Trump's order banning refugees sparks approval, despair in Minnesota


January 30, 2017

The president’s move to restrict the flow of refugees to the United States was welcomed by his Minnesota supporters but widely condemned by others who urged caution in the treatment of people fleeing war.

The order suspends all refugee resettlement for four months to allow for a review of the screening process and bans Syrian refugees and any refugees after the first 50,000 per year until President Trump decides otherwise. In remarks from the Pentagon on Friday, Trump said the moves were necessary to prevent terrorists from entering the nation.
