Trump to introduce register for Muslim immigrants

Anyone visiting the country from countries deemed “higher risk” will be interrogated and fingerprinted under the scheme.

Under the same programme, some male US non-citizen residents over the age of 16 were required to periodically check in at government offices.

The programme was deemed redundant by the department of homeland security in 2011 after claims it was unfairly targeting immigrants from Muslim-majority nations.

Kris Kobach revealed that the Trump team is going to “hit the ground running” with some of his most controsversial policies.

The Kansas secretary of state said Mr Trump, will opt for a system of extreme vetting after his shock White House win.

The process, he said, would be applied to new arrivals from countries where extremist groups are active.

In a wide-ranging interview Mr Kobach also said Mr Trump’s immigration team are drafting executive orders that would allow the new White House to secure the rapid construction of his promised wall along the border with Mexico.
