Rumors are spreading about possible executive orders from the Trump administration, following the travel ban. It should be noted not to trust any sources until the orders are announced. Many news organizations have a liberal point of view, so it's unlikely that a conservative administration would leak any information to them beforehand.
That said, we want to break down barriers to knowledge, so here's the latest scoop on potential executive actions. These are not binding law, unlike a signed executive action.
The Hill is reporting that the administration is considering two separate actions. The first order would target the benefits that immigrants receive from the government. Following the refugee crisis in Europe, many complained that the migrants were so-called economic refugees--simply interested in collecting pensions from welfare states such as Sweden and Germany. So this order, allegedly, would deny an immigrant applicant who's likely to receive government welfare.
The second order would remove an immigrant's work provision if he or she has broken immigration law. It's designed to reverse the so-called negative impact of immigrants on the labor force.
Our Verdict: These orders can and will change over time. President Trump has proven that he is liable to decide at the last minute to alter something. That said, the general idea of the orders is entirely consistent with his campaign message--and these campaign promises are entirely consistent with his governing so far. So we expect some version of these orders to take effect in the next news cycle, once the uproar over the Muslim ban dies down.
