On March 6, President Trump issued the executive order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States”, effective March 16, 2017. This order revokes the previous executive order issued on January 27, 2017 under the same name, which has been the subject of numerous lawsuits. President Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, stated the new order should promote the administration’s goals and end litigation regarding the January 27th order. Some claim the order is a just a watered-down Muslim ban and others praise the order.
President-elect Trump promised immigration reform on the election trail. Right now, we don’t have a full sense of what his reform will look like. Still, there is no reason to panic or make hasty decisions. We should take the time to acquire the necessary facts by gathering knowledge from reputable sources. We must also be vigilant about notarios and scammers, who will prey on people who are confused or fearful.
