New refugee ban announced: Yikes! Big news is that the FBI is watching 300 refugees!

300 refugees living in the US suspected of having Islamic terror connections!
For me, that is the biggest news that came out of the press conference this morning.
Here is the brief story at Breitbart:
Washington (AFP) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating around 300 refugees admitted into the United States for suspected terror-linked activities, US officials said Monday.
The officials gave the figure as justification for a just-announced 120-day halt on admitting refugees from any country to review security vetting procedures.
“Today more than 300 people, according to the FBI, who came here as refugees are under an FBI investigation today for potential terrorism-related activities,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said.
Unnamed spokesman at DHS:
“The salient fact here is that there are 300 individuals admitted and welcomed to the United States in the refugee admissions program who either infiltrated with hostile intent or who radicalized after admission to the United States,” he said.
Full text of the order is here. I don’t have time to look at it now.
We need to figure out if the 120 days starts when this EO goes in to effect on March 16th, or are they counting the 120 days back to the earlier January date. If it is the January date, then that stinks because there has been no halt for over a month now. If you find out let me know!
