Donald Trump’s new order indefinitely blocks refugees from Muslim countries

The American President Donald Trump signed Friday an order banning especially the Syrian refugees in the hope that "radical Islamic terrorists" cannot get into the United States. "We don't want them here. We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who support our country and love deeply our people," he said during a signing ceremony at the Pentagon.

The order indefinitely blocks refugees from war-torn Syria from entering the U.S. and suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days while the administration determines which countries pose the least risk. It also caps total refugee admissions for fiscal year 2017 at 50,000 , which is less than half of the 110,000 previously proposed by former President Obama. The ban would also apply to seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq. Today the Facebook CEO called out the president for his unAmerican views that demonize immigrants. “Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump. We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat.We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help,” Mark Zuckerberg said.
