Washington, January 29: While media and his political opponents are clamorously venting their anger against US Prez Donald Trump, its has been clarified that the Immigration Ban is not a ‘Muslim Ban' as it is propagated.
Trump on Sunday clarified that his immigration order that bans travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries is not a ban on Muslims.
“It’s not a Muslim ban, but we are totally prepared,” Trump told reporters after he signed three more executive orders related to lobbying ban, plan to defeat ISIS and reorganisation of National Security Council.
“It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over,” Trump told reporters amidst widespread protests in the US.
President Trump yesterday ordered banned the entry of Syrian refugees until further notice, as part of new measures to “keep radical Islamic terrorists” out of America. The countries impacted are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.
Notably, a federal judge in Brooklyn issued an emergency stay Saturday night against President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigration from certain predominantly Muslim countries, temporarily allowing people who have landed in the United States with a valid visa to remain.
The ruling protects from deportation refugees or visa holders who were detained at American airports since the signing of immigration ban. It also protects those in transit when the emergency ruling was filed.
The lawsuit was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of two men detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. The men were subsequently released. Cody Wofsy, a lawyer with the ACLU, told Mother Jones he'd worked through the night with a large group of attorneys on Friday to write the brief that challenged the executive order.
