On Friday, Indiana Gov.
Eric Holcomb said he will sign an executive order limiting travel by people coming from five countries that include Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Sudan.
Holcomb made the announcement at a news conference to announce a new round of travel restrictions.
The order, which takes effect July 1, is aimed at cutting the number of travelers coming from the five nations.
Holcom said he has been trying to get a handle on the “unintended consequences” of the travel restrictions and that it is important for the state to be able to “continue to protect the public from the threat posed by terrorists.”
The order applies to visitors from the following countries: Iran, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
It also affects people from Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen who travel to the United States from those countries.
Indiana’s governor said he was concerned about what could happen when people from those nations arrived at Indiana International Airport to visit family or friends and would have to be screened before boarding.
He said Indiana was not able to predict the consequences of the order.
Indiana also said it would allow people who are in transit from those five nations to stay in the state.
Holcombe said he is working with Homeland Security officials to develop a plan to ensure all people traveling from those four countries are screened before they arrive at Indiana airports.
The governor said his goal is to make Indiana the safest state in the country when it comes to traveling.
“When the Indiana General Assembly and the governor are in a position of power to make decisions on immigration policy, I will always be prepared to stand up for Hoosiers’ safety,” Holcomb wrote in a statement.
“While this is a time of heightened concern, I remain committed to upholding the fundamental right of Hoosier families to come to Indiana and work and play.”
Holcomb’s order comes a day after President Donald Trump signed an executive action to temporarily suspend refugee resettlement in the United State, which could have an impact on the state’s tourism economy.
Trump has said the executive order was intended to “send a message” that “people coming into the United Kingdom, Germany and other European countries aren’t welcome.”
Holcom announced the executive action, which will allow refugees from those six countries to stay temporarily in Indiana.
The state’s population is about 8.5 million.
Indiana is home to about 1.3 million refugees, according to the state Office of Refugee Resettlement.
The executive order says people coming to Indiana from those seven countries will be required to be vetted and are subject to additional requirements for obtaining driver’s licenses.
Holbrook said in a news release that Indiana will have no additional restrictions on international flights.
Holcrest’s order says the governor wants to make it clear that the travel restriction will apply to those who want to come from those regions.
Holcourt said his order does not apply to individuals coming from Iran, Libya or Somalia, but that the order applies if they are coming from one of those countries to Indiana for a period of 90 days or more.
Holcuestan said in his statement that Holcomb was not clear enough about what would happen if people from these nations come to the U.S. to visit.
“The executive order does nothing to affect the people from Iran who have already made a request for refugee status in Indiana, Holcuestsaid.
Holmer said the order does allow for people from countries that have “frequent and credible travel patterns” to come and stay in Indiana for 90 days. “
But if the people are coming here for a specific period of time, we can see if they come to this state,” Holcestan wrote.
Holmer said the order does allow for people from countries that have “frequent and credible travel patterns” to come and stay in Indiana for 90 days.
The president signed an order Friday to temporarily ban travel from Iran and seven other nations.
The Trump administration has said Iran is one of the countries under scrutiny, along with Iraq, Syria and Sudan, for allegedly trying to develop nuclear weapons.
Holmwell’s executive order will also apply to people from Libya, which has been plagued by violence and is the subject of U.N. sanctions.
Holmin said Holcstain order will apply only to visitors coming from those nine nations.
“That’s it,” Holmcomb said.
Holce said the governor will meet with Homeland Secretary John Kelly to determine how to apply the order to people who arrive in Indiana from Libya and Sudan or other countries.
Holsdon said Holcombe’s order is intended to help protect Indiana and the state is working to find a way to keep people safe.
Holnce said Holcom was right to point out the state does not have the capacity to prevent these terrorists from coming here, Holcombe wrote.
“It is my hope that our new governor and the legislature will work together to prevent a terrorist attack on Hoosicom in Indiana.”
Holsdone added that Holcweinens order is not
