Business leaders and some conservative Republicans in Congress are taking the administration’s tough stance on travel bans to its logical conclusion.
They say the ban will create a dangerous precedent, as businesses are free to bring foreign workers to the United States to work and to fill jobs, and some say it will encourage companies to leave the country, even if the workers are legal.
But many business leaders say they will continue to welcome those who are willing to do the hard work necessary to build American jobs.
And they say they are determined to hold the administration accountable.
“It’s been a tough, but a decisive, and decisive response,” said Dan Pfeiffer, CEO of Pfeifman, the American Express company.
“We are not going to let anyone say we were wrong.
We are going to continue to be successful in our efforts to hire Americans and make America great again.”
Trump’s executive order issued Saturday bans most travel from seven majority-Muslim nations and six other majority-Afghan and Muslim-majority countries.
The president’s order also suspends the U.S. refugee program for 120 days and temporarily blocks the U:S.
from accepting refugees for 120 more days, except for people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security said it has “worked tirelessly to determine how best to implement President Trump’s Executive Order, which has already been challenged by state and local governments, labor unions and other stakeholders, including the business community, academia and government officials.”
It said it is reviewing the order “to ensure it protects the American people and our economy.”
Pfeife said it was a mistake to try to undo the orders efforts to rein in immigration.
“The order is so important that we will work as hard as we can to protect it,” he said.
Trump’s actions have drawn criticism from both sides of the aisle.
Republican lawmakers and business leaders are concerned about how the president will use his power to cut off visas and prevent Americans from entering the country.
Democrats have called for the ban to be blocked altogether, saying it would only harm businesses and put Americans at risk.
The business community is also worried about the impact on foreign workers.
In his statement Friday, Trump said the U.:s actions are a direct assault on American workers and a direct attack on the values and principles of our great country.
“Americans are being told that if they cannot work, or work hard enough, they will be sent back home,” he wrote.
The order has been criticized by some conservatives and even by some Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
“The president’s travel restrictions are un-American, un-constitutional and unconstitutional, and they must end,” he tweeted.
The Trump administration is facing questions over its decision to suspend visas for some workers.
Trump has been issuing new visas to temporary workers, some of whom have been in the country for more than a year.
Some of those workers are coming from countries that are under Trump’s orders travel restrictions.
Those visas will be suspended indefinitely.
The administration is expected to announce further details of its travel restrictions in the coming days, and officials have been urging foreign workers in those countries to stay home.
The temporary ban on travel for people from Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Yemen will expire on Oct. 16, according to the State Department.
The ban also applies to those coming from Chad, the Horn of Africa, Iran and Yemen and those from Iraq, Somalia or Yemen.
Pfeifer said he will not go back to the U.-S.
to do his work.
“I don’t think anybody will go back, unless they are willing and qualified to do so,” he added.
“Our focus will be to create jobs and build our businesses here in America.”
