President Donald Trump has signed an executive memorandum that makes sweeping changes to US refugee and immigration policy on January 27. White House says is designed to protect the nation from terrorists who want to enter the country.

"The seven-page document calls for an immediate suspension of immigration from countries with ties to terror, including Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Iran and Libya, for a time period of 90 days. It also calls for the complete suspension of Syrian refugees for an indefinite period," according to ABC News.

"I’m establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. We don’t want them here. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people." Trump said.

The order also calls on the secretary of state to suspend the entire Refugee Admissions Program (meaning all countries) for 120 days while authorities review the application and adjudication process.

As it was reported earlier, Donald Trump signed two orders on strengthening the security of the US at the border and tougher immigration policies.
