Trump signs executive action to keep out 'radical Islamic terrorists'
(CNN) - President Donald Trump signed twoexecutive actions Friday at the Department of Defense, including one limiting the flow of refugees into the United States by instituting what the President has called "extreme vetting" of immigrants.
Titled "Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States," the measure would start to make good on Trump's promise to tighten borders and halt certain refugees from entering the United States.
"I am establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America," Trump said during the signing at the Pentagon after the swearing-in of Defense Secretary James Mattis. "We don't want them here."
He added, "We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people."
The White House has not yet released the official text of the executive actions. - Read More
