Donald Trump signs order to ban refugees from entering the country

President Donald Trump has this evening signed two executive actions.

The first, which is aimed at ‘rebuilding’ the US armed forces, includes plans for new planes, new ships and new resources for the men and women in uniform.

The second… banning refugees from entering the country.

Trump signed the plans during a Pentagon swearing-in ceremony for Secretary of Defence, James Mattis.

He claims that the order is designed to ‘prohibit radical terrorists from entering the country’ – however, it will temporarily ban any refugee from entering the United States.

The order will stop all entries from some majority-Muslim nations, his spokesman said.

While signing the papers, he said: ‘This is big stuff’.

No new visas will be issued from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen for at least 30 days.

An indefinite ban will be implemented on Syrian refugees.

Refugees from the other six countries will be banned for 120 days.

Trump said: ‘We don’t want to admit the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those that support our country and love, deeply, our people.’

He did not reveal how he will carry out his proposal of ‘extreme vetting’ of incoming immigrants in the future.
