Donald Trump has just begun his atrocious policies and their implementation with the #MuslimBan. The USA President was in headlines due to his ban on the immigrants and refugees from seven major Muslim nations, however, it seems that his power show has just started and Pakistan is going to be one of the victims too.
Initially, Trump had stated that Pakistan is not being included in the list of ban. But as per White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus during an interview:
“You can point to other countries that have similar problems like Pakistan and others – perhaps we need to take it further. For now, immediate steps, pulling the Band-Aid off, is to do further vetting for people traveling in and out of those countries.”
President Donald Trump previously signed an executive order calling out for an immediate ban of the immigrants of the countries including; Somlia, Libya, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, and Syria. The ban was affected soon after the order was passed, creating problem for those who had just boarded flights from their countries or were on airport, as they were being ordered to deport immediately.
The entry ban has been announced for the duration of 90 days but it can last longer. Trump administration’s Chief of Staff while proving his stance had said:
“This was a promise that President Trump had made and it’s a promise that he’s going to keep. And he’s not willing to be wrong on this subject — we need to do our best to be vigilant and protect Americans.”
Prebius was questioned as to if the ban was extending to Muslim countries only, to which he said:
“This is not a Muslim ban. All this is identifying the seven countries — and the reason we chose those seven countries is those were the seven countries that both the Congress and the Obama administration identified as being the seven countries that were most identifiable with dangerous terrorism taking place in their country.”
Thus, from his staunch policies and extremist viewpoint, it is clear that whether it is Pakistan or any other Muslim nation, travelling to America will not be easy for the Muslims again.
