WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is proposing an immigration policy which would feature “extreme vetting” and an ideological test for admission to the United States
Trump, in a speech Monday in Ohio, claims that many recent terror attacks in the U.S. have been carried out by immigrants or the children of immigrants.
He said he would temporarily suspend immigration from nations with a history of “exporting terrorism” and would ask the State Department for a list of regions where screening is not currently adequate.
Trump said:”The time is overdue to establish a new screening test for the threats we face today.” The Republican nominee also said the U.S. should screen out “any who have hostile attitudes to our country and its principles.”
Trump’s mother and wife were immigrants.
