Barely a week after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the president of the United States, he is already making moves to make the United States better.
According to reports, the president is expected to approve some executive orders that include visa denial for citizens of Syria and six other middle eastern and African countries.
The above tweet by the American president is believed to give credence to report on visa application denial and subsequent security measures in the United States:
Here is a list of the countries that may never be allowed to visit the United States under Donald Trump’s reign as the 45th American leader:
An undisclosed congressional aide and immigration expert revealed this and also backed it up by saying this move is in connection with the tweet.
According to Reuters, Stephen Legomsky, the chief counsel at US citizenship and immigration services in the last administration, informed that Trump has the legal power to limit refugee admissions and the issuance of visas to specific countries if the administration determined it was in the public’s interest.
The professor at Washington University School of Law in St Louis, said:
From a legal standpoint, it would be exactly within his legal rights.
But from a policy standpoint, it would be terrible idea because there is such an urgent humanitarian need right now for refugees.
The American president is expected to sign the first of the orders at the Department of Homeland Security, where immigration and border security-related issues are also being handled.
There was serious uproar during Trump’s campaign when he proposed a temporary ban on Muslims migrating to the United States which he believed would protect the citizens from jihadist attacks.
But rather than place a ban on those of a specific religion, Trump and his nominee for attorney general, Senator Jeff Sessions, have agreed to focus on restrictions instead, with special reference to countries whose migrants could pose a threat.
