President Trump announces preparations for stricter refugees screening

US President Donald Trump will allow refugee admissions to the US to resume while announcing stricter rules for vetting applicants.

According to US media reports, it comes as the 120-day ban on refugees expired yesterday. It had been part of Trump’s executive orders that came to be known as the “travel ban”.

Last month Trump announced the lowest cap on refugee resettlements ever set by a US president. Officials say the decision comes after a diplomatic and intelligence review.
