Donald Trump’s Unexpected Refugee Program

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - 14:09

As a 120-day ban on refugees entering the country came to an end, the White House has announced that the US will temporarily delay processing for refugees from 11 “high risk" nations.

The US President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Tuesday that directs government agencies to resume the US refugee program, but according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a 90-day review period for those arriving from "11 countries previously identified as posing a higher risk to the United States" will be put in place, .Aljazeera reports.

The order also said that new "enhanced vetting" procedures will be implemented all refugees.

DHS officials declined to reveal the countries that are considered "high risk", but said in a statement that "admissions for applicants from those 11 high-risk countries will move forward on a case-by-case basis" during the review period.

The resumption of the refugee programme came as the 120-day ban on refugees ended on Tuesday.
