* Trump’s ‘Extreme Vetting’ Executive Order, Preference for Christians, Federal Court Blocks Order (2017-01-29)

On 01/27/16, while at The Pentagon, Donald Trump signed two executive orders, one to rebuild the military (which is already stronger than the next 10 largest militaries combined), another to commence “extreme vetting” for seven majority Muslim nations (Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) for 90 days (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_13769). Executive Order 13769 carves out exceptions for “minority religions,” although the only such religion mentioned by Donald Trump by name has been Christianity. After nationwide chaos in international airports, including many protests, federal courts in multiple states began issuing temporary restraining orders (TROs) to halt parts or all of the order. No federal court has yet ruled on the merits of whether or not the executive order is constitutional.
