Muslim ban

A U.S Court has put President Trump travel ban on hold. The ban was put in place to ban travellers of predominantly seven countries that are coming to the United States with Visa, and also people with Green cards.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to remove the ban that was initially placed by a lower court, and now visitors that were initially suspended from those countries, can now travel to the United States.

Justice Department lawyers argued that the President within his constituted authority can ban entry to the United States, and the courts cannot second-guess his determination, as the step the president had taken was a prevention of terrorism from entering the United States.

The court also believes that Trump ban was based on religion, citing his campaign promise to ban all Muslims. The court said that the ban had hurt businesses, institutions and universities.

The arguments from both sides was done on Telephone, and broadcasted on cable networks, social media, and newspaper websites.

The decision by the court  have led to tearful reunion at the airport after the individuals from the seven countries, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are now given the freeway again to enter the United States.

The president, clearly not happy with the hearing from court took to Twitter and wrote, See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!


President Donald Trump is fighting back to reinstate the travel ban that was recently signed by his administration. The Trump administration appeal to reinstate the travel ban was rejected by the US Federal appeal court.


The executive order amidst other executive orders that Trump administration had signed has been called the most controversial, after it causes chaos at different US airports, and also a protest in the UK.


A Judge in Seattle has overturned the travel ban imposed by President Donald Trump. The ban affected citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States, after the president cited issues of National Security.


The State department has now said it will allow people with valid visas to enter the country, the department in a statement said;

We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas. Those individuals with visas that were not physically canceled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid.

The president furious with the judge, went on Twitter and denounce the judge that overturned his executive order, he tweeted;


People affected due to the travel ban have rushed to get themselves ticket to return to the United States, and airlines have also been instructed to lift people from the previously banned countries.


An Iraqi man, Mike Hager that had come forward yesterday and said that the new immigration ban by President Donald Trump had cost the life of his mother was said to have lied. 

The lies of the news was exposed by the leader of a mosque in Dearborn,Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, leader of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Centre, after the news went viral yesterday.

In the news that we published yesterday, Mike had said he had gone to Iraq with his mother with some of the their relatives, but while coming, his sick mother, niece and two nephews was blocked from flying to the United States, and he was only allowed because he was a citizen, while his mother and family members only had a green card.


After the news was posted, according to FOX 2Imam Al-Hussainy called the station and told them that the mother of Mike had died five days earlier before the executive order was signed. The Imam said;

That's true. The 22nd of January, his mom died, She did die but that was a couple weeks ago - before the ban.

Mike had contacted the Imam on January 19th, and told him he was going to meet his very sick mother, that had kidney diseases. She died there and on January 22nd, another mosque in the Detroit area had a prayer session for her.


A facebook post of Mike Hager also showed that he had posted about his mom death on Facebook, but his appearance on TV deleted the Facebook post, and won't pick up his home or work phone.

The Imam also said he had voted for Donald Trump, and approved of the travel plan, and said if that is what would make the country safer, the people should allowed him do it. 

The Imam called for peace and patience.

A woman had died after she was denied entry to the United States, as she was originally from Iraq. The woman according to her son had only died because the immigration denied the woman from entering the United States because of new President Trump Muslim ban.

Mike Hager, an Iraq and a local business owner in Michigan, fled Iraq during the Gulf war, he later returned during the Iraq war, and worked alongside United States Marines and Army forces as an interpreter and cultural advisor, and also survived being shot in the back while serving.


Mike was returning to the United States with his family, including his sick mother that had lived in the United States since 1995, but while at the Iraq airport, Mike was allowed to go through immigration because he was an American citizen, but his mother, a green card holder was denied entry.

His mum, Naimma, 75, was denied entry after 20 years living in the United States. Mike said;

The immigration told us that the President of the United States put an order right now - you guys cannot go.

I was just shocked. I had to put my mom back on the wheelchair and take her back and call the ambulance and she was very very upset. She knew right there if we send her back to the hospital she's going to pass away - she's not going to make it.

Naimma died in Iraq, and Mike Hager is blaming the death on Donald Trump. He said;

I really believe this in my heart: if they would have let us in, my mom - she would have made it and she would have been sitting right here next to me,

She's gone because of him.

His niece, and two nephews are still stuck in Iraq, and he has no idea when they would be allowed back to the United States, and he also said he is fearful of his own status at the moment, even though he is American.

One of Donald Trump executive order has raised different protests from different parts of the country. The temporary ban on immigration for seven different countries stops people coming either as refugees, or green card holders of the United States.

After much disagreement with the ban, the White House has now explained the executive order and have asked that people with the Green card from the country will not be banned from entering the country.


While speaking to the on NBC's "Meet the press," the White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus defended the immigration ban from Muslim-majority country,he said;

 If you're an American citizen travelling back and forth to Libya, you are likely to be subjected to further questioning when you come into an airport. There is discretionary authority that a custom and border patrol agent has when they suspect that someone is up to no good when they travel back and forth to Libya or Yemen.

Priebus also said that the ban will not affect green card holders going forward, unless the traveller is considered suspicious by border officials.

General John Kelly, the secretary of homeland security who just received briefing on the travel ban on green card holders issued his own statement on Saturday. He promised to protect the rights of Green card holders by issuing a waiver that will allow them into the country, unless they are considered a threat to national security.

In applying the provisions of the president's executive order, I hereby deem the entry of lawful permanent residents to be in the national interest. Accordingly, absent the receipt of significant derogatory information indicating a serious threat to public safety and welfare, lawful permanent resident status will be a dispositive factor in our case-by-case determinations.


The US president, Donald Trump has said that Christians seeking refugee status in the United States will be given priority status than the Muslims.


While speaking to the Christian Broadcasting Network, Donald Trump said it was impossible, or tough for Christians to enter the United States, while the Muslim were given a quick pass. Donald Trump said;

If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair -- everybody was persecuted, in all fairness -- but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.

The president did not give evidence for his accusation, and why the Department of Homeland Security and State Department would have given Muslims quick pass to the United states than the Christians. According to a non-partisan Pew research centre, 99% of those that were admitted into the USA were Muslims, with only 1% to be Christians.

The CIA World fact book said that 87% of Syrians are Muslims, and 10% are Christians.



A week into his presidency, President Donald Trump signed a controversial executive order that ban 7 Muslim countries from entering the US. The ban has left Muslims coming into the US stranded at the airport, while some have been detained.

A lot of Americans, and A-list Hollywood celebrities have taken to Twitter to speak against the #Muslimban in the country. Some of the celebrities includes Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Michael Moore, George Takei and many more. 

Here are some of the tweets from the celebrities:





Also, Donald Trump 2016 rival opponent, Hillary Clinton also tweeted her displeasure on the ban, writing;


French foreign minister, Manuel Valls, has said the country is looking into the ban of foreign financing of mosques as it will reshape its counter-extremism strategy following a fresh wave of terror attacks.


While speaking to le Monde, Valls said;

There needs to be a thorough review to form a new relationship with French Islam. We live in a changed era and we must change our behaviour. This is a revolution in our security culture…the fight against radicalisation will be the task of a generation.

Valls said that the recent killing of the priest by ISIS supporter and the Nice attack shows that France is at war, and there would be more atrocities, but France will win because it have its own strategy.

This war, which does not only concern France, will be long and we will see more attacks. But we will win, because France has a strategy to win this war. First we must crush the external enemy.

A lot of criticism has been recently faced by the French government for failing to prevent the atrocities. Intelligence officials also claimed that they are under-resourced to deal with the various threats, especially monitoring an individual, and an individual would need at least officers watching them.
