President Trump has been busy busting out executive orders faster than Barack Obama did, to undo all the damage his predecessor did and get the country on track. His most recent item of urgent business is fulfilling his campaign promise of stopping the flow of Muslim refugees into the country who want to bring terrorism with them. However, he just made that plan even better with a new surprise he added to it that has Muslims insanely pissed off.
When it was Obama signing executive orders in the middle of the night or during big news events while people were distracted from his secret destruction, liberals praised him for his “leadership.” Now that Trump’s pen is taking action, the left is in complete meltdown, especially when it comes to their coveted Muslims from the Middle East who had hopes of coming here and infiltrating our country with Islam. Not only are they not get the free trip here and freebies on arrival, they are also learning that someone else is taking their place and it’s a perfect slap in the face.
NPR reports with frustration for the Trump administration that our new president isn’t against refugees as they once though, they just have to be of a certain variety. The point of the refugee program was said to give a better life to those suffering in these parts of the world and Trump is ensuring that’s the case by giving priority to Christians suffering from religious persecution.
“The actions include a 120-day moratorium on any new refugees entering the United States to give the government time to come up with a plan that prioritizes Christians suffering from religious persecution,” NPR reports of Trump’s new plan, which also bans Syrian refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Sudan.
Another action would indefinitely block new Syrian refugees from entering the United States. There will be a 30-day ban on immigration from seven countries with predominantly Muslim populations: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Sudan.
The Associated Press reports that Trump will order the Pentagon and State Department to come up with a plan to provide safe zones in Syria and the surrounding region for Syrians denied visas to enter the U.S.
The United States admitted 84,995 refugees in fiscal year 2016, 12,587 of them from Syria, according to the Pew Research Center.
President Obama had proposed allowing 110,000 refugees into the United States in 2017. But Trump plans to limit that number to 50,000, according to the New York Times.
A moratorium on admitting Syrian refugees is appropriate, say advocates for immigration limits.
“Taking a temporary pause in refugee admissions is a prudent and effective approach to ensuring that national security vetting is in place and working,” David Ray, communications director for the Washington, D.C.-based Federation for American Immigration Reform told the Los Angeles Times.
Obama had announced that he wanted to allow 110,000 refugees into America in 2017, but Trump axed that idea immediately, limiting the influx to just 50,000. This essentially cuts out all the would-be terrorists and ensures the program is people actually suffering real religious persecution, not those who are wanting to bring it here and turn America into the Middle East
