Reuters: Under Trump Plan, Refugees from 11 Countries Face Additional U.S. Barriers

Reuters reports that the Trump administration will temporarily delay the processing of most refugees from 11 countries identified as high risk, while resuming refugee admissions for other countries. Per an Executive Order signed yesterday, the United States Refugee Admissions Program will be resumed with enhanced vetting, including 90-day and 180-day benchmarks for evaluating admissions. The administration also will place on hold a program that allows for family reunification for some refugees resettled in the United States. According to a joint memo released by DOS, DHS, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the new policy is in the interests of protecting U.S. national security.
