Refugees and other foreign nationals at airports have understandably drawn the attention of those opposed to President Trump's travel bans. The real effect of those bans, however, extends well beyond the airports. Also, the full extent of the orders has yet to be determined. This means that for those opposed to the bans, the fight has just begun.
On January 27, 2017, Donald Trump issued an executive order regarding immigration and national security. The order temporarily halts all entries of noncitizens from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen into the United States for 90 days. The government will then develop new permanent policies that may prohibit individuals from certain countries from entering the United States; however, as of now, it is unclear exactly what these policies will look like and which countries they will affect.
