Trump Refugee Ban Sparks Nationwide Protests

On Friday, January 27, President Donald Trump signed an executive order suspending immigration from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen, all majority-Muslim nations, for 90 days, including refugees and legal green card holders trying to get back into the U.S. Already, people trying to enter the country have been detained in airports, sparking massive protests throughout the country, including at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Orlando International Airport, and Miami Airport.

One Iranian and two Syrian nationals were held at Orlando International Airport but were finally released after seven hours. A legal permanent resident was also detained after returning from a cruise in Fort Lauderdale. Angry protesters have flocked to airports all over the nation to express their outrage over the new policy, which has intensified fears among all immigrants, both legal and undocumented.

As the Miami Herald reports, immigration questions and concerns are being deferred to the Miami office for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Miami-area schools, including the University of Miami, are also grappling with how the order will impact students and faculty.
