What do you think about President Trump’s travel ban?

President Donald Trump signed an executive order that indefinitely bans entry of Syrian refugees into the United States, stops all refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days and bans non-U.S. citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) from entering for 90 days.

The order, which Trump said is needed to help protect Americans from terrorists, has spawned protests around the globe and confusion at John F. Kennedy International Airport and other U.S. entry points. A federal judge has partially blocked the order, preventing the government from deporting some detained travelers.
