While innocent immigrants and refugees are detained and chaos rules at airports, Donald Trump claims his ban is ‘going nicely.’ The President made his shocking remarks after people were seen loudly chanting ‘let them in!’ See pics and videos!
Donald Trump, 70, signed an executive order on Jan. 27 to bar refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States for at least 90 days, causing outrage. People from all over the country are livid, now protesting on behalf of the families of refugees, legal permanent residents and Ivy League students who were detained at airports. Iraqis who spent years dedicating their lives to protect American citizens were also denied access back into the country. Meanwhile, Donald claims it’s all “working very nicely.”
Now, a federal court has granted an emergency stay blocking the deportation of migrants detained at airports around the United States, meaning none can be sent back. This comes after chaos broke out at airports as migrants were stopped. Some non-American citizens also came to realize that they would no longer be allowed in the country which they considered home. Protests are still expected to take place at major airports in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Boston and Denver. Donald has been defending his vetting order, claiming, “It’s not a Muslim ban.”
A protest is being planned for tomorrow at the Atlanta airport because of the ban on Muslim refugees. https://t.co/aKwFaThsZb

Donald’s executive order also suspended the admission of all refugees for 120 days. His remarks came shortly after twelve refugees were detained at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. Several angry protesters flooded to the airport to show their support, chanting loudly, “let them in!” Hundreds of people were even carrying signs that read “welcome.” One Twitter user at JFK also shared a picture alongside the caption, “Lawyers drafting habeas petition in Terminal 1 at #JFK right now for Iranian and Yemeni detainees.”
Additional reports of people being stopped from entering the US or kicked off airplanes continue to surface, causing mayhem throughout the country. Seven migrants were also prevented from boarding a flight to New York from Cairo on Jan. 28. Hillary Clinton recently voiced her concern on the matter. “What he’s saying now is not only shameful and wrong, it’s dangerous,” she admitted on Late Night With Seth Meyers. People are clearly not taking this lightly!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Donald will lift the ban if people continue to protest? Let us know!
