Donald TrumpToday president Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders starting onwards including a temporary ban for an indefinite period of  time for the most of the refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other countries of Middle East and Africa, according to  congressional aides and Washington immigration experts.

Trump, who tweeted on Tuesday night that a “big day” was planned on national security on Wednesday 25/01/2017 is expected to order a multi-month ban on allowing refugees into the United States except for religious minorities, supposedly Christians escaping persecution, until more elaborate vetting is in place.

Another order will block visas being issued to all applicants from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, according to the same unnamed inner sources.
