Passengers stopped from boarding planes to US as Trump′s travel bans go into effect

Several would-be passengers have been barred from boarding flights to the United States. A new US immigration ban will even apply to green card holders from seven Muslim-majority nations.




Five Iraqis and a Yemeni national were kept from boarding a flight from Cairo to New York on Saturday, despite all seven people having already obtained the necessary migration visas to enter the United States.

A source at Cairo airport said: "When an official at the JF Kennedy Airport was notified of their status, he issued an order barring them from entering the US."

The passengers were then escorted by a representative of the United Nations Refugee Agency, who reportedly informed them to check with the US embassies that had issued their visas. One of the Iraqis was later released and allowed into the United States, US media reported.

Later on Saturday, Dutch airline KLM said it had kept seven passengers from boarding a US-bound flight. Manel Vrijenhoek, a KLM spokesperson, said: "We would love to bring them there. That's not the problem. It's just that this is what the US sprang on the rest of the world - that these people are no longer welcome." The airline refused to specify which country the passengers were from or where they were flying from.

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday temporarily suspending refugee arrivals and imposing tough new controls on travelers from seven Muslim countries.

The countries affected are Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. A study from the US Cato Institute found that foreigners from those seven nations have killed zero Americans in terrorist attacks on US soil between 1975 and the end of 2015.

The order suspends admissions to the US from the selected countries for four months and also indefinitely bans arrivals of citizens from war-torn Syria.

The American Civil Liberties Union said on Saturday that it will sue the Trump administration over Friday's order

This is crazy...just when did Trump come into power that he's coming up with crazy bans that's going to end up having a catastrophic effect.
Imagine how stranded people are? Canadian citizens that have dual nationalities with one of "these" countries were also affected in the 90day ban.
A lot of the U S green card holders of these nationalities are also banned from re-entering into the states. imagine people who went on vacation and have made The states their country of livelihood are in this mess irrespective of where you visited.
Is it too late to get him out of there? Didn't Obama preach peace? I know the United states started "most" of the wars in the affected countries and even supplied them with ammunition ? So why turn your back on them now when everything don scatter?

Hmnnn, I am a christian but I don't feel good about this move. Religion is a very emotional affair and one has to be very careful with it. This move is capable of inciting unnecessary terrorist attack from people that has never even given it a thought.
I have no problem with you punishing an individual based on a crime they have committed but not to ban a whole 7 countries for doing nothing. This is a lazy man's approach. Let your law enforcement get to work and fish out the bad eggs, do a background check on every immigrant etc.
For some Nigerians/ Nigerians/ christians rejoicing. When he will implement deportation laws on you guys na so e go be. With your green card, na so them go gbalu una ugbo nwa mkpi.

Trouble Maker: those killings were not orchestrated by the countries mentioned above.
It will also be stupid for anyone to imply "all" Muslims. The trump approach is a lazy man's approach, if there are bad people in a group of people, fish them out and punish them. Don't go banning the whole Muslim states.

Who are the Niger Delta Militants? Do you know how many people they have killed? Should we ban the whole Niger Delta?
Who are the Bakassi boys? Should we ban the states where they operated?
Who is this Vampire that escaped in Imo state few days ago? Should we place a ban on the whole of Imo state indegines because of the action of one man?
Is it only Muslims that are capable of crime?????? All the serial Killers in America, how many of them were Muslims? Was it not even America that started the wars in the middle east? Were they not the ones that birth ed these terrorists and talibans? Go and think.

AGELESS T said...

You know I said it a few days ago that this Electoral college thing doesn't make sense and some people came for my jugular. It may not be totally done away with, but can be modified.

How sensible is it that the votes of less than 500 people put Trump there as against the votes of 60m+ people that wants hillary. How can that edge of 2m+ people be overlooked and termed inferior to the votes of less than 500? Hmmmm... Let's look on and expect more surprises. After all its a year of Surprises.

I love Trump more for this. All this people from Syria and Iran should go to Saudi Arabia or Dubai .They should go and bomb all those place when they want to do their evil mission

Anonymous said...

Leave this one. If he hated muslims he would be fighting with Saudi, Qatar, UAE but is he? No where are the terrorists from? Mostly KSA. Nigerians are as good as they are a nuisance in that america. Just wait and see what he will do to you all then come back and laugh

Trump should tread carefully before these countries form a coalition against his government. He can't win that battle trust me.

 TEMPORARY ban was for immigrants who were ALREADY Issued green cards and visas and were on transit BEFORE the executive order was signed. The executive order banning refugees and those 7 countries STILL STANDS. In fact, those people at the airport could still be detained if officials choose they just can't deport them until additional proceedings. The stay is also temporary so they could still eventually be deported. They also can't leave the country because regardless if you have a visas or green card and are from any of those countries in the executive order, you will not get back in. The order is effect and has already been signed. The courts can't touch the executive order. Only the Supreme Ct can and they won't. AGAIN, the order is STILL IN EFFECT AND THE TEMPORARY BAN ONLY APPLY TO THOSE WHO WERE IN TRANSIT TO THE US BEFORE IT WAS SIGNED.‎

Banned 7 Muslims countries, but did not ban the muslim countries where he has businesses.

Isn't there popular voted and electoral college votes?

I don't think the USA elect president by popular votes instead by electoral votes..

Go and read well and understand how they hold their elections and come to conclusion..

Trump is such an asshole. Why is Saudi Arabia not on the list? A country that nationals from there have committed the terrorist acts on the US. Oil,that's why. It's to ban countries whose citizens have no issues in the US. All your citizens who are committing heinous crimes everyday in the country,what will you do with them? Don't act like your country is void of crime and outsiders are the ones bringing in crime or committing them. Keep acting like America is Trump towers and signing things anyhow. Shebi the ACLU has succeeded in suing you and the Judge has decreed a cease and desist on any ban or deportation, u never see anything yet. Foolish man.

LOLLAH said...

Oh ok...Canadian citizens are exempted.
