Trump has been in office for 10 days. Wanting to honor campaign promises and make bold statements, Trump ensured that “Take out the Trash Friday” was just that: signing an executive order to ban refugees from 7 countries that his family does not do business with, yet excluding those coming from Afghanistan and Pakistan. The ban is for 90-120 days. Protestors have taken to the streets in DC and at major airports across the country. Some federal judges have ordered stays in order to release those who have been detained. The WH was forced to scale back, saying that green card holders won’t be barred.
