Travel Ban: Nicole, Zhuorui, Lina

President Trump's Travel Ban

On January 27th president Trump instituted a travel ban. The ban prevents citizens of seven countries in the Middle East and Africa from entering the U.S. President Trump states that the ban is to protect the U.S. from terror attacks. Many people got stranded in airports, or were detained by the police. Families and loved ones were separated from each other.
