A major change has come across in U.S.A after Donald Trump has officially taken charge of the President’s Office.
The US president’s order is now barring travellers and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries gaining entry into the US namely Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
Within minutes of Donald Trump signing his executive order banning the entry of nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries, the horror stories started coming through. Sudanese friends and relatives, some of whom had lived their entire lives in the United States, some who were in the air as the order was signed, found themselves prevented from entering the country.
What’s more shocking is that British Citizen holding dual citizenship with above mentioned 7 countries are being stopped to enter the American country for the coming 90 days.
The US State Department said: “Travellers who have nationality or dual nationality of one of these countries will not be permitted for 90 days to enter the United States or be issued an immigrant or non-immigrant visa.
“Those nationals or dual nationals holding valid immigrant or non-immigrant visas will not be permitted to enter the United States during this period. Visa interviews will generally not be scheduled for nationals of these countries during this period.”
Nadhim Zahawi, the MP for Stratford-on-Avon who was born in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, said he feared he would be caught up in the ban.
I’m a British citizen & so proud to have been welcomed to this country. Sad to hear ill be banned from the USA based on my country of birth

Even as several foreign governments condemned the decision, Mrs Theresa May, who has sought to develop close ties with Mr Trump, avoided criticising the president’s actions.
Mrs May had twice refused to publicly condemn Mr Trump’s ban on refugees from those seven countries earlier in the day during a press conference in Turkey.
After being asked three times if she condemned the decision to ban families fleeing slaughter in war zones, Mrs May said: “The United States is responsible for the United States’ policy on refugees.”
This news came as a shocker to many and many people have suffered and became affected due to this new development. Even people hailing from U.S have suffered due to this.
A lady staying in U.S from past 7 years got affected by the changes in the immigration policy just because she hails from Iran and shockingly she went to Iran to spend her holidays and on her return journey she was deported off the plane.

As per the live updates received now, Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said the ban would no longer apply to green-card holders.
Keep Praying Guys.
