President Donald Trump sure works fast, barely five days into office and yet he is already fulfilling some of his strongest campaign promises including setting the ground works for the repeal and replacement of the infamous ObamaCare to taking a pro-life stance, among others. Another campaign priority is slated to be included in the President's quick actions on policies-that is, his passionate immigration reforms that will target illegal immigrants.

The Republican President is expected to sign a number of executive orders today that would restrict immigration with the end view of providing greater protection to Americans. Sources from congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter said that the President will sign his fresh set of executive orders relevant to immigration at the Department of Homeland Security.

The orders are expected to include restricting access to the U.S. for refugees and some visa holders from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. These are countries on the terrorist list of the U.S. which are also considered ISIS strongholds. President Trump has, of course, made a fervent commitment to crush ISIS, a policy pronouncement and strong stance he has been consistent with from the start of the campaign until after his inauguration.

Trump's forceful determination to annihilate ISIS " from the face of the earth"- as he often puts it- is in stark contrast to former president Barack Obama's tentative actions on Islamic radicalism out of obedience to so-called political correctness. The Democrat 44th president could not even call the terrorist group by its Islamic roots and affiliation in fear of offending Muslim sensibilities, even if in the process he has weakened the country's war against terrorism. President Trump is out to correct and reverse that with a tougher and decisive actions against ISIS.

The information on the signing of executive orders today was shared by aides and experts to Yahoo news on the request that their identities be withheld.
