The Supreme Court on Monday partially restored Trump’s executive order — widely seen as a Muslim ban — and the administration set new criteria on Wednesday for visa applicants and refugees.
The new restrictions, which were sent to U.S. consulates and embassies Wednesday night, will go into effect at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
People from six Muslim-majority nations from entering the country. Those countries are: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
New guidelines stipulate that visa applicants from those six nations must be able to prove a “bona fide relationship” in the U.S. If an applicant cannot prove that relationship, then they will be barred from the U.S. for 90 days.
The only exception to this court-enforced travel ban applies to those who had already secured visas and will be allowed to into the U.S. “Those entering the U.S. for business purposes, students and journalists might also be allowed so long as that they have the proper documentation, a State Department official told Fox News.”
The revised travel ban, previously and erroneously referred to as a “Muslim ban” by liberals, cannot be challenged since it’s legally enforceable — effectively tying the hands of Muslim sympathizers who would stop at nothing to let the potential terrorists into America. It puts a 90-day travel ban on people coming from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. Although the prior order prevented travel from Iraq, this one does not, as well as it not longer gives Christians priority since that was something that Trump had to concede to in order to make this order unchallengeable.
Still in effect with this travel ban is Trump’s suspension of the entire refugee program for the next 120 days, preventing 50,000 refugees from entering anytime in the next four months, according to Jezebel. This will give authorities time to solidify the vetting process which is imperative to our safety. However, refugees accepted into the program prior to June 6 will be allowed to continue on with resettlement.
“Like every nation, the United States has a right to control who enters our country and to keep out those who would do us harm,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said, according to Fox News.
When Trump promised to make America great again, he meant it and no matter how hard they tried, liberals couldn’t stop that from happing in this particularly huge move. Banning would-be terrorists is long overdue and it’s really hard to argue a solid point as to how stronger vetting processes are a bad thing. This simply allows innocent people in that liberals speak of and weeds out those who potentially want to destroy America and citizens.
