Twitter Explodes With #MuslimBan In Reaction To Trump’s Ban

Yesterday, President Trump issued a ban on Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. and put a hold on the entire refugee program for 120 days.

The order may not specifically say “Islam” or “Muslim,” but it does block anyone from Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Iran, Sudan, Syria, and Iraq—all of which are Muslim-dense countries—from entering the U.S. for 90 days.

As a result, many families could be separated as the ban could affect non-citizens currently living in the states on visas or green cards, or those residing in the states with green cards but have gone abroad while the ban is in effect.

In reaction, many celebrities and others have taken to Twitter to protest using the hashtag #MuslimBan.

UPDATE: Trump’s “Muslim Ban” temporarily blocked by U.S. District attorney Ann Donnelly following a petition put forth by the ACLU, as well as amid countless protests at airports across the U.S. The emergency stay halts all deportations, but it remains unclear if those detained will have to remain in detention until a more substantive ruling on the constitutionality of the ban is determined.
