Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders this week to prevent Syrian refugees and Muslim immigrants from entering the United States. He’s also expected to order the construction of his infamous, Mexican border wall on Wednesday.
President Trump’s restrictions will likely include a multi-month ban on admitting immigrants from all countries until the State Department and Department of Homeland Security finalize an “extreme vetting” process.
Nihad Awad, the national executive director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, condemned the initial media reports of President Trump’s immigration orders.
“These [executive orders] will not make our nation safer,” he tweeted Tuesday night, “rather they will make it more fearful and less welcoming.”
