Trump Signs 2 New Executive Orders On Military, Refugees

During the swearing-in of new Defense Secretary James Mattis, President Trump also signed two new executive orders.

The orders covered two of his favorite topics from the campaign trail: national defense and immigration.

According to Trump, these new orders pave the way for more defense spending and tougher immigration procedures.

Military spending usually isn't a problem for Congress. Legislators recently authorized almost $619 billion in defense spending.

But it's not clear how much more extreme U.S. refugee vetting can get — the current procedures are already pretty rigorous.
