How do you know a given immigrant is illegal? Have they been found guilty of that crime in a court of law? All persons are entitled to due process, all persons are innocent until proven guilty regardless immigration status.
And what makes you ask if the policy is legal? Can you cite a court case ruling the policy illegal or un-Constitutional? Until either happens the policy is perfectly legal.

Or if you read it, did you not comprehend what it said?
As it turns out the process remains essentially the same, the only change is the length of time one must stay out of the US.
The policy is pragmatic and appropriate.
Your opposition to the policy is partisan only, along with your fear, hate, and ignorance of those whom you perceive to be different.
Is that what you wonder? You must be ignorant and uninformed. Yes, it's legal. The President is the head of the Executive Branch. Congress creates laws, but the President gets to set priorities and practices on how the law will be executed. It's called balance of power.
Personally, I disapprove of this measure. But there's no question that it is a legal exercise of Presidential power.
