The order was blocked by a federal appeals court. The order was revised to avoid the tumult and protests that engulfed the nation’s airports after Mr. Trump signed his first immigration directive. The main revisions to the order was that one of the seven countries where taken off the list, exempts permanent residents and current visa holders, drop language offering preferential status to persecuted religious minorities, and reversed an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria, replacing it with a 120-day freeze that requires review and renewal. Not all of President’s Trump orders have been met with the same level of disdain, like all most other presidents, certain orders are liked by the public and others are not. Donald Trump inherited a much different country than George Washington, with a new set of problems, therefore understandably his orders are also different then Washington’s and any other presidents before
After the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency many changes have been occurring in the country. A continuous stream of executive orders signed by the President are causing extreme controversy. Executive Order: Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into The United States, the more moderate version of the “Muslim ban” that President Trump called for during his campaign was signed on Friday. Some people who were still in the air when Trump signed the order were detained or sent back to where they flew in from when they landed. This led to people being detained in airports sparking numerous protests at airports across the country, calling the order unconstitutional. On Saturday, a federal judge temporarily stayed the order, stopping people from being detained and deported from the country.
Fifty-two years after the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the racial tensions and geopolitical pressures within the United States continue to influence the policies of immigration. Since 1965, there has not been any major advancements in immigration policies, though with current President, Donald Trump, immigration policies are facing reforms. President Trump has followed closely with the ideals of past strict immigration policies in the America first attitude. Trump’s goals are to achieve three key objectives, that are, “to ensure safe and lawful admissions; defend the safety and security of our country; and protect American workers and taxpayers” (Office of the Press Secretary). With his newly proposed travel ban in effect, the country is eager to see how it will impact the United States and its relations with other countries.
Thousands of people are deported yearly from the United States. The purpose of deportation is to protect America and keep it safe. However, deportation tears families apart and ruins the well-being of migrant children. Deportation has developed and expanded over the years. It developed into something much more complex that affects many families in the United States yearly, but also affects the well-being of the United States Economy
On January 27th, 2017, president Trump signed an executive order dealing with immigration. The order took effect immediately and sparked anger and confusion across the nation. Dozens of international travelers were detained at airports across the country. Most of those detained were simply caught up in a government communication limbo. The order placed a temporary moratorium on immigration from seven countries Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
Deportation has been around for quite some time, but has only now become a controversial topic due to the high incarceration and deportation rate in the last decade. According to Tanya Maria Golash-Boza, sociology professor at UC Merced, and author of the book Deported Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor, and Global Capitalism, Obama and his administration deport more than 1000 immigrants a day. In the year 2012 the Obama administration established, “an all-time record high of more than 400,000 deportees” (Golash-Boza). What is more surprising is the fact that in 2012 more individuals were deported then the sum of all the individuals deported before the year 1997 (Golash-Boza). Mass migration of illegal immigrants began with the end of Keynesianism and the beginning of the neoliberalism. The ramifications of Neoliberalism has not only affected the us economy, but U.S. laws that directly influences the well-being of illegal immigrants.
