More Than 4,300 Refugees Have Arrived In The US Since Judge Blocked Trump's Travel Ban
by Alex Pfeiffer
More than 4,300 refugees that would have been blocked by President Trump's travel ban have resettled in the U.S. since a federal judge in Washington stopped the executive order.
President Trump's executive order signed in late January stopped refugee entry across the board for 120 days, eliminated refugee entry from Syria indefinitely, and blocked the entry of all immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Syria).
On Feb. 3, U.S. District Judge James L. Robart ruled that the order was unconstitutional and this decision was later upheld by an appeals court. President Trump subsequently expressed dismay saying that the country's safety is at risk due to the court's decision.
