Green card holders can come to US from those 7 countries, please fact check and ignore all the misinformation.
I believe that other visa holders are banned right now, but it's a temporary ban. Hopefully they will come up with a long term plan.
I believe the ban is temporary and its actual impact is small. They might use the ban as a political statement to counter what Obama has done. After the ban is lifted, we can look at the real policy they want.
It migh be a political trick to make the liberals jump up and down, and make his supporter feel satistified. Their real policy is still unknown. I guess they use this ban as a tool to break political correctness and will prove to people that not a lot of damage is done despite all the media and protesting and all the scary predictions. They may use many similar little tricks to change public opinion without causing real economic and political damage.
I feel that now is a historical turning point and it's natural to feel nervous, uncertain, and frightened. The actual policy might be as bad as you think, or as bad as the media says.
It's an ideology battle. It's a correction after a huge rally, it's a correction after an overshoot to the left.
From his first 10 days in the office, you can tell that he is very different from traditional politicians, he manages the White House as a CEO. Like or not, he would most likely to occupy the office for 8 years. This is just the beginning, we need to save energy to live the next 8 years, can't be overly consumed over a few small political tricks and forget about all the other important policies. Illegal immigration is the real immigration issue. Number of Muslims is very small in this country and those 7 countries have very small number of visitors, and USA targeted those 7 countries in the past, it's just a usual trick.