On January 2017 the new president of the United States Donald Trump signed the order to ban immigrants, travelers, and even green card holders who were born in one of the following seven Middle Eastern countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, specifically Muslims and Syrians. According to what President Trump was saying, this order is made for the safety of the country, and to limit what is called the “Foreign Terrorism” inside the United States. People who agree with this law believe that banning believers of a specific faith and refugees entering the United State will make them safer. The law states that these seven countries’ citizens are not allowed to enter the United States for 90 days, starting from the day
“ My family and I have always dreamed of coming to the United States and accomplishing our dreams here. My family put in all of their investments and financial resources to allow me to come here and make things happen. We are treated like we’re terrorists, as if we want to cause trouble when above all we just want to make the United States a better place—contributing whether it’s through research, studying, or entrepreneurship,” Raya Bidshahri, a student at Boston University tells how President Trump’s Executive Order 13796 affects herself and her family (Lewin). Our Founding Fathers established the Constitution, in addition with the
The travel ban is an executive order which was put into place by President Donald Trump’s administration on January 27th, 2017. The order was put into place for our national security to “protect the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States.” This measure banned travel into the U.S. for 90 days from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. This obviously sparked an outcry from social media, which caused a divide among Americans. With a show of hands, how many of you think that the travel ban is actually a ban on Muslim refugees and that it is racist. Recent polls show that 57% of Americans favor the temporary ban while 33% are opposed to it, and 10% are still undecided. Racism, fascism, and Islamophobia; these words have all taunted supporters of President Trump and the travel ban. The one thing people don’t realize is that the travel ban isn’t banning Muslims from America. Who in the room can name the top 5 countries with the most Muslims. They are Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nigeria. Not one of these countries are listed in the ban. This ban is only for only ninety days, and is aimed at countries who have sent a large contingency of terrorists to the U.S. The countries selected have active terrorist training camps, and Trump is not the individual who selected the countries on the list. These countries are unstable, with no reliable vetting procedures. We shouldn’t admit people until they can meet our security screening standards.
Only a single month has elapsed since Donald Trump first fell into his comfy office chair at the biggest desk in the White House, and already he has stirred up a noteworthy level of controversy. Executive Order #13769, signed January 27th, has suspended admission of refugees for a number of months and flat-out denied entry to citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, and a number of other countries plagued with similar conflicts.
As of January 27th, President Donald J. Trump has signed executive order 13769, entitled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” in an attempt to mitigate the threat of Muslim terrorists entering the country. This entails blocking travelers from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, regardless of a valid non-diplomatic visa for a minimum of 90 days as well as prohibiting refugees from entering the United States for at least 120 days. A national out lash has been seen in response to the executive order, as both American and non-American citizens are being caught in the crossfire of the stipulations from the new order. As a result, international flyers are being held upon arrival in the U.S and prohibited from leaving unless
There are some issues in the world that go unnoticed by people if it does not pertain to them, and deportation is one of those issues. Deportation is the act of throwing a foreigner out of the country regardless if they are a resident or an intruder. Someone who is in a country they were not born is considered a foreigner and in the United States some foreigners have to deal with this unforgiving decision by the country they are deported from. Deportation commonly happens to parents who have young children and oftenly tears families apart. Deportation within families is a very punishing issue that a lot of people who were born in the United States will never know the harm in because they will never have to deal with it. When someone is deported
Deportation destroys families, detaches opportunities from individuals, and increases risks for the economy. Undocumented immigrants constantly live in fear of deportation within the United States of America. ("Deportation - FindLaw", 2017) These individuals understand that any slight encounter with immigration officials can lead to being incarcerated or even facing the process of deportation and being removed from the country and sent back to the country of origin. Deportation is often defined as the removal of unauthorized aliens for violation of various immigration or criminal laws. Deportation can lead these immigrants to lose all rights of entering the United States ever again. ("Deportation - FindLaw", 2017)
In the article, “U.S. Judge Bars Deportations Under Trump Travel Ban”, by Alicia A. Caldwell, President Donald Trump had banned travel between American and seven specific countries. These seven countries are Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya. Many people think this ban is discrimination against the Muslim community, but it is in a fact a ban against predominantly terrorist countries. This ban was put in place to protect and defend the lives of American people.
So again, I think that we’ve got to keep all of this into proportion. We had 109 people that were temporarily detained. They’re all in, but they were temporarily detained to make sure that the safety of the other 324 million Americans was put first. I don’t see how that’s a big problem. … And again look at how it worked when you talk about the 325,000 people, 109 were temporarily inconvenienced for the safety of us all - Sean Spicer. The ban was a 90-day ban that didn't allow the people from Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Iran to enter the America starting on March 16th, 2017. The travel ban was abruptly stopped after two federal judges called for an end to the ban one judge stated that it was religious discrimination. The book A Raisin in The Sun
