U.S. President Donald Trump signed a sweeping new executive order Friday to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough controls on travelers from seven Muslim countries.Making good on one of his most controversial campaign promises, and to the horror of human rights groups, Trump said he was making America safe from "radical Islamic terrorists". Trump's decree suspends the entire U.S. refugee resettlement program for at least 120 days while tough new vetting rules are established.In addition, it specifically bars Syrian refugees from the United States indefinitely, or until the president himself decides that they no longer pose a threat.By choosing countries with Muslim majorities for tougher treatment, Romero argued, Trump's order breaches the U.S. Constitution's ban on religious discrimination.Trump's order also cut the number of refugees the United States plans to resettle in fiscal year 2017 -- which is calculated from last October -- from 110,000 to 50,000 .Trump showered Mattis with praise.
