President Trump to the rescue.
His latest executive order ensures strict vetting policies for people from the Middle East who seek refuge in America.
In other words, the days of terrorists entering the country are over.
President Donald Trump Friday signed executive actions that instituted new vetting procedures “to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America.”
“We don’t want them here,” Trump said in the Hall of Heroes at the Pentagon before signing the orders. “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas.
“We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people.
“We will never forget the lessons of 9/11 nor the heroes who lost their lives at the Pentagon,” Trump said. “They were the best of us.
“We will honor them not only with our words, but with our actions — and that’s what we’re doing today,” Trump said.
Trump also met with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and attended a ceremonial swearing-in for Defense Secretary James Mattis by Vice President Mike Pence.
Mattis was officially sworn-in on Monday after he was confirmed by the Senate.
With Friday’s actions, Trump has signed six executive orders since his inauguration last Friday.
The others took such steps as beginning the process to repeal Obamacare through budgetary efforts, building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and cutting federal funds to sanctuary cities that refuse to work with the government for immigration control.
He also has signed eight presidential memoranda, which carry less legal weight than the executive actions.
Those, for instance, pulled the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership; instituted a federal hiring freeze; barred federal funds from non-governmental international groups that perform abortions; and authorized the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.
Thank you, Donald!
