What Trump's Executive Order on Immigration Does—and Doesn't Do

theatlantic.com/news/archive/2017/01/trump-immigration-order-muslims/514844/

Since there are a couple of threads addressing the recent executive order by President Trump regarding immigrants and refugees, I thought I’d post this article.

Who is affected?
For 120 days, the order bars the entry of any refugee who is awaiting resettlement in the U.S. It also prohibits all Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. until further notice. Additionally, it bans the citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries—Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen—from entering the U.S. on any visa category.*
On Saturday this included individuals who are permanent residents of the U.S. (green-card holders) who were traveling overseas to visit family or for work—though a senior administration official said their applications would be considered on a case-by-case basis. The official also said green-card holders from those countries who are in the U.S. will have to meet with a consular officer before leaving the U.S.

So ALL refugees are not being permitted, regardless of where they are from.

All Syrian refugees, until further notice.

The whole article is worth reading.
