In January of 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order entitled: Protecting the Nation
From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States. This order effectively barred entry to the
United States for any foreign national of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering
the US as well as those from North Korea and Venezuela. Furthermore, the order halted all
refugee arrivals for 120 days and indefinitely stopped Syrian refugees from gaining access to
the United States. Critics of the order have suggested the ban targets Muslims unfairly while
others fear the restrictions will disrupt the flow of travel to the United States. Further
uncertainty over those who possess dual citizenship with one of the banned countries
complicates the issue.
Read some of the following articles pertaining to the US travel ban. These articles come from
a variety of sources that see the ban postively and negatively. In this era of misinformation, it
is important to consider both sides of an argument when formulating an opinion. This exercise
helps you make a more informed decision on where you stand and helps you consider the
implications of this kind of legislation on air travel.
