Reuters News Service reported last night that 872 Syrian Refugees have been cleared to enter the USA for settlement by the Trump Administration. Why? They already vetted using Obama Administration procedures which usually take two years to complete. This is in line with the waivers granted in Trump’s executive order.
In addition, the Defense Department has requested waivers for certain Iraqis who assisted our military efforts in that nation. Trump’s executive order does provide for exemptions where people have already been vetted.
