Trump bans Syrian refugees, restricts entry from Muslim states
by Jordan Fabian, Katie Bo Williams and Lisa Hagen
President Trump on Friday signed an executive order that he said would provide a thorough vetting of refugees to ensure that "radical Islamic terrorists" cannot get into the United States.
Trump is following through on his pledge to set a hardline stance on national security, but the new policy was denounced as discriminatory and unconstitutional by human-rights groups and Democrats.
"I'm establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America," Trump said at a signing ceremony at the Pentagon, hours before the text of his order was released.
