The decree of the President of the United States Donald trump on the limitation of admission of refugees in the United States hit in the media that it has published on its website the New York Times. It provides for a complete ban of entry to the United States for refugees from Syria, where the most active terrorist group «Islamic state». For refugees from all other countries will be denied entry for 120 days, during which time the administration plans to revise audit procedures. Before trump has signed the decree about the beginning of the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, after which the President Enrique peña Nieto wondered about the cancellation of his visit to the United States.
That trump plans to limit entry into the United States refugees from Muslim countries, us media reported yesterday. However, specific measures in this area remained unknown. Now at the disposal of journalists hit the eight-page draft decree involving very stringent regulatory measures.
The text of the decree States that «to protect Americans… you must be sure that received the entry permit have no hostile intentions concerning our country or its founding principles.» It also asserts that currently, the approval of all the citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen «harmful» to US interests. From the publication of the NYT it was unclear whether the proposal involve refugees or nationals of these countries applying for a U.S. visa.
Sean Spicer, a spokesman for the White house, commented on the initiative: «the Federal Agency will be, without exception to apply the law — without (any) «if» and «but»… the American people ultimately decide who might enter and who not.»
After 120 days of the moratorium and the introduction of new procedures, the program is expected to be reduced by more than two times: the US in 2017 will be about 50 thousand refugees, not 110 thousand, as expected by the previous administration.
Trump in the election campaign repeatedly made tough statements about Muslims. So, in December 2015, after the shooting in San Bernardino, he urged temporarily to impose «total ban on entry of Muslims in the United States.» The next day after the terrorist attack in Orlando trump has promised in case of victory in the elections to completely stop immigration from those regions where the terrorist threat to the United States, Europe and their allies.
Completely forbidding the admission of refugees from Syria affected by the war of the various factions with the terrorists «Islamic state» and between him, trump is the alternative. Reuters, citing a draft decree reports that the administration proposes to create a «safe zone» for civilians.
A plan to create a prescribed to make the Pentagon and the state Department. The document does not say that they represent those areas where they can be created and who will ensure the safety of those civilians there.
As noted by RIA «Novosti», the previous Obama administration considered the possibility of creating «safe zones» or «no-fly zones.» However, there came to the conclusion that the security regime will require serious efforts from the US military and would risk drawing in Syria’s internal conflict.
Reuters notes that in case of violation of the above declared no-fly zones, the United States can directly interfere with aircraft of the government army Bashar al-Assad or help him with the Russian HQs. Also, the protection of such areas is likely to require the introduction of ground troops, which Obama has sought to avoid.
Speaker of the house of representatives of the us Congress Paul Ryan in an interview with MSNBC, said that the Congress will block funding for the construction of the wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, reports «Interfax».
According to him, the price of the project is 8-14 billion — «roughly correct.»
However, he noted that «there are other ways to» force Mexico «pay» what the President is seeking Donald trump, seeking to reduce the inflow of illegal Mexican immigrants.
At the same time, Ryan said that Republicans in Congress agree that border protection should be strengthened, and what wants to achieve trump.
