Donald Trump faced fresh protests Monday over his ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries entering the United States, a backlash that poses an enormous test for his administration, reported AFP.
The measures, introduced just a week after he took office, have been criticized by allies, caused confusion among border guards and galvanized Democrats looking for a way to bash Trump.
Unlike 2011 when President Obama imposed a freeze over the processing of Iraqi refugees for six months, Trump is basically halting immigration from 7 countries!
When Jimmy Carter was forced to ban Iranian immigration in 1980, unless applicants could prove they were enemies of the Khomenei theocracy, it was a different time with different problems. We were in a real fight with student demonstrators who had taken some Embassy officials hostage.
