Donald Trump's spokesman (Sean Spicer) made waves on Monday, January 30 when he claimed that detaining small children and keeping them away from their parents is necessary and will help "keep America safe." He scoffed at the thought that, at the very least, they could keep the refugee children with their parents during questioning.

Muslim ban is on everyone's mind

During Spicer's first press conference following the president's executive order which prevented all refugees from entering the United States from seven countries that are mostly Muslim, he defended Trump's actions and said that it is necessary to keep America safe.

Over the weekend, a 5-year-old boy from Iran was detained and kept from his mother for hours. Spicer stood by the decision and claims it was "necessary for national security." According to US Uncut, Spicer stated: “The president recognizes that it is his duty and obligation to keep this country safe. [T]o assume that just because of someone’s age or gender or whatever that they don’t pose a threat would be misguided and wrong."

The ban included residents of the U.S.A.

The executive order included residents of the United States. They were questioned, drilled, and separated from their children.

They were threatened that they might not be able to enter this country and faced with the possibility of being sent to detention camps while they wait for the Department of Immigration to decide their fate.

Just for a moment, think about this: these are people that have built a life here in the States. They work here. They pay taxes here. But, now that Trump is running the country, they are not welcomed here. Just imagine how you'd feel if that was you! Many people feel strongly about the executive order, and for a good reason. It is scary to think that he can remove individuals who have worked hard to come to America the legal way. If he can do this, none of us are safe, not even U.S. citizens.

Donald Trump claims that the ban did not include those with a current green card. However, the airport protesters reported that that was not true.

How do you feel about the executive order? Do you support Donald Trump's ban, knowing that it allegedly includes U.S. residents, too? #MuslimBan #News #Politics
