Prebus: Exec. Order a ‘Promise’ Trump Made and ‘It’s a Promise He’s Going to Keep’

‘—Seven countries that the Obama administration and both houses of Congress have identified as being countries that harbor and train terrorists’

EXCERPT:

REINCE PRIEBUS: "Absolutely. Look, yesterday, what people need to understand is that 325,000 foreign travelers came into the United States. About 109 of those people were retained, detained for further questioning because they came from the identified seven countries that the Obama administration and both houses of Congress have identified as being countries that harbor and train terrorists.

"They were asked questions. The vast majority of all those people were released. About a couple dozen people remain for further questioning. And my suspicion is those people will move on, as long as they’re not dangerous and as perhaps a couple of them will be further detained because it’s determined that they’re dangerous for this country. So, this was a promise that president-elect — President Trump had made. And it’s a promise that he is going to keep. And he’s not willing to be wrong on this subject. We need to do our best to be vigilant and protect Americans."
