Trump’s Executive Order Immigration Ban Exempts “Refugees” & “Essential Workers”

It seems with President Donald Trump nothing is ever as it seems, or is it?  I guess if you know what to look for, then you shouldn’t be surprised.  The latest executive order by President Trump is just that.  In his latest immigration ban, it will include a variety of categories of people who won’t even be affected by it.

Trump tweeted, “In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!”

Paul Joseph Watson reported on the draft of the EO:

The news was greeted with massive enthusiasm from Trump’s base, some of whom feel he hasn’t done enough to fulfil his campaign promise of building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants.

However, it has now been revealed that there are a number of caveats.

Bloomberg News reports that the EO “includes exceptions for people seeking jobs in “food production and directly helping to protect the supply chain,” which could apply to farm workers.”

Refugees and asylum seekers will continue to be allowed to enter America, along with “spouses and children of U.S. citizens or permanent residents.”

Exemptions also apply for people considered “essential workers” as well as “any alien whose entry would be in the national interest.”

The draft executive order doesn’t have a start date but will expire 90 days after being implemented.

“With over 22 million Americans out of work and polls shifting dramatically in support for strict travel bans, restricting immigration has never been an easier sell,” comments Chris Menahan. “While Trump’s rhetoric was nice, if these massive carve-outs remain then rhetoric is all we’re going to get.”

This certainly isn’t the first time that Trump has said one thing while doing another and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

However, it should be another eye-opener for his supporters that continue to blindly follow him off the cliff rather than calling him out.
