THE BARBARIC BAN
Recently, immigrants living in or traveling into the U.S. have been deported back to their original countries due to the present immigration ban. The immigration ban prohibits illegal immigrants from staying in the country, but has also affected a minority of legal immigrants. Even those who acquire existing visas or green cards and have departed from the country for a temporary period have been held back from entering the country. CNN states “travelers who fit the bans criteria and were already in the air headed for the United States on Friday afternoon when president Trump signed the executive order that stopped and detained upon all arrivals at U.S. airports.” This shows the ban is unfair to not only immigrants traveling into the country but also to U.S. citizens that are being held back as well. The immigration ban has not only affected traveling, but immigrants and their families. It has brought a negative spread of chaos and confusion within the United States, and it has left families separated and legal immigrants traveling, left outside of the country. The immigration ban is not ideal and is not fair to the immigrants suffering from it.
A POSITIVE POLICY
The violating attempt to keep immigrants out of the country has been handled negatively from the start. Since the beginning, congress and most court officials have not approved of the immigration ban, and neither has the majority of the country. It is stereotypical to those countries in which president Trump says are prone to terrorism throughout the recent history to the United States. The ban focuses on the 6 major Muslim countries (Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia) and Mexico. The ban has also violated the purpose of owning a visa or green card because those immigrants who acquire these items and are out of the country are not being allowed back in. President Trump was later on divulged by the human rights organizations and advocacy groups for instituting a policy that contrasts off of U.S. values and as an overall the view towards the United States as a free country. Since the sign of the ban, the outcomes have only been conspicuous as negative, the ban is an over stereotype and is discriminatory to those immigrants who travel outside of the country and are allowed back in, the families being separated, and to the minority of legal immigrants that are still facing risks of deportation.
