News reaching us shows that Muslims have been barred from flying to United States, as those who successfully landed at the airports are been detained.
Citizens from Countries like Iran and Iraq scheduling to visit the United States were not permitted to board on Saturday after US President Trump gave a standing order to restrict arrivals from over seven Islamic countries. Iran kicked against the “insulting” ban saying they won’t just fold their hands and watch but would reciprocate.
This started on Friday when Trump signed a far-reaching executive order to stop the arrival of refugees and impose tough new controls on travelers from the Islamic countries like Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. His actions have sparked pervasive international criticism. Those coming from the Middle East were not allowed to board the US-bound planes. Those unfortunate ones who already took off before Trump signed the executive order were held and detained on arrival.

Report from The New York Times reveals that, In Tehran, two travel agencies told AFP that they were instructed by, Turkish Airlines, Emirates and Etihad Airways not to issue US tickets or give way for Iranians holding American visas to board US-bound flights. A student studying in California said she can no longer return to school because she is from Iran and that her ticket has been cancelled due to the new developments. “I had a ticket for Turkish Airlines on February 4, but it has been cancelled,” the girl, who wished to remain anonymous, told AFP in Tehran.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani so far has criticised the US president Trump, saying that now was “the wrong time to build walls between nations”. Iran’s foreign ministry said it would “respond in kind after the insulting decision of the United States concerning Iranian nationals” until the new laws are lifted. It said the laws were “illegal, illogical, divisive and negates international rules”. over a million Iranians resides in the United States.
In Khartoum, the Sudanese foreign minister has expressed its regret at the US ban saying it will do no good while in Egypt, a country which was excluded in the new restrictions, an Iraqi couple and their two children were told they could not board an Egypt-Air flight from Cairo to New York. Airport officials disclosed that they will not be able to board reasons being that they are also Iraqi citizens. Reports from The New York Times reveals that two Iraqi refugees were detained on arriving at John F. Kennedy airport few hours after Trump gave the standing order.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other advocacy groups filed a legal challenge against Trump’s order. Lawyers representing the detained Iraqis also filed a court appeal for their release, saying they were being unlawfully detained because the already was on air before the order was instructed. The United Nations responding to the law urged Donald Trump to maintain his country’s long tradition of welcoming refugees and to guarantee their equal treatment, not minding the color, nationality, faith or believe. French President Francois Hollande reacted to Trumps restrictions by saying Europe must have a positive response to Trump, and that when he refuses the arrival of refugees, while Europe has done its duty, we have to respond. Hollande was due to speak with Trump later Saturday. In Lebanon, Syrian refugees trying to get to makeshift camps bemoaned their fate. “What on earth have the Syrian people done to Trump to deserve this ill treatment?” asked Abu Mahmoud al-Ghol, at one informal camp in the Marj area. “And to think it’s a democratic country doing it,” the 44-year-old said. Refugees barred almost six years of war in Syria have driven almost everyone from their homes, with many fleeing out of the country and dreaming of new lives in the West. Trump’s executive order particularly says no visas will be issued for 90 days to migrants or visitors from the seven Muslim-majority countries. It also bars Syrian refugees from the United States until further notice; His order automatically suspends the entire US refugee resettlement programme, pending when harsh new vetting rules are established. Qatar Airways, which flies to around 15 American cities, said it would stand by the new policy, saying nevertheless passengers who have their proper documentation may be able to fly. The new message on its website reveals that citizens of the seven barred countries could travel to the US if they have permanent residency there. Government officials and their immediate family are off the hook from the travel restrictions together with representatives of international organisations. Trump’s action has also frustrated one of Iran’s most admired actresses, Taraneh Alidoosti who stars in the Oscar-nominated “The Salesman”. She said she would stay away from next month’s Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. “Trump’s visa ban for Iranians is racist,” she tweeted. “Whether this will consist of cultural event or tour, I won’t be present at the #AcademyAwards 2017.”
