US Customs Provides Data on Early Results of Trump's Executive Order

February 02, 2017

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection branch of the federal Department of Homeland Security has released data on its website detailing the initial effects of President Donald Trump's executive order of Jan. 27, barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for 90 days and suspending the admission of all refugees for 120 days. The countries listed are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, with the following statistics complied as of Feb. 1:

940 people were recommended to be denied boarding a plane bound for the U.S. from those seven countries. 1,607 waivers were granted to legal permanent residents of the U.S. wishing to return home from the listed countries.

2 people considered legal permanent residents of the U.S. were not allowed to enter, one due to a "criminal record," and one who chose to go to Canada instead of the U.S and withdrew a request for entry.

81 visa holders were granted waivers to enter the U.S. from the listed countries.

The report notes that, as of Feb. 1, no aliens who had received special immigrant visas had been denied entry into the U.S. from the banned countries. Among questions clarified, the CBP said: "Travelers are being treated according to the travel document they present."

In regard to the protests that have taken place at airports around the world, CBP stated: "The Department of Homeland Security fully respects the rights of all people to voice their opinion within the confines of the law."

The report also notes: "There are currently 872 refugees who are considered to be in transit who are scheduled to arrive in the United States this week. The Secretaries of State and DHS have coordinated and will process the 872 individuals consistent with the terms of the Executive Order, which we've operationalized by assessing each traveler on a case-by-case basis."

U.S. Customs is "committed to ensuring that all individuals affected by the Executive Orders, including those affected by the court orders, are being provided all rights afforded under the law. We are also working closely with airline partners to prevent travelers who would not be granted entry under the Executive Orders from boarding international flights to the United States."
