Extreme vetting measures will keep USA safe from terrorists

"It is important that a special exception is made for the consideration of individuals who directly supported American personnel overseas", the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Trump on Monday. "We only want to admit those into our country who support our country and love deeply our people", as reported by the Hill.

A military official noted Saturday that the US military, which uses translators and fixers in Iraq and Syria, two of the countries on the banned list, would find it harder to recruit, since the Pentagon has long offered the promise of refuge in the United States.

The Executive Order will also drastically reduce Exodus' funding for services to refugees already in the U.S. Exodus welcomed 947 individuals previous year from: Afghanistan, Bhutan, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, China, Cuba, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Honduras, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, and Syria.

Before actually signing the order, Trump said, "this is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States".

Standing behind the presidential seal, Trump proclaimed, "we don't want 'em here", and assured that this measure was a means to protecting the livelihood and safety of the American people.

"The needs of refugees and migrants worldwide have never been greater and the USA resettlement program is one of the most important in the world", the two Geneva-based agencies said in a joint statement.

"We will honour them not only with our words, but with our actions, and that's what we're doing today", said Trump flanked with the new Defense Secretary Gen (retired) James Mattis and the Vice President Mike Pence.

Senator Donnelly also responded to the order, saying that shutting down the refugee program could have the opposite effect that Trump intends, providing "recruitment fodder" for ISIS.

The letter was led by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), who was one of the first lawmakers to endorse Trump, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), who remained critical of Trump throughout the campaign. "I think it's going to be very successful".

Drake said the agency was notified that the Syrian family was coming on January 13, and went ahead to secure for an apartment for them to rent in a duplex in Cleveland where another Syrian refuge family already lives. And the reason that was so unfair is that-everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody, but more so the Christians.

The United States now has 5,000 troops in Iraq and 500 in Syria as "advisers" - but also USA artillery and aircraft to help in the fight.

"Even I have been banned", Faily said Sunday in a phone interview from Baghdad. He also wants increase the number of Navy ships from 287 to 350, and add to the Air Force's fighter jet fleet by as many as 1,200 aircraft.
