President Donald Trump has allowed the resumption of refugee admissions into the U.S. under new, stricter screening rules but ordered nationals from 11 countries believed to pose higher risk to U.S. national security to face even tougher scrutiny.Trump issued his new order on refugee screening Tuesday as the administration's four-month ban on refugee admissions expired. Trump last month capped refugee admissions at 45,000 for the year that started Oct. 1, a significant cut from the 110,000 limit put in place a year earlier by President Barack Obama.The limits on refugees were in addition to Trump's broader "travel ban" on people from several countries, including six countries with Muslim majorities.Trump has said the best way to help refugees is to keep them closer to their home countries.
