On a busy Friday in Washington, Vice President Pence addressed the March for Life, marking the first time a sitting vice president has spoken in person to the annual anti-abortion gathering. At the White House, President Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May, where they held a brief joint press conference covering a range of topics including Russian sanctions, the NATO alliance, and United States policy on torture.

It was reported and later confirmed by the President that he spoke this morning with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. The White House readout of the call said that the conversation was “productive and constructive.”

President Trump signed two executive orders at the Pentagon. The first order (p. 1, p. 2, p. 3) immediately suspended for 90 days “entry into the United States, as immigrants and non-immigrants” from several Middle Eastern and North African countries. The order further stated that the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program is to be suspended for 120 days and that upon resumption the Secretary of State and Secretary of Homeland Security are to “prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.” The order reduced the number of permitted refugees in fiscal year 2017 to 50,000 individuals, suspended the entry of Syrian nationals indefinitely subject to the determination of the President, and instituted a number of other measures directed at immigration and the travel of foreign nationals.

The full text of the second order was not released as of 9 p.m. ET, but it reportedly calls for a readiness review of the military, as well as more spending on weapons and equipment.
