The President of the United States of America, U.S., Donald J. Trump, is set to sign an Executive order, which prohibits US embassies from issuing visas to citizens of seven African and Asian countries.
According to Immigration Experts, the affected countries are: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.
Meanwhile, Trump has also signed an Executive order, for a wall to be built along the Southern US border with Mexico.
Recall, that building a 2,000-mile barrier along the Mexican border, was one of his key pledges in the Trump election campaign.
“We have been talking about this right from the beginning,” he said, as he signed the actions during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, on Wednesday.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump told ABC News, that he would recoup costs of the wall – for which the US Congress would need to approve funding.
“We are going to be starting those negotiations relatively soon. And we will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico,” Trump said.
“I’m just telling you that there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form.”
“It is also going to be good for Mexico”, he added.
Trump had previously estimated that the wall would cost $8bn (£6.4bn), but critics have suggested it could be nearly double that sum
