Trump's order to ban Muslim visitors sparks wave of protests and confusion
Summary: Last Saturday, President Trump issued a surprising executive order. An executive order is put in place by a president and has the effect of a national law. Trump's order blocked people from seven Muslim nations from coming to the United States. It blocked people with passports from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Iraq and more. Those against the executive order moved rapidly to fight it. Protesters rallied to fight the ban. protesters chanted “Let them in!” and “Love, not hate, makes America great.”
Connection: This is connected to what we learned when immigrants built this country in how it is right now. It's against the american value to have people like this in our country.
Questions: Do you think this makes us more stronger or weaker to our country? Do you believe that they only doing this to Muslim people or they going to do it to Mexicans to? Is this fair that they separating families?
