Suspends refugees, immigration from seven countries

Signs Executive Order

Trump signs an executive order that suspends all refugee resettlement into the U.S for four months and refugee resettlement from Syria indefinitely. He also suspends for three months entry by citizens of seven majority-Muslim nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — on immigrant or non-immigrant visas, including apparently people holding dual citizenship with other nations. Trump says the suspensions are needed to protect the nation from potential terrorists he believes could sneak into the U.S. while he and his national security team determine how best to strengthen vetting procedures.

Signs executive order authorising border wall

Signs Executive Order

President Trump signs an executive order authorising the start of the construction of a border wall with Mexico and boosts border patrol forces and increases the number of immigration enforcement officers from 20,000 to 30,000. The orders also call for stripping sanctuary cities of federal grant funding and announces new criteria that could make many more illegal immigrants priorities for deportation. The executive orders do not cover the cost of the wall.

Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.
