In addition to temporarily suspending immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, President Donald Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order on immigration requires the government to collect information on the number of foreign nationals who have been charged with or convicted of terrorism-related offenses while in the United States.

Section 10 of the executive order — obtained by The New York Times — also requires the government to disclose how many foreign nationals have been radicalized after entry into the United States or who have provided material support to terror groups in other countries.
