President Donald Trump has kept yet another election promise.
He's suspended the the US Refugee Admissions Programme for 120 days
There's several key parts to this decision, but here's one that in a sane world would be uncontroversial:
All immigration programmes should include questions to "evaluate the applicant's likelihood of becoming a positively contributing member of society."
Who could possibly disagree with that?
The decision also means:
A ban on refugees from Syria until "significant changes" are made
A 90-day suspension on arrivals from Iraq, Syria, and countries designated "areas of concern"
To prioritise future refugee applications on the basis of religious-based persecution - but only if the person is part of a minority religion in their home country. So that's mostly Christians across the Middle East and Africa rather than Muslims.
A cap of 50,000 refugees in 2017 - less than half of the Obama open door policy number.
