Leid Stories—Trump: Out of [Executive] Order—01.30.17
President Donald Trump flamed out his first week in office with controversial executive order that quickly fired up protests across the country over the weekend, mostly at airports and city centers, that are now into their third day.
On Friday, Trump signed an order barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries—Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya and Yemen—from entering the United States for at least the next 90 days. All refugees, especially from war-torn countries, will be denied U.S. entry for four months. Trump called the measures long overdue, and said his order was part of a fuller plan to develop “extreme vetting” procedures to qualify people coming from the targeted countries. This will shield the United States against potential acts of terrorism, Trump said.
