Trump’s order affects residents with “green card”

The president’s anti-immigration measures are already already affecting residents

Just hours after the execution of enforcement of the executive order of Donald Trump that prohibits the entry into the United States of Syrian refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations, immigration agents are already banning entry to and access to the country to the United States for persons from these countries, even those who have a residence permit known as a green card and other types of visas.

Earlier this morning two Iraqi citizens were detained by immigration services upon their arrival at New York’s JFK airport and it was reported that both had already approved asylum applications and had all the necessary papers and permits to enter the country.

A residence permit also known as the Green Card will be invalid if immigrants come from one of these seven countries: Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Iran. .

The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee has ensured that people who have already landed are being held at airports and informed that they will have to return to their destination, according to the NY Daily News.

“Many are concerned about their family, friends and classmates,” a representative of the committee told the New York newspaper. “Those who are already on the plane will not be able to enter.”

We recall that the executive order of Trump orders the suspension of all refugee reception for 120 days and also suspends for 90 days the granting of visas to all citizens of several Muslim-majority countries until “extreme scrutiny” processes are adopted.
