Attribution should be to senior administration officials.The – what is said on the call will be embargoed until the conclusion of the call. As you know, on Monday, the United States Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the vast majority of the President’s March 6th Executive Order Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States could go into effect.As regards relationships with entities in the United States, these need to be formal, documented, and formed in the ordinary course of events rather than to evade the executive order itself.Importantly, I want to add that the fact that a resettlement agency in the United States has provided a formal assurance for refugees seeking admission is not sufficient, in and of itself, to establish a bona fide relationship under the ruling. SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL FOUR: Hello, also on the call from DHS is [Senior Administration Official Six] and [Senior Administration Official Seven].This was an organized and deliberate process, and implementation will be done professionally and expeditiously by all the agencies involved. [Senior Administration Official Two], if you could go first, please.
As recent events have shown, we are living in a very dangerous time, and the U. Government needs every available tool to prevent terrorists from entering the country and committing acts of bloodshed and violence.Individuals who are qualified will then be subjected to all vetting as normal. [Senior Administration Official Three] on the refugee side.All security and screening vetting will be applied to anybody who is deemed qualified for a visa. Let me say that our objective in implementing the executive order is to ensure the security of the United States, and we’re going to do so in as orderly a fashion as we possibly can.We’re going to provide additional information to the field on this. They will be available later to answer questions on specific portions of their agency’s implementation of the executive order.But I do want to note that based on our discussions with Department of Justice, we have already informed the field and our various partners that under the in-transit exception, refugees will be permitted to travel if they’ve been booked to travel through July 6th. I just want to hit on a couple of things generally with regard to what is going to take place.
