Trump Executive Order Immigration Bans for Muslims Countries

Trump exclusive orders on Immigration

President Trump signed orders that banned immigration of Muslims from seven countries including  Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. 

They have banned all refugee admission for 120 days and all Syrian refugees indefinitely. This order is criticized as well as praised by people. Furthermore, this order also witnessed a lot of protest at different airports around the country by the people who suffer from  this.

Order; a cause of panic?

The order objectified three groups: refugees from any country who are blocked from entering the United States for the next 120 days; refugees from Syria and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries who are barred from entering the United States for at least 90 days.

Procedure for Order Implementation

The order clarifies little on enforcement, leaving customs and border officials appearing to improvise.

Several federal courts have already proscribed expulsions under the ban and have ordered that individuals detained at airports or at the border have access to lawyers. But there have been reports of customs and border officials declining to meet the terms.

Legality of Order

For judges to issue emergency stays, like those that have already emerged, they must determine that there is a high likelihood that the legal challenge will succeed — meaning that they think the ban is probably legally incomplete, at least when applied to people who have already reached the United States and are embracing valid papers.

Immigration ban or Muslim ban?

The order does not overtly target Muslims but rather public of seven Muslim-majority countries, which also contain non-Muslim minorities. However, there is an increasing distrust that the order grew out of Mr. Trump’s campaign promise of a total and complete blackout of Muslims entering the United States.

Obama’s reaction

This order is also criticized by ex- President Barack Obama. Diplomats who were against ban were appreciated by Mr. Obama, who criticized the executive order and authorized the protests against it, and Ms. Yates, who ordered the Justice Department not to defend the executive order in court. She said she did not believe the order to be lawful.

Iran’s response

Iran, one of the countries whose citizens were banned, criticized Trump’s immigration order and considered it as an “insult” and a “gift to extremists” and said it was considering its response. In return Iran banned the American immigrants from entering into the Iran.

Is the executive order legally binding? 

According to the New York Times, the “Muslim ban” order is illegal. It says that Mr. Trump’s travel ban is the violation of law and it is illegal.

What happens next?

Opponents of this ban say that they will start the legal challenge against it. They also argued that the order’s special treatment of Christians over Muslims violates the first amendment on freedom of religion.

The executive order was condemned by different foreign governments, including Turkey, Germany and Iran .Different critics and analysts say that this order will harm Trump and its reputation with the legal challenge and it has caused a split in Republican ranks.
