Trump planning to prioritize persecuted christians applying for refugee status

Reaction to the executive order has been swift and varied, from thousands of protesters across the U.S.to politicians and global governments.

Brinkema's temporary restraining order also requires the agency to allow those individuals to speak with lawyers, according to the Legal Aid and Justice Center in Virginia, which provides representation to low-income individuals.

Legal residents who have a green card and are now in the U.S. should meet a consular officer before leaving the country, a White House official said. "I don't think I have felt discriminated since little school when the kids were very cruel, as a young boy coming from Iraq of Kurdish origin", he told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

Under an executive order that Trump signed in the presence of the news media, every political appointee joining the executive branch on or after January 20 - the day Trump took office - must agree to the lobbying bans. "It is not on its face a Muslim ban", he said.

The Tehran government vowed to respond in kind to the USA ban on visitors from Iran, but on Sunday Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter that Americans who already hold Iranian visas can enter the country. The countries were identified as having a terrorist organisation with a significant presence in the area, or the country was deemed a "safe haven" for terrorists. The White House would not confirm or deny the authenticity of the orders, and White House officials did not respond to requests for comment about the drafts on Monday and Tuesday.

"The Obama administration put these first and foremost", he said on ABC's "This Week". "No judge can look at the order and analyze it as a Muslim ban because the vast majority of Muslims around the world are not affected by the limitations placed on these seven countries".

"This is nothing new", Spicer said.

American President Donald Trump has started to fulfill the promises which he had given in the election campaign.

Before Trump's executive order was signed, some people were eligible to skip an in-person interview if they met a variety of requirements. Trump also says that Obama later singled out the same seven nations as "countries of concern".

When asked by a reporter about Trump's ban during a joint news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May in Ankara, Yildirim said: "Regional issues can not be solved by closing the doors on people".

"Priebus also attempted to clarify the order, saying it doesn't affect green card holders".

Kenya, al-Shabab each claims to kill scores
In response, the Kenyan military spokesperson indicated that claims from the group were false as the operation was still ongoing. KDF spokesman Paul Njuguna denied the Shabaab claims and said Kenyan soldiers had fought back, killing numerous Islamists.

Trump has suspended due process for Muslims
Two of the interpreters he employed were executed by Iraqi militia, he added. "The guy was fearless". All six were told they could not board EgyptAir Flight 985 to Kennedy Airport.

Safety Test Results on Electric Cars
The group recently gave the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius Prime its top scores, Top Safety Pick Plus, to the two plug in hybrids. BMW AG's i3 electric vehicle also failed to earn the Top Safety Pick award due to inadequate headlights and seat restraints.

"We don't want them here".

"In the meantime, we are committed to working to ensure that as few people as possible suffer from the chaotic situation that it has created", the statement said. "H$3 e's aiming at USA citizen kids who have an undocumented parent, and depending how broad the reach of his order, he could deport kids who have received reduced lunches in school. That is what we're doing", Emanuel said.

The Department of Homeland Security said that the order also barred green card holders from those countries from re-entering the US.

One Google employee of Iranian descent barely made it back to the United States before the ban went into effect, and the company said more than 100 of its workers were affected.

In the meantime, the hawkish US President has suspended the entire US refugee programme for as many as 120 days.

All refugees are barred from entering the United States, regardless of nationality, for 120 days.

A federal judge temporarily blocked part of the order Saturday, following protests at several airports and the filing of a lawsuit by two Iraqi men who had valid visas but were detained in NY. Many have accused the administration of rushing to implement the changes, resulting in panic and confusion at the nation's airports.

Thousands of demonstrators gathered at the global terminal of Chicago's O'Hare airport on Saturday night to protest against the order.

Meanwhile, large crowds of protesters turned out at airports around the country to denounce the new President's ban, The New York times reported.

But some members of the parliament said Iraq should retaliate with similar measures against the United States. The order says they are "solely enforceable" by the USA government "by any legally available means", including debarment proceeding within any affected executive branch agency, or civil court proceedings.

Congress has repeatedly enacted laws to prevent the president from excluding people based on ideology, he said, and Section 212 of the current immigration law code places clear prohibitions excluding immigrants based on their beliefs.
