In the last three months, President Donald Trump has issued executive orders and signed executive orders to limit immigration.
And while he has also issued executive actions to restrict travel to the U.S. from certain countries, the executive orders haven’t been enforced.
That is because the Trump administration has been unwilling to release the data needed to enforce the orders.
The U.K. and Canada have had the ability to provide information to the executive branch about the number of people who are allowed into the U, according to the Office of Government Ethics, a federal watchdog group.
The government has also said it has “no legal authority” to enforce any of Trump’s executive orders, including the travel ban, according the Office for National Statistics.
As a result, there’s been confusion as to what’s legal and what’s not, says Matthew Elliott, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a former immigration official.
“What is the right level of immigration to allow?”
“I think the Trump White House and some of the agencies that have been in charge of the executive action process have been very hesitant to release any of the data to the public.
I think there’s a lot of wrong stuff about what is happening.”
Elliott says it’s also possible that some of Trumps executive orders are actually unconstitutional, such as the travel restriction, and that the U in fact has no immigration authority at all.
“They could potentially be violating the law,” Elliott says.
The travel ban was the most contentious of the three executive orders Trump issued.
The executive order temporarily banned entry to the United States to people from six Muslim-majority countries and indefinitely banned refugees from entering the country for 120 days.
But in the aftermath of the presidential election, Trump issued another executive order that did not apply to the seven countries but instead affected a much broader list of people, including some who had traveled to the country before and were eligible to come back, including those who are refugees.
The administration later rescinded the order.
Trump’s decision to issue two executive orders is the most significant move the Trump Administration has made to address the refugee crisis.
But the first two orders were not followed through on, according and Elliott.
They were delayed for almost a year by litigation from countries that had signed on to the refugee resettlement program.
Elliott says he believes the executive order issued by Trump is unconstitutional.
“The first executive order was not enforced,” Elliott said.
“It’s the second executive order, the second order was only issued after a legal challenge from the plaintiffs, the government that was trying to enforce it.
That’s what’s really problematic about the executive actions.
That was not followed up.
That wasn’t enforced.”
Elliott thinks the U could have gone much further by enforcing the executive executive orders.
“There’s some very good work that’s going on with respect to the resettlement program, that is helping people settle in the United State and that we should be encouraging and supporting,” Elliott added.
But Elliott says the Trumps actions are not doing enough to stop the crisis.
“This administration has not focused on a number of the very important issues, which is, how do we keep our country safe from terrorism and the kinds of terrorist organizations that are at the forefront of our concern and we need to be doing,” Elliott explained.
“We need to do a better job of identifying those threats and how we are going to protect ourselves.”
