MPI Launches Series Assessing Trump Administration Executive Order Changes to Prior Policy; 1st Brief Examines Travel, Refugee Ban
WASHINGTON — Amid widespread public attention—in the United States and internationally—on the “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” executive order signed by President Trump on January 27, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) today released a brief that outlines the major provisions of the executive order and compares them to current and prior policy regarding admission of refugees and noncitizens from its seven designated countries.
The brief, Trump Executive Order on Refugees and Travel Ban: A Brief Review, represents the first in a series that will examine key provisions of the immigration-related executive orders signed to date. In addition to the executive order suspending the U.S. refugee resettlement program and pausing admission of noncitizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, President Trump also has signed executive orders dealing with immigration enforcement at the U.S. border and in the U.S. interior.
MPI has gathered in one place its research, commentaries and data resources most relevant to understanding of the Trump administration executive orders.
