US President Signs Executive Order for ‘Extreme Vetting’ of Immigrants

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday that indefinitely suspends admissions for Syrian refugees and limits the flow of other refugees from several Muslim countries into the United States by instituting what the President has called "extreme vetting" of immigrants.

Titled “Protection of the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” the executive order would start to make good on Trump’s promise to tighten borders and halt certain refugees from entering the United States.

The order bars all persons from certain countries from entering the United States for 90 days and suspends the US Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days until it is reinstated “only for nationals of countries for whom” members of Trump’s Cabinet deem can be properly vetted.

The countries impacted are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia, according to a White House official quoted by CNN.
