On March 6th, President Trump released an Executive Order on immigration and travel. This Executive Order, titled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States, is comprised of 16 sections. This order infamously garnered plenty of news attention for a number of reasons, most prominently highlighted in the first section.
In the order, he calls for an immediate, 90-day suspension of entry from the following counties: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. These countries were chosen due to the administration’s belief they pose a certain threat on the terroristic level, and thus are banned from entry into the United States. One must display close familial relationships to United States citizens in order to be granted the right to stay.
This sparked an outrage across the nation, as many people feel a travel ban is inherently unconstitutional and un-American. It also caused plenty of chaos for the fact that many were surprised by the order and met with the news while at the airport--leaving countless people stranded with no idea of where they stand and how to handle their immigration concerns.
Sparking protests across the country, this travel ban has been met with great resistance, through it does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
