Donald Trump expected to ban refugees, restrict muslim visitors: the new president of America consistently executes pre-election promises
Donald Trump got from his counsellors – and will soon sign – a draft decree, according to which the United States will stop receiving refugees from Syria, as well as suspend funding an extensive program for refugees for the next 120 days.
The president will conduct counterterrorism policy and limit immigration from other countries
The document is a continuation of Trump’s actions to tighten the #Immigration policy, which also includes a plan of the promised wall construction on the Mexican border. At the same time, in a statement about its construction, Donald Trump said he did not intend to create new laws: “We will work with existing systems and structures.”
So, speaking of the construction of the wall – it is based on the 2006 law, according to which a fence should be built for 3000 km on the Mexican border. However, after the construction of 1000 km, the construction was suspended under the decree. The White House expects to finance the building of the wall with the help of US southern neighbour. However, the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto has repeatedly stated that he would not pay a cent for the construction, and now IS going to cancel a scheduled meeting with Trump.
The coordinated document states the termination of the issuance of visas to citizens of Muslim countries – Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Libya – at least for the next month. These intentions were warmly greeted by allies of the Republican Party in Congress. however, THEY caused fierce criticism of the immigration policy advocates and even created new tensions in relations with the Mexican government.
Former US Secretary of State in President Bill Clinton’s administration – Madeleine Albright said in his microblog on Twitter that America must remain open to people of any religion and any nationality. Sociological results also note that a significant part of Americans perceive such actions of the president as positive because America got tired of the influx of refugees. It corresponds to many factors, but the main is the competition for jobs – it is believed that most of the jobs are taken by immigrants from different countries.
Trump is going to stop the migration from countries that are a harbour and stronghold of international terrorism
Of course, this will have a negative impact on diplomatic relations and strategic positions of states. Thus, the United States will ruin ties with Iran and other countries even more. Experts in their field emphasise that Trump does not seek to “make friends” with the Middle East. The only country that relates to Trump’s interests – is Israel. The US does not want to bear the burden of responsibility for the Middle East propagation: the main agenda will be the fight against terrorism.
