Within the first month of Donald Trump's presidency, the President moved quickly to sign executive orders that would enforce a travel ban against Muslims. He also moved to put up his border wall between the Mexican-American border but has since grown frustrated with not being able to start it as soon as he wanted.

Nonetheless, the President has made other efforts to prioritize attacks against immigrants. During his campaign, the then-candidate Trump talked about "extreme vetting" where those immigrating to the United States would undergo a strict process to determine who he would allow to enter the country. It's now been reported that the administration will start the extreme vetting process for those getting green cards on October 1.

Every green card applicant to undergo in-person interviews

A spokesman for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) confirmed on Friday that the people who work visas who started the process for green cards would now undergo in-person interviews. The same would apply to family members who applied for provisional status which is a process of obtaining a green card. The President has made it no secret that he sees refugees and others immigrating from other countries as enemies, suspecting them of being terrorists. One article by Politico titled: "Trump administration introduces green card hurdle", refers to the spokesman, Carter Langston, who used another term "an incremental expansion" of the visa categories that will require interviews.

Trump's process is a big 'waste of time'

But the article also says that this requirement is not new and has often been waived for visa holders.

It's obvious that to the Trump administration, it still leaves the process open to let in the "wrong" kind of immigrants. The article points to the former president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association who says that the process is an effort to go "back to the future" of processing. In-person interviews were part of the process over a decade ago which likely had a lot to do with the terrorist attacks on 9/11. He said that immigration enforcement realized then that it was a colossal waste of time.

It's obvious that the entire point of the Trump's process is to extend the wait times to exhaust applicants. The Politico article states that a tracking tool on the USCIS's site showed that as if June 30, the agency was just beginning to process applications from six months before. Given the assumption that Trump means to exhaust the process, it doesn't matter what value it will have for people that President Trump doesn't value or prioritize.
