Outside the Box: 5 reasons Congress should repeal Trump’s immigrant and refugee ban

President Trump signed an executive order Friday that would ban all Syrian refugees and almost all refugees from all countries from entering the U.S. for six months, while cutting the overall annual limit for refugees in half and banning for at least 90 days all immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. The order implies this ban could continue indefinitely for certain countries. These policies won’t improve national security and will undermine America’s efforts to combat Islamic extremism and terrorism around the world.

1) The order violates the law. Under the Immigration Act of 1965, the president may not refuse to give visas to immigrants coming to live in the United States permanently due to their nationality.
