Trump Plans Immigration Ban, Supports Syria Safe Zones

trumpWASHINGTON — After issuing executive orders to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and to push for greater enforcement against people who entered the country illegally, President Donald Trump is planning to issue another order banning entry to people from a set of Muslim-majority countries.

“It’s countries that have tremendous terror, and it’s countries where people are going to come in and cause us tremendous problems,” Trump said in an interview Wednesday with ABC News.
