On Twitter, one of his favorite platforms for getting his message across, the President wrote: "Our legal system is broken!". The outlet reported 77 percent of refugees entering the USA since Trump's executive order was suspended were from the seven "suspect" countries. Quoting a Washington Times article published Thursday, Trump stated: "Our legal system is broken!"
That number is accurate.
He began around 6 a.m.by highlighting a report that came out the day before regarding refugees that have come into America since his travel ban was put on hold by the courts.
The Jan. 27 executive order signed by Trump as part of his "extreme vetting" policies barred visitors from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen for 90-days and a 120-day stop to admitting refugees into the country.
"You have eight US government agencies who are vetting them", William Lacey Swing, the director general of the United Nations International Organization for Migration, told NPR.
Knicks Owner James Dolan Bans Charles Oakley From MSG
Despite couples taking selfies in front and parents ushering happy kids inside, all is not well at Madison Square Garden. Mostly Jim Dolan is surrounded with sycophants and henchmen who help him carry out his petty grudges and person feuds.
Green card holders or permanent residents of the USA from the seven affected countries may be excluded from the travel ban if the decree is revised, according to a congressional aide. NBC verified with a U.S. State Department source that more than 70 percent of the 1,400 refugees accepted between February 4 and February 10 were from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Somalia or Sudan.
To lump all refugees from Syria, and other Middle Eastern and North African countries, in with terrorists is bigoted, prejudicial and wrong.
While the order does not mention Christianity, Trump has told media outlets such as Christian Broadcasting News that the order would prioritize Christian refugees. Federal courts temporarily halted the ban, then effectively denied the Justice Department's legal request to lift it. The controversial executive order was met with widespread protests across the country.
After Trump had claimed that courts are powerless to review a president's national security assessments, the court also argued stating that judges have an essential role in constitutional democracy.
The refugees that made up over 70 percent of admitted people in the week after the judge blocked Trump's order had already undergone an 18-month to two-year vetting process and had been scheduled to arrive into the USA, the State Department said.
