The Aritcle, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, discusses one of President Trump’s most recent signed executive orders. On Friday, January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order that would provide help to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This order was to enforce our immigration laws and suspend entry into the United States by “certain classes of foreign nationals,” the article says. This executive order is designed to protect the American people. The DHS says that they will work together with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), to implement this order while at the same time protecting the rights of all citizens given to them by the constitution. The DHS says that they will enforce Trump’s Executive Order “humanly and with professionalism.”
In the Executive Order, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Entry into the United States,” President Trump declares that he is temporarily banning travel from seven Muslim- majority countries. Trump believes that by doing this he is protecting the citizens of the U.S. from terrorism. Trump goes on to proclaim that he will be suspending the entry into the U.S. of immigrants and non-immigrants for 90 days, starting on the date of the Executive Order (January 27, 2017). The order goes on to announce that the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) will be suspended for 120 days. During this time period, the Secretary of State (Rex Tillerson,) the Secretary of Homeland Security (John Kelly,) and the Director of National Intelligence will review the USRAP and determine what additional actions should be taken in the program.
