The Heat: Trump’s travel ban to the US

The Heat

President Trump signs travel ban President Trump issues Executive Order banning travel from certain parts of the world to the U.S.

Last Friday, United States president, Donald Trump, signed an executive order barring citizens from several Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S.

Seven countries are directly impacted: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and Sudan.

Citizens from these nations are restricted from entering the U.S. for 90 days. And any admission of refugees is suspended for 120 days.

The move, although supported by many Trump supporters, has been criticized by others -both in America and overseas -as racist and discriminatory.

And thousands protested over the new policy at airports throughout the weekend. Meanwhile, President Trump insists his motivation is America’s security.

And for the latest on the controversy, CGTN Jessica Stone reports from the White House.

Tonight’s panel takes a look at what these bans mean and how they may change foreign relations:

  • Lester Munson, vice president at the BGR consultancy group.  
  • Kamran Bokhari, a fellow at The George Washington University.
  • Yasmeen Alamiri, digital media journalist at CGTN.
