Following President Trump’s executive order on immigration, Stephen Miller, the White House policy director revealed to officials of the State Department, Customs and Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security and others that Trump is deeply committed to the executive order and has the support of the public.

On that note, Trump administration officials are discussing the possibility of asking foreign visitors to disclose all websites and social media sites they visit, and to share the contacts in their cell phones. Refusal to comply could lead to the visitor being denied entry.


The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, was contacted by CNN for comments but he did not respond. Meanwhile, on Sunday, Trump defended the executive order he signed, saying in a statement that the ban was not about religion but about keeping America safe.

“We will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do while protecting our own citizens and voters,”¬† He said.

“This is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion — this is about terror and keeping our country safe.”
