It is not yet clear whether the signed text is the same, or how it differs, but a published draft of the executive order “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals” stated:
In order to protect Americans, we must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward our country and its founding principles. We cannot, and should not, admit into our country those who do not support the U.S. Constitution, or those who would place violent religious edicts over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry and hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice other religions) or those who would oppress members of one race, one gender, or sexual orientation.
Will officials try to vet for Sharia supremacism and support for honor killings, dhimmitude, and Sharia oppression of women? It will be interesting to see how that will be done.
“Trump Signs Two Executive Orders; Expands Power of Military, ‘Extreme Vetting,’” by Phil McCausland and Courtney Kube, NBC News, January 27, 2017:
President Donald Trump signed two executive orders on Friday that dramatically expand the nation’s military and so-called “extreme vetting” of visa seekers from terror-plagued countries — moves aimed at strengthening the U.S. response to terrorism both home and abroad.
In signing the order, Trump pledged to “keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America.”
Extreme vetting is an idea that evolved from Trump’s controversial Muslim ban that he called for in Dec. 2015, which would address the refugees entering the country.
“We’ve taken in tens of thousands of people. We know nothing about them,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday. “They can say they vet them. They didn’t vet them. They have no papers. How can you vet somebody when you don’t know anything about them and you have no papers?”
Though the United States government already utilizes a thorough nine-step vetting system for refugees, the president’s executive order is said to go further. It is unclear what these steps would mean and if it would target any particular religious group as the president stated on the campaign trail….
