The Trump administration made huge changes into the immigration policy last week, by signing executive order for travel ban. This executive order signed on Friday, Trump said that is designed to protect the United States “from foreign terrorist entry.”
The order stopped all refugee admissions for 120 days, until the new administration officials determine how to ensure that any refugee coming into the United States do not pose a threat.
However, the Trump administration today announced that is allowing 872 refugees to enter the United states this week that have been properly vetted.
These 872 refugees that are about to be admitted this week, under the waivers, were screened using Obama administration procedures, which takes two years, and a couple of interviews including a background check.
A Homeland Security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the waivers, saying that the refugees were considered in transit and had already been cleared for resettlement before the ban took effect.
Reuters reported, the DHS said on Sunday night that green card holders would be allowed to board U.S.-bound flights, but would be subjected to additional scrutiny upon arrival.
The public guidance from DHS also said some people from the seven majority-Muslim countries could be allowed entry to the United States on a case-by-case basis.
What do you think about this? Is Trump doing the right decisions to make America safe again?
