Trump’s controversial remarks about a religion worshiped by 1.6 billion people worldwide endeared him further to his supporters, but those words are coming back to haunt him now that he’s president.
The various policies being put forth by the administration in the name of national security has put many people on edge. The new travel ban has not eased those tensions.
The new directive, which Trump signed on Monday morning, prohibits for 90 days people from Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya from entering the country and suspends the country’s refugee resettlement program for 120 days. Absent within the revised mandate is Iraq as one of the nations from where travel to the United States is blocked, the exclusion of religious minorities, and the banning of Syrian refugees specifically from entering the country.
