Refugee Ban in the US

Saloni Mundra,

White House, TN, United States

Donald Trump made the most indefensible promise of his presidential campaign a reality, he suspended all refugee admissions from seven Muslim nations to the US for 120 days. This decision has come as a huge shock to the entire world.  Trump's order sparked an immediate backlash and sowed chaos and outrage, with travelers getting detained at airports, panicked families searching for relatives and protestors taking to the streets.
These protests can be seen around the globe, with 4 lakh signing a petition to block Trump’s UK visit. When Attorney General Sally Yates defied the President on the refugee ban, she was fired with the White House stating that she had ‘betrayed the Department of Justice’.
