Executive order on small business regulations

U.S. President Donald Trump signed the executive order instituting the travel restrictions Friday at the Pentagon in Arlington Va US companies scramble to cope with 7-country immigration ban

But the order itself was not posted on the official website, WH.gov, for the public to read for three days.

President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his move to ban entry of refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority nations and said the United States would resume issuing visas for all countries in the next 90 days as he faced rising criticism at home and overseas and new protests in USA cities.

The Labour party leader said: "Donald Trump should not be welcomed to Britain while he abuses our shared values with his shameful Muslim ban and attacks on refugees' and women's rights".

And the executive order has already triggered retaliatory measures.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said USA green-card holders - legal residents - would also not be affected, but some have been detained since the order came into effect.

"Now, you can point to other countries that have similar problems, like Pakistan and others".

As well as the ban on all refugees, travellers who have nationality or dual nationality of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are not permitted to enter the USA for 90 days, or be issued an immigrant or non-immigrant visa.

Boy Scouts of America leaders lifted a blanket ban on gay troop leaders and employees in July 2015 amid intense pressure. And it was only three years ago that it allowed allowed openly gay youths to join scouting.

Kenneth Kimmell, the president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, put out a statement warning that the order could put the agency in an impossible position.

Well over half a million people have signed a petition to cancel Mr Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom, meaning it must be needed to be considered for debate by MPs.

President Trump signed the order at 4:42 p.m EST, forcing federal officials to scramble to implement the policy over the weekend. "Identifying too many people in these countries and giving them a heads-up in these countries would only potentially flag the executive order for bad order", Priebus said.

Republican Senator Rob Portman of OH said on CNN that he didn't think the executive action was properly reviewed. Diplomats can use the dissent channel to oppose USA government policy, which was set up after the Vietnam war to avoid group think.

Reince Priebus, who is assistant to Trump and his chief of staff, released a memorandum that contained the subject line "Regulatory Freeze Pending Review" to outline six specific steps the heads of executive departments and agencies are to follow, including the halt of new regulatory actions for at least 60 days. "[Critics] are basing their opinion on misguided media reports". Trump defended his action in a statement, saying the order is not about religion but "about terror and keeping our country safe".

The order, issued Saturday by U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema, also says that anyone detained at the airport should have access to a lawyer.
