The Supreme Court reinstated part of President Trump's travel ban last week — even barring grandparents of people already in the US. A group of Iranians — and their grannies — are hitting back, on Instagram.
The US launched its first direct strike on the Syrian regime Friday morning local time after a suspected Damascus-ordered chemical attack killed at least 70 people Tuesday in the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun. The attack inspired US President Donald Trump to bomb a Syrian airfield. But will it change his thinking about Syrian refugees?
The ruling means a nationwide freeze on enforcement of section two of the order, banning entry by nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days. It also halts section six, which would have suspended the US refugee admissions program for 120 days.
President Donald Trump's first executive order temporarily restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and banning refugees was blocked in federal court. His revised order is narrower in scope, but will his administration expand on it in coming months?
President Trump's plans for a wall between Mexico and the United States and a travel ban against citizens from six Muslim-majority countries may not be the best way to fix the country's immigration laws. Immigration law professor David Martin, who helped shape immigration policy under the Clinton and Obama administrations, thinks Trump proposals are not the solution.
An earlier order signed one week after Trump took office barred entry to all refugees for 120 days, and to all citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days. Refugees from Syria were barred indefinitely. Federal courts blocked that order following worldwide outrage and protests.
President Donald Trump emphasized the importance of supporting the victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants in his address to Congress. Yet many immigrants feel his agenda unfairly portrays them as security threats.
The executive order that Donald Trump signed on Friday has been challenged in courts. At Los Angeles International Airport, attorneys are trying to help valid visa holders and legal permanent residents who are still being detained and subject to special screening.
On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that sparked chaos and confusion throughout the US, and parts of the world. It limits who can enter the US from seven Muslim-majority countries — in the name of "extreme vetting." Thousands of people were caught up in the aftermath.
President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily bans Iraqis from entering the US — including men like Ahmed Hameed, who served for three years as a translator for the US army. While vets apply political pressure on the administration and the Pentagon compiles a list of former Iraqi partners, Hameed waits, fearful and hopeful.
A 19-year-old Iraqi Kurd and his family were prevented from coming to the US by President Donald Trump's immigration order. Now they are cleared for entry, and as the family regroups, friends and strangers in America are rallying to their support.
