来自11个被认定高风险国家的难民提交的申请将增加90天的审查期,能否进入美国将根据个案审理的结果,必须认定接纳他们符合美国国家利益,他们对美国公民不构成威胁。

美国官员拒绝指明这11个国家,但是路透社和法新社说,他们是那些其国民进入美国已经必须经过更严格审查的国家 – 埃及、伊朗、伊拉克、利比亚、马里、朝鲜、索马里、南苏丹、苏丹、叙利亚和也门。

Trump Administration Resumes Refugee Admissions into U.S. -- but with Greater Restrictions

U.S. President Donald Trump has signed an executive order resuming the admission of refugees into the country, but imposed tougher scrutiny on nationals from 11 countries identified as posing a high risk to national security.

The new order was issued Tuesday as an earlier order that imposed a 120-day ban on refugee admissions expired. All refugees hoping to enter the United States will face additional, enhanced vetting measures, such as providing additional personal information than previously required.

Nationals from the 11 countries identified as high risk will face an extra 90-day review on their application, and will be admitted into the United States on a case-by-case basis if their entry is deemed in the national interest, and they pose no threat to Americans.

Officials refused to name the 11 countries, but both Reuters and the French news agency have identified them as the same countries whose nationals are already required to undergo higher-level screening -- Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Mali, North Korea, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Tillerson Visits India on Wednesday

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is holding talks Wednesday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders in New Delhi, where tensions between India and Pakistan are expected to be part of the discussions.

Tillerson was in Pakistan on Tuesday to urge leaders there to step up their efforts to counter militancy and terrorism.

The top U.S. diplomat led his delegation into meetings with Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the country’s military chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and the head of the spy agency and other top officials.

They discussed continued bilateral cooperation and partnership, and expanding economic ties between Pakistan and the United States, said a U.S. embassy statement.

"The Secretary reiterated President Donald Trump’s message that Pakistan must increase its efforts to eradicate militants and terrorists operating within the country," the statement said.

To address those concerns, it added, Secretary Tillerson outlined Washington’s new South Asia strategy and the vital role Pakistan can play to facilitate a peace process in Afghanistan that can bring stability and security to the region.

"Pakistan and the United States share common interests in establishing a stable, peaceful Afghanistan, defeating ISIS in South Asia, and eliminating terrorist groups that threaten both Pakistan and the United States," the statement quoted Tillerson as telling Pakistani officials.
