Despite only being signed a matter of hours ago, President Trump’s executive order banning US entry for refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries is already having life-changing consequences.

There are multiple reports of refugees being detained or turned away at American airports.

Even green-card holders, legal permanent US residents, are being denied entry back into the country.

The ban on those from Syria is indefinite while that affecting Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen will last 90 days.

There have been no fatal terror attacks in U.S. by immigrants from these countries.
