Donald Trump’s ban on entry of Muslims in USA – All you need to know

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

In a decision of far-reaching implications, US President elect Donald Trump has made it clear that he will ban refugee immigration into the United States from some Middle Eastern and African countries. These countries as media suggests are all Muslim majority nations and belong to Middle East and North Africa.

If reports are to be believed, the proposed ban on entry of people from these nations, will ensure that no visas will be issued to the people of these Middle Eastern nations. The people from seven nations are going to be denied visas include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. This seems to be a very toned down version of the proposed ban that Donald Trump was talking while campaigning in the presidential elections. He had talked of blanked ban on Muslims’ entry in the US.

Shahed Amanullah, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, while writing in ViewsHeadlines says, “What this policy does do is give people with simplistic views about Islam’s link to terror a false sense of security, and stokes additional hatred toward millions who have nothing to do with terrorism. This ban fuels xenophobia for domestic political gain while disguised as counterterrorism policy”.

He goes on to add, “The Obama administration already had the most “extreme vetting” of refugees on earth, lasting up to 2 years, and there have been no cases that I know of of vetted refugees engaging in acts of terror. And every year we educate the best and brightest from these countries (upwards of 50,000 students from Iran alone), which helps build bridges between our countries, aligns our cultures and values, brings in millions in revenue for our universities, provides the basis for deep economic ties, and more. These gains, which benefit both sides, are now in jeopardy”.

The ban on entry of nationals from seven Muslim nations is going to serve his rhetoric while not impacting most Muslim nations with whom US has business interest. It is also going to raise Islamophobia to an all new level across the US. A Reuters report suggests that an executive order will stop visas from being issued to immigrants from those countries. In order for that to happen, the Reuters report stated that Trump would likely “instruct the State Department to stop issuing visas to people from those nations,” the news outlet attributed to sources familiar with the process.
