A leaked copy of the draft order indicates that Trump will halt all refugee resettlement to the United States for the next four months, while indefinitely banning the resettlement of Syrians. The proposal will also halt immigration entirely for 30 days from a list of Muslim-majority countries.
“Under Trump’s direction, the Department of Homeland Security and State Department will likely work together to create a list of countries from which visitors should be banned,” says Matthew La Corte an immigration policy analyst at Niskanen Center, a public policy think tank. “We also expect this list to grow over time and be larger than the initial list of countries that has been reported in the media.”
The text of the executive order indicates that visas would be blocked for individuals visiting the United States from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, all countries with Muslim-majority populations. Trump made a campaign promise to ban Muslims from entering the United States, and the draft text of the executive order calls for the U.S. to ban “those who would place violent religious edicts over American law.”
What’s interesting and sinister is that the banned countries in the document now are all the countries on the original list of ME counties the US would deliberately destabilize
Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen

I'm under the impression it's only until they can properly vet people who may wish to do harm. This was supposed to be our intelligence communities job, along with dhs. Seeing as how they haven't been able to do their job, I'm fine with it. Afformentioned agencies should be completely gutted and restaffed as well.

I understand Syrian refugees, which includes even christians. Why the visa bans for other muslim countries doesn't include Saudi/UAE ?
Out of the 19 hijackers, 15 were from Saudi, 2 from UAE.
Trump wants to protect Saudi.
Trump have golf course in UAE.

Your thread should be canned for intentional title misrepresentation. This isn't CNN.
It's a ban on migrants and refugees from dangerous and unstable nations which harbor and back Islamic terrorism, and it's temporary.
Your title suggests a blanket ban on Muslims which obviously is you peddling lies. There's numerous Muslim countries not on the list.
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
