Trump To Sign Executive Orders Restricting Immigration, Order Mexican Border Wall

Tyler Durden's picture

Having taken on the Keystone pipeline and America's struggling manufacturing sector in a flurry of executive actions on Tuesday, moments ago Reuters reported, citing several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter, that on Wednesday Donald Trump will sign several executive orders restricting immigration. The president is expected to sign the orders at the Washington headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security, whose responsibilities include immigration and border security.

Trump's orders are said to involve restricting access to the United States for refugees and some visa holders from seven mostly Muslim nations including Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Trump's restrictions on refugees are likely to include a multi-month ban on admissions from all countries until the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security can increase the intensity of the vetting process.

Additionally, as AP first reported and the NYT confirmed, among the executive orders will be Trump's announcement for plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, something Trump himself hinted at in an evening tweet.

... an announcement which has sent the Mexican peso sliding in late trading.

During his presidential campaign, Trump initially proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States to protect Americans from jihadist attacks. Many Trump supporters decried Democratic President Barack Obama's decision to increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States over fears that those fleeing the country's civil war would carry out attacks. However, since then both Trump and his nominee for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, have said they would focus the restrictions on countries whose emigres could pose a threat rather than placing a ban on people who follow a specific religion.

As Reuters adds, to block entry from the designated countries, Trump is likely to instruct the U.S. State Department to stop issuing visas to people from those nations, according to sources familiar with the visa process. He could also instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to stop any current visa holders from those countries from entering the United States. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday that the State and Homeland Security departments would work on the vetting process once Trump's nominee to head the State Department, Rex Tillerson, is installed.

Other measures may include directing all agencies to finish work on a biometric identification system for non-citizens entering and exiting the United States and a crackdown on immigrants fraudulently receiving government benefits, according to the congressional aides and immigration experts.

So to recap: in addition to restricting immigration from seven countries, the Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo will be meeting with US officials in Washington on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss the future of Nafta, as reported earlier, while roughly at the same time Trump will announce his plans to start building a wall, which Mexico has said is a "red line" to any potential deal.

The entertainment value of Trump's Day 3 may be the highest yet.

I think that more Americans have supposedly been killed by Saudi terrorists than all those other countries combined.

No shit. No ban on them makes this a half assed 'ban'. I'd wager someone has explained to him how the whole pertodollars thing works, and he doesn't want to upset the Saudis.

ban any Palestinians too...they don't need to come here.  They're nagger rich now, thanks once again to the Traitor-an-Cheat:

Revealed: Obama defied Congress to hand $220 MILLION to Palestinians in dying hours of his time in office - and gave millions for climate change too


Trump should claw all the money back and then put out an arrest warrant for O-Traitor and everyone else in his state department who colluded w/ him to steal from America and cause wars all over the world.

Am I the only one who sees the link between those banned countries and the US's ME tour itinerary over the past 25 years (and longer in some cases) I.e. countries that have been the unwilling recipients of CIA / MIC induced hot wars, regime change and aggressive sanctions? 

I wonder if they would like to be able to decree that the American military immigrants were not permitted in their homelands to sow chaos and mayhem? 

Don't get me wrong... Trump is doing the only sensible thingbut cause and effect.

you're late on this one, Dame Possum, PT declared a moratorium on this crap in his inaugural address. but the residual effects will linger. meanwhile, they AIN'T getting into this country to raise hell. Mattis going to take it to 'em over there. the legit immigrants will pass thru the system but Obomber's rubber stamp has been destroyed.

I would like to see Trumps Beach team  address the problem of Illegal Aliens Marrying US Citizens and then Changing their mind a few months later and Running away when the paperwork arrives from La Migra Immigration office.

Millions of Americans have been Suckered into that trap, Women and Men.

Trump is talking about Violent Criminals being sent back to Desperado land, what is more violent than callously cutting a heart in two ?

Mostly, it is lonely old guys who met a chick in Asia or online, Russians and Ukrainians and all that . A Marriage is a contract and I have met a few people who have been burned.

Actually, let me fix that for me, only a fool would enter into marriage in the US in 2017.

well it is getting harder to say yes to those promises.

but looking over those countries whose inhabitants we don't want to allow enter our country, i wonder if they felt the same way some time ago.  

maybe we should add ukraine and nicaragua and call it a done deal.

Ban Israelis!





jeff montanye's picture

you bring up a good point.  i believe it has been noted before on this forum that the events of 9-11-01, orchestrated by the likud party and the mossad, with israeli assets in the u.s. such as bush, cheney and rumsfeld, were done to lead to wars in seven countries in five years.

these are those countries, exchanging yemen for lebanon.

oh and they never did get to attack iran.  best laid plans and all.

and the average merican scratches around for $10-15 and hour doing some half as work. these fuks throw around millions like you and i see 100's. fuking insane. money needs a new perspective- scarse would be a start.

if i was trump. i would enact a tax receiptbased balanced budget smoothed out by averaging. law of the land only increasable by referendum...

break the us into budgeting zones, kinda like the time zones. let funding from federal reciepts match expenses by zones.

i sure don't want my money going to kali...

and on another note, this is gonna put kali on the war path to leave the us. watch for a referendum. i promise...

if only france and kali weren't so far apart, they could get married and adopt childern...

Add Sweden to the list, especially government officials they want to shoot you or set you up for rape charges.

Now that I think of it Denmark may have meddled in our elections, remember the blonde Danish PM fooling around with Barry at that memorial of "whats his name" in S. Africa. He also lobbied for for Denmark to score the Olympics.

Barack Obama a socialist Danish agent.

Not quite what it says/does. It bans use of lead ammo on Federal lands for hunting, etc.

Either way it's a slimy, fucktard, douchebag way of pushing something through. Just like Oblowhole did his whole regime.

azusgm's picture

Much of that can be fixed by deeding most of those federal lands to the respective states. The states can decide the best use of the newly-acquired real estate. As strapped as most of the states and local jurisdictions are, the states would probably want to auction off the property to help prop up the taxable base.

We don't need so much land under federal control in a country that is (nominally) not socialist.

The Joker's picture

You couldn't be more off-base with your appraisal of the situation.  You've obviously never hunted or fished before.  We don't want states or private entities taking control of public lands.  They will fence and post them.  Yes we need much land under federal control because those land are open to the public.  Socialism has nothing to do with it. 

azusgm's picture

The federal government owns almost 1/3 of all the land in the United States. The .gov needs to slim down.

i vote the other way.  more wilderness.  fewer malls.  

we are going to max out on human population in no more than thirty five years, maybe sooner considering that the global deflationary depression with monetary hyperinflation is about to get famous.

better to have something to show for it than more cities in china or second homes in the u.s.a.

TheMeatTrapper's picture

Here in Alabama we are busy buying wilderness and unspoiled land in our Forever Wld program. It's a private trust. No Feds involved and they don't have shit to say about it. Not even the State has any say in it. 

We recently lost a State run Wildlife Management area because the Feds said a rare snake was living in it. The private landowners who had been leasing the land to the State for public hunting realized that the Feds were about to take control of their private property so they cancelled the States hunting lease. 

The citizens lost thousands of acres of public access hunting land because of the fucking Feds. Fuck the Feds. It is possible to have publicly accessible lands without bowing down and kissing Big Brothers ass.
