President Trump’s Executive Orders on Immigration
The executive orders:
(1) Immigration enforcement and border wall orders:
- On January 25, President Trump issued two executive orders.
- The border enforcement order, puts forth the president’s proposal to build a massive wall on the border in addition to a dangerous array of policies that will undermine basic due process protections and the basic rights of asylum seekers seeking safety on our southern border.
- The interior enforcement order, outlines massive changes to the interior enforcement of the immigration laws, placing unconstitutional restraints on community policing efforts and announcing a set of enforcement priorities that are certain to breed racial profiling while tearing communities apart.
- (1) suspends the full U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for at least 120 days
- (2) indefinitely suspends U.S. resettlement for refugees from Syria.
- (3) suspends all other immigrant and non-immigrant admissions to the United States for at least 90 days for individuals from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and Libya.
- 1) Consult with an immigration attorney before traveling outside the United States.
- 2) Individuals outside of the United States and prevented from returning should contact an immigration attorney.
- 3) Individuals with pending applications for immigration benefits should contact an immigration attorney, as they may experience delays in the adjudication of their cases.
