The Trump administration yesterday unveiled new travel restrictions on certain foreigners from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

"Making America Safe is my No. 1 priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet," President Donald Trump tweeted following the release of the new restrictions.

He spoke further in a White House statement.
