Protests mount against US president Donald Trump‘s immigration order which are set to ban Muslims from countries affected by terror attacks entering the US.
The ban is likely to affect even those who acquired green cards legally leaving many under imminent threat from this action which is said to bring more hatred and loss of allies rather than more safe according to Reed Hastings~CEO Netflix.
“We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. ” Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg said.
President Trump should be focusing on togetherness to protect American values of freedom and opportunity rather than building hate and unnecessary threats to the thousands of innocent people living in the US.
Already seven countries have been affected by the Muslim ban which include Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Iraq and Libya.
Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Lebanon are excluded from the list despite the fact that they are said to have been involved in various attacks on Americans.
The late Muhammad Ali once said that terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorists.
The executive order bans all refugees for four months. No citizen of the seven Muslim countries allowed into US.
Multiple rulings block Trump’s executive order on travel and immigration temporarily and an emergency stay granted for those already in the US.
The world is reacting on Trump’s order on immigration with thousands protesting on the streets of US saying ” This is not who we are”.
Top Republicans including Senator John McCain have raised concerns on travel ban saying there were no consultations with the state.
