Executive Order: Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States

EXECUTIVE ORDER

- - - - - - -

ENHANCING PUBLIC SAFETY IN THE INTERIOR OF THE
UNITED STATES

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.), and in order to ensure the public safety of the American people in communities across the United States as well as to ensure that our Nation's immigration laws are faithfully executed, I hereby declare the policy of the executive branch to be, and order, as follows:

Section 1.  Purpose.  Interior enforcement of our Nation's immigration laws is critically important to the national security and public safety of the United States.  Many aliens who illegally enter the United States and those who overstay or otherwise violate the terms of their visas present a significant threat to national security and public safety.  This is particularly so for aliens who engage in criminal conduct in the United States.

Sanctuary jurisdictions across the United States willfully violate Federal law in an attempt to shield aliens from removal from the United States.  These jurisdictions have caused immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic.

Tens of thousands of removable aliens have been released into communities across the country, solely because their home countries refuse to accept their repatriation.  Many of these aliens are criminals who have served time in our Federal, State, and local jails.  The presence of such individuals in the United States, and the practices of foreign nations that refuse the repatriation of their nationals, are contrary to the national interest.

Although Federal immigration law provides a framework for Federal-State partnerships in enforcing our immigration laws to ensure the removal of aliens who have no right to be in the United States, the Federal Government has failed to discharge this basic sovereign responsibility.  We cannot faithfully execute the immigration laws of the United States if we exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.  The purpose of this order is to direct executive departments and agencies (agencies) to employ all lawful means to enforce the immigration laws of the United States.

Sec. 2.  Policy.  It is the policy of the executive branch to:

(a)  Ensure the faithful execution of the immigration laws of the United State

Tech companies on Saturday expressed concerns over President Donald Trump's order to restrict migration from several countries, with leaders saying the move could directly impact their own staffers. Silicon Valley's chieftans provided emotional support, as well as offers of legal assistance to employees affected by an executive order that banned all non-citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States for at least 90 days. The ban, which came only weeks after Trump sat down with Silicon Valley's top executives to express support for their innovation efforts, extends to workers who have visas and green cards and are currently out of the country. In an internal memo obtained by CNBC, Apple CEO Tim Cook told employees, "There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday's immigration order. Our HR, Legal and Security teams are in contact with them, and Apple will do everything we can to support them." Cook concluded by quoting Dr. Martin Luther King: "We may have all come on different ships, but we are in the same boat now." Executives from Microsoft, Google, Netflix, and Y Combinator, as well as educators at MIT and Carnegie Mellon, were among technology leaders who condemned President Donald Trump's wide-reaching order. The decision effectively blocks travelers from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Brad Smith, Microsoft's president and chief legal officer wrote on LinkedIn that there are 76 Microsoft employees from the 7 countries who have work visas, and are affected by the new order. It is offering those employees legal support regarding immigration. "We share the concerns about the impact of the executive order on our employees from the listed countries, all of whom have been in the United States lawfully, and we're actively working with them to provide legal advice and assistance," Microsoft told CNBC. Facebook also told CNBC that it was asse

How Does Trump's Immigration Freeze Square With His Business Interests?

NPR, January 28, 2017

Even as President Trump takes steps to restrict visitors from some majority-Muslim countries, he and his family continue to do business in some of the others. Ethics experts question whether that might indicate conflicts between Trump's business interests and his role as U.S. president.Critics said it appears that Trump is picking favorites, overlooking terrorist links in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey that have their own history of terrorism.

Court Temporarily Blocks Parts Of Trump’s Syrian Refugee And Travel Ban

Huffington Post, January 28, 2017

Late Saturday, a federal judge in Brooklyn temporarily halted parts of President Donald Trump’s sweeping executive order that aimed to block the entry of Syrian refugees and impose a de facto ban on travelers coming from several Muslim-majority countries.

The immediate reading of Donnelly’s order left several interpretations, but the nationwide stay specifically forbids the federal government from deporting refugees who have been cleared by immigration authorities to enter the country. It also protects “holders of valid immigrant and non-immigrant visas, and other individuals from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen, [who are] legally authorized to enter the United States.”

Yahoo News Jan. 29

The American Civil Liberties Union announced Saturday evening that a federal court in New York had issued an emergency stay on President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The court’s decision, which will affect people who have been detained in airports, came after the ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqis who were held at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York as a result of the order. “I hope Trump enjoys losing. He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of his losing,” ACLU national political director Faiz Shakir told Yahoo News shortly after the decision was announced. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the court ruling. Trump’s executive order, which he signed on Friday afternoon, barred people from Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Somalia from entering the United States for 90 days. It also stopped all refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days and indefinitely suspended the entry of refugees from Syria. As a result of the order, some people with current visas have already been detained or turned around at airports. The class action lawsuit sought an immediate injunction barring the Trump administration from blocking immigrants based on the executive order. It argued that the order violates a 1965 law that banned discrimination in immigration based on national origin. According to a copy of the court decision from Judge Ann Donnelly, it will stop officials from removing individuals with approved refugee applications, holders of valid visas and people from the affected countries who have been authorized to enter — pending completion of a hearing on the matter in court. Donnelly also wrote that the lawsuit would have a “strong likelihood of success.”

Apple, Uber, Netflix, Twitter join corporate rebuke of Trump immigration policy
 

Following the internal and public statements from the likes of Google, Facebook and Microsoft regarding the Trump administration's new immigration policy, two additional tech heavyweights have now added their voices to the fray...On Saturday, in an email obtained by Recode, Apple CEO Tim Cook, the head of the world's leading tech company, reportedly took a stance against the new policy. "Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do. I've heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support," wrote Cook in the email, according to the report. .. "There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday's immigration order. Our HR, Legal and Security teams are in contact with them, and Apple will do everything we can to support them. We’re providing resources on AppleWeb for anyone with questions or concerns about immigration policies. And we have reached out to the White House to explain the negative effect on our coworkers and our company." Similarly, in an internal memo from Uber CEO Travis Kalanick obtained by a New York Times reporter and posted on Twitter, the ride sharing company voiced its concerns and pledged to support its workers who are being impacted by the new policy. "Our People ops team has already reached out to the dozen or so employees who we know are affected," Kalanick's memo states, just after outlining the details of the new policy.

Dual citizens banned from entering US

Courier Mail

US Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly has stepped in to approve the entry of Green Card holders to the country as confusion reigns over a US immigration ban. “I hereby deem the entry of lawful permanent residents to be in the national interest,” a statement issued by the Department of Homeland Security reads. It follows widespread confusion across US border and customs control points as individual teams attempted to interpret and apply Friday’s executive order which has halted entry to the US by refugees and persons from seven Muslim majority countries. Whether or not this extends to green-card and dual citizenship holders had been a point of confusion. The matter had reportedly begun to affect even pilots and aircrew of international flights who held appropriate papers, with Emirates reporting it had to urgently adjust rosters. But the issue of green cards has now been cleared up: “Accordingly, absent the receipt of significant derogatory information indicating a serious threat to public safety and welfare, lawful permanent resident status will be a dispositive factor in our case-by-case determinations,” Mr Kelly said in the statement. President Donald Trump’s immigration order has sown chaos and outrage across the country , with travelers getting detained at airports, panicked families searching for relatives and protesters marching against the sweeping measure that was blocked by several federal courts. Attorneys struggled to determine how many people had been affected so far by the rules, which Trump said were “working out very nicely.”
