“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has temporarily halted trips by staff to interview refugees abroad as it prepares for a likely shakeup of refugee policy by President Donald Trump, two sources with knowledge of the decision said on Thursday.
The decision effectively amounts to a pause in future refugee admissions, given that the interviews are a crucial step in an often years-long process.
The DHS leadership’s decision to halt the interview trips was communicated to those involved in the U.S. refugee admission process on Wednesday, one of the sources said.
It means that though Trump has not yet ordered a temporary halt to the refugee program, future admissions are likely to be delayed.
Trump is expected to sign an executive order that would include a temporary ban on all refugees, and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries. …”
President Trump hasn’t even issued an executive order yet and the Department of Homeland Security has already completely shut down the refugee resettlement program. There won’t be anymore of these Muslim jihadists being dumped in Middle Tennessee!
This is a cause near and dear to my heart. I’ve personally been in the streets protesting this.
Note: President Trump has even hung a portrait of the greatest Tennessean, Andrew Jackson, in the Oval Office. General Jackson was a nationalist and populist. This was a symbolic move.
