Fallout from Trump's immigration ban

Trump's order temporarily bars visas for people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia. Refugee resettlements are suspended for 120 days, and refugees from Syria are barred indefinitely. The order led to people being kept off U.S.-bound planes, confusion and protests at U.S. airports and criticism from the heads of technology companies.

QuoteIt's not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It's working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.— Trump to reporters in the Oval Office today
