Between January 27 and February 4 last year, 1, 903 travelers were stopped for a second inspection by Customs and Border Patrol following President Trump's executive order banning travelers from 7 Muslim-majority nations, according to newly released data from CBP. 1,457 of them were U.S. residents and at least 134 turned around and left the country, Buzzfeed reported.
