“Extreme vetting” was a frequent campaign promise of President Trump’s, and within days of taking office he ordered broad restrictions on travelers from several Muslim-majority countries, measures he deemed necessary until such a system was in place.
"Trump Is Creating a Vetting Center. Is It ‘Extreme’ Enough to End His Travel Ban?" is from the April 23, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Nick Miroff and narrated by Sam Scholl.
