions likely to include months-long ban on admissions from all countries until government agencies can boost intensity of vetting process
- During presidential campaign, Trump promised to issue temporary ban on Muslims entering the US
President Donald Trump will begin rolling out executive actions on immigration Wednesday, beginning with steps to tighten border security – including his proposed wall along the US-Mexico border.
The president is also expected to temporarily ban immigration from Muslim countries deemed a ‘threat to national security’ – namely Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, and Somalia.
Over the next few days, Trump is also expected to sign other domestic immigration enforcement measures that will include targeting sanctuary cities that decline to prosecute undocumented aliens.
The Donald is set to sign an executive order authorizing the wall on Wednesday, while the immigration bans are still being finalized and could come later in the week.
The president posted a tweet on Tuesday evening signaling that major announcements were in the offing.
‘Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow,’ Trump tweeted.
‘Among many other things, we will build the wall!’
The new Trump directives will also stop most refugees including those from Syria coming to America while vetting processes are reviewed.
The one exception is religious minorities fleeing persecution – which would apply to Christians fleeing Syria and other Muslim majority countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.
In total over the next few days, Trump is expected to:
- Direct federal funds toward the construction of a wall along the southern border
- Target so-called ‘sanctuary’ cities that decline to prosecute undocumented aliens
- Institute a four-month freeze on admission of all refugees
- Temporarily ban nationals from Muslim-majority countries that are ‘terror prone’
- Halt visas to people from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen
- Grant exceptions to Christians and other minorities fleeing Muslim persecution
