When Donald Trump ran for president, he promised to suspend the resettlement of Syrian refugees and “keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.”
A week after taking office, he signed an executive order calling for a 120-day pause on the inflow of all refugees, as well as a suspension of the Syrian refugee program. That executive order also included Trump’s 90-day “travel ban” of visa holders from seven terror-prone Islamic nations: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Yemen.
The established political elite, however, fought back.
A federal judge blocked Trump’s executive order, and two other judges blocked a revised version of the order in March, allowing the refugee flow to continue.
Since Jan. 21, the day after Trump took office, the U.S. has resettled 6,512 refugees from the seven countries named in Trump’s original travel ban, according to data from the Refugee Processing Center. Ofpost was originally published on this site
