Such a designation imposes wide-ranging economic and travel sanctions on companies and individuals who interact with the targeted group. The president responded affirmatively to Mr. el-Sisi, saying it would make sense. Some of Mr. Trump’s advisers have interpreted that as a commitment, officials said.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah elSisi is coming to visit the US first week of April, No, this is not an April Fool’s but it is the meeting of fools. The visit is the first official state visit for the Egyptian general at the invitation of president Trump, reported the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper. Trump seems to be fascinated with strong leaders like Putin and other dictators in the Middle East. To understand General elSisi, Mr. Trump who knows the importance of names, (the man puts his name on anything and anywhere;) needs to understand what names Egyptian put on their dictator. In fact people living under dictatorial regimes have no political choices, and can’t exercise freedom of expression, where change is hard to come by, Arab regimes are like catholic marriage, you live with it, until death do you apart. When people tried to change their regimes in Arab Spring and it turned out ugly. Therefore, Egyptians if they can’t change their dictators, the least Egyptians can do is change the dedicators names. Names are giving to us at birth to legitimize our existence, but they can also be giving later in life to challenge out existence. The same is true with dictators. Nasser was just called the “Leader” on a good day and the “Catastrophe” on a bad day, Sadat went from Mr. “Yes” to the faithful leader, then became the Traitor. Mubarak was called “La vache qui rit,” the laughing cow, a famous brand of French cheese in Egypt.

Approximately 86,000 Syrian immigrants resided in the United States in 2014, accounting for 0.2 percent of the nation’s 42.4 million immigrants. Though the population remains a small one, its growth occurred largely after the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 abolished the national-origins quota system and opened the door to Syrians seeking safety from war and persecution, as well as education and employment opportunities and family reunification. Between 2010 and 2014, the population grew approximately, owing largely to the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011.
The majority of Syrian immigrants come to the United States through family reunification channels rather than as refugees or asylum seekers or through employment-based channels. Compared to the overall foreign and native-born populations, Syrian immigrants on average are significantly older, more highly educated, and less likely to participate in the labor force (because of lower workforce participation by women). However, employed Syrians are more likely to work in high-skilled occupations—particularly in the sectors of educational services, health care, and social assistance, and retail trade—and have higher earnings than the overall foreign or native-born populations.
