Dallas, TX – On Monday, President Donald Trump issued an Executive Order calling for a halt on immigration, Chairman Phillip Huffines of the Dallas County Republican Party had this to say:
“President Trump promised two things while campaigning: to put Americans first and to secure our borders. This Executive Order takes a great step in accomplishing this,” said Chairman Huffines. “This temporary halt on immigration from countries known to be terrorist hot-beds gives our government time to effectively do its job and vet immigrants. For too long the safety of Americans has taken a backseat to a policy of appeasement.”
President Donald Trump Executive Order calls for a moratorium on travel from six countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. This moratorium puts a 90-day hold on the issuance of visas to citizens from the countries in order to reform the vetting process.
