If you thought Donald Trump was only pondering to his bigoted supporters but would not follow through on all the divisiveness he spewed on the campaign trail, think again.
U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign several executive orders on Wednesday restricting immigration from Syria and six other Middle Eastern or African countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter. In addition to Syria, Trump’s orders are expected to temporarily restrict access to the United States for most refugees. Another order will block visas from being issued to Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified. Trump’s restrictions on refugees are likely to include a multi-month ban on admissions from all countries until the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security can increase the intensity of the vetting process.
They are calling the ban temporary but there are no measures in place that can tell when the vetting process is up to par. So in actuality, the ban could last for the entire Trump’s presidency.
It is inconceivable that the United could ever be an isolated nation like North Korea but it seems like that is where Donald Trump is taking the country.
