A top US official says, there is a possibility in the future of Pakistan being included in the list of countries from where immigration has been banned in the United States.
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told CBS News that the reason United States chose those seven countries is that both the Congress and the Obama administration had identified these countries being most identifiable with dangerous terrorism. He said now, one can point to other countries that have similar problems, like Pakistan and others.
This is for the first time that the Trump Administration has publicly acknowledged about considering putting Pakistan into that list. Currently as per the executive order, visitors from countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan are subject to extreme vetting. Priebus asserted that Americans have to be protected first.
