(Worthy News) - President Trump imposed new restrictions on refugees from 11 'high risk' target countries Tuesday, reportedly all but one being mostly Muslim, saying they pose too much of a danger to be admitted without a compelling national interest.
In his executive order, Mr. Trump announced he was restarting general refugee processing after ordering a 120-day pause early in his tenure as part of his “extreme vetting” policy.
Officials said they used the 120-day pause to stiffen vetting, demand more personal information from would-be refugees, push fraud investigators into the field to try to spot troublesome applications and boost information-sharing to try to weed out bad candidates.
