President Trump is set to establish a “National Vetting Center” on Tuesday to improve the vetting process of individuals coming into the United States, according to a White House daily schedule.
The national security memorandum Trump plans to sign will give the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other government agencies a six-month deadline to establish the center, CNN reported Monday.
Two administration officials told the news outlet that the center would aim to improve how different federal agencies share information about vetting, as well as streamline the process.
It is unclear how the center will change how immigrants and travelers coming onto American soil will be vetted.
A board of governors, which will include Cabinet members, is also expected to oversee the panel.
Trump has repeatedly called for “extreme vetting” of those entering the U.S. His travel ban, which the Supreme Court has agreed to review, has been one of his most controversial and challenged policies.
