The “Muslim Ban” originated from an executive order by the United States President which prevents citizens of several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Another order that was implemented was the suspension of the nations refugee system. The President says that these orders will “keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the US” but, this action has triggered a very heated response from US citizens all over the country. Hundreds of people went to major airports to protest this order and to hopefully get the ones that were held up in TSA to get released. This even got lawyers to come out to try to defend these people by trying to get the TSA to let them go since the bill was signed while they were in the air. This has affected many people such as students and teachers who are from the seven Islamic countries that are banned and who will not be able to come back to the United States for school or work. This bill is heavily debated as it goes against Freedom of Religion and banning these refugees and immigrants although this country was built by them.
