    Hi Ron

    I want to understand based on the EO what is the "potential" impact to the foreign born US citizens?

    I see from your newsletter you recommend avoiding international travel. But i want to see where the concern is coming from, reading the EO.

    I see the following text

    Section#1
    " In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including "honor" killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation."

    Is this the one that is causing concern? Sorry i am trying to map back to the Executive order text.

    This will help us understand this risk better. I want to thank you for proactively sending the newsletter on this with good information. Thank you!!

    At the end of the day, the courts will protect all U.S. citizens - irrespective of place of birth.

    In the days following Friday's EO, some dual national U.S. citizens who had been born or resided in one of the seven named countries were turned away. Over the weekend, the courts came down very hard on this practice and issued orders prohibiting the exclusion of these individuals.
