Executive Order Excluding Refugees and Nationals from Seven Muslim Countries

On the eve of the International Day of Remembrance for Victims of the Holocaust, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning refugees and nationals from seven Muslim countries where he does not own hotels or other businesses. Demonstrations erupted at airports across the United States to protest the order. Here is a link to the text of that order.

The exclusion order does nothing to increase the safety of the United States. It instead will become a recruiting tool for ISIL and endanger the safety of U.S. citizens abroad. Trump's proposal to impose "extreme vetting" was not itself vetted.
