Migrants Fleeing War Will Suffer from Trump’s Refugee Ban–meanwhile Hawaii Challenges New Muslim Ban


Hawaii Challenges Trump’s Refugee & Muslim Ban

HEADLINES MAR 09, 2017

President Trump’s newly revised ban on refugees and travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is facing its first legal challenge. A federal judge in Hawaii will hear a case brought by the state’s attorney general. It charges Trump’s travel ban violates religious freedoms protected by the Hawaiian and U.S. constitutions. The suit also claims the ban would hurt Hawaii’s economy and that it would tear apart families. The ban is set to go into effect on March 16. It prohibits travel for 90 days for residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It also bans all refugees from resettling in the U.S. for at least four months.

The United Nations high commissioner for refugees is warning that President Trump’s travel ban will compound the misery of migrants fleeing war, poverty and persecution. This is U.N. spokesperson Farhan Haq.

Farhan Haq: “UNHCR has underscored that refugees are ordinary people forced to flee war, violence and persecution in their home countries, and are in urgent need of life-saving assistance and protection. Commenting on the executive order, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees, Filippo Grandi, said that the imperative remains to provide protection for people fleeing deadly violence, and we are concerned that this decision, though temporary, may compound the anguish for those it affects.”
