According to unnamed sources, since that’s been working, Reuters brings us their “exclusive” scoop that Trump is on the cusp of fulfilling yet another campaign promise, and is expected to sign several executive orders restricting immigration from “Syria and six other Middle Eastern or African Countries.”
The orders would likely be enacted via a combination of restricting travel for current visa holders and halting new visa issuance. Of course, Reuters’ starts off with the most Trump-damaging angle, pointing out that this would “temporarily restrict access to the United States for most refugees (who are not men of fighting age, I’m sure Reuters promises).” The article also fails to mention that this list of countries are filled with angry people who want Americans dead, and who seek to infiltrate and convert the local population and convince them to commit [NSFW] heinous acts against people who believe in a different God (and then sue for $25k when someone knocks their teeth out in jail). I recommend these countries fix their shit.
The words “Radical” “Islamic” “Terror” are nowhere to be found in the article. See if you can spot the trigger phrases…
Trump’s 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 increase the intensity of the vetting process.
The Republican president was expected to sign the orders at the Washington headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security, whose responsibilities include immigration and border security.
On the campaign trail, Trump initially proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States to protect Americans from jihadist attacks. Many Trump supporters decried Democratic President Barack Obama’s decision to increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States over fears that those fleeing the country’s civil war would carry out attacks.
Reuters also paints the most Orwellian picture possible, suggesting (from the same unnamed sources):
Other measures may include directing all agencies to finish work on a biometric identification system for non-citizens entering and exiting the United States and a crackdown on immigrants fraudulently receiving government benefits, according to the congressional aides and immigration experts.
Whether or not some or all this story is true, this piece of journalism from Reuters is a prime example of the type of one-sided hackery that has driven millions of people into the arms of alternative media for their daily dose of truth.
