    Awesome! He needs to sign an EO allowing white farmers from South Africa in since they are facing genocide.

    Under American law, the executive branch has nearly complete authority over refugee policy. With minimal involvement from Congress, the president can set a cap on the annual number of refugees admitted. Mr Trump, for example, has set this cap to 45,000—the lowest ever—though the actual number will be less than half that. So long as the White House does not articulate a policy of explicit exclusion, the chances of a successful court challenge are low. “They’ve clearly found a legal way to enforce the Muslim ban,” says Mark Hetfield, the president of HIAS, a refugee-resettlement agency. “They’ve realised that they can turn up the security vetting and keep everyone out.”

    So even if the Dems win one of the Chambers, Donnie "Tangerine" Trump can still control the numbers.

    It goes hand in hand with cutting EPA regulations.

    For every immigrant that we refuse to let in we can cut a regulation because
    the quality of air will not be affected.

    Excellent. Now let's take the next step and push for the Middle East especially the Gulf States to be the solution. Safe zones need to be setup there not 8 thousand miles away in a Western culture the refugees reject.

    Refugee numbers are controlled by the President. Not immigration numbers. I believe that is set by an act of Congress. The Immigration and Naturalization Act?
