Muslim ban in the United States

When there are talks related to radical rules or the extremist mentality, the name of Donald Trump isn’t too far. It doesn’t amaze us now that he has been the spine behind the exec­u­tive order to block all refugees from entering the United States for a minimum period of four months. The order doesn’t restrict itself to just refugees as it also halts immi­gra­tion for 90 days from seven pre­dom­i­nately Muslim countries—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen—while the gov­ern­ment reviews its vet­ting procedures. Trump seemed too bold during the signing procedure at the Pen­tagon while quoting, “We want to ensure that we are not admit­ting into our country the very threats our sol­diers are fighting over­seas. We only want to admit those into our country who will sup­port our country and love deeply our people.”

 

The Amer­ican Civil Lib­er­ties Union wasn’t too impressed with this decision and con­demned the order by calling it a euphemism for dis­crim­i­na­tion against the Mus­lim community. They weren’t short in bringing a chal­lenge on behalf of two Iraqis detained at John F. Kennedy air­port in New York. U.S. fed­eral judges in Boston and New York,however,ruled that author­i­ties have no right to deport cit­i­zens who had already arrived in the U.S. with valid visas or who were in transit of the seven majority-​​Muslim coun­tries.

 

North­eastern University’s Law pro­fessor Rachel Rosen­bloom, an immi­gra­tion policy expert weighed in on Trump’s plan to keep “rad­ical Islamic ter­ror­ists” out of the United States and its poten­tial effects on refugees worldwide. The White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus was quick to respond that people from the affected coun­tries holding green cards won’t be pre­vented from returning to the U.S., adding a layer of con­fu­sion to Trump’s exec­u­tive order. Rachael opined, “The poli­cies that Pres­i­dent Trump has just announced will go down in the his­tory books as a moral failing of the same magnitude.”
