Donald Trump Set to ban Syrian Refugees

As President Donald Trump rolled out a series of executive orders this week aimed at stepping up enforcement of immigration laws, a draft of another anticipated set of changes targeting foreigners began circulating in the media.

If signed as is, the presidential edict would gut the U.S. refugee program and halt entry to the U.S. for nationals from seven countries.

Several media outlets, including The Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times, have reported details of the changes obtained by their reporters. It was unclear how the reported changes would compare with the final executive order, but most of the policy points contained in the draft hew closely to Trump's campaign rhetoric and stated positions.

They would affect immigrants, visitors and refugees from majority-Muslim countries, with the aim — as the title of the executive order describes — of "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals."

President Trump was asked about reports of the proposed changes in an interview with ABC News Wednesday. He did not confirm any details, but said the measures are aimed at improving U.S. security.

“Our country has enough problems without allowing people to come in who, in many cases or in some cases, are looking to do tremendous destruction,” he said.
