- ban on admissions from all countries until the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security can make the vetting process more rigorous
( Reuters ) U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign several executive orders on Wednesday restricting immigration from Syria and six other Middle Eastern or African countries, according to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.
In addition to Syria, Trump’s orders are expected to temporarily restrict access to the United States for most refugees. Another order will block visas from being issued to those from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.
The restrictions on refugees are likely to include a multi-month ban on admissions from all countries until the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security can make the vetting process more rigorous.
Stephen Legomsky, a former chief counsel at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Obama administration, said the president has the authority to limit refugee admissions and the issuance of visas to specific countries if it is determined to be in the public’s interest.

Biblical storm ‘sent by God’. A massive storm cloud of dust and rain on the border of Israel-Syria occured at 8 AM on December 1, and “sat like a barrier between ISIS (Islamic State) and Israel,” Israel News Online, which posted the video, said. The storm did not enter Israel’s Golan Heights region but just sat there on the border like a barrier.
A video of the storm was posted on Facebook with the caption: “This strange storm of what appears to be dust, cloud and rain did NOT cross the border fence into Israel.
“It sat like a barrier between ISIS and Israel.”
Some suggested the storm was a “sign from God”, with Orlando Houston writing: “God protecting his chosen people yet again.”
It comes weeks after ISIS opened fire on Israeli soldiers stationed at the Golan Heights.
Israeli troops responded by opening fire on the truck and sending fighter jets to the scene and destroying the vehicle, killing four ISIS members inside.
