Trump’s executive order temporarily blocked

People protest the muslim ban
Thousands of Americans have protested against Trump's executive order. A Seattle District Attorney ruled blocked the order declaring it unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge James Robart, based in Seattle, placed a nationwide temporary block on Donald Trump’s executive order, which bans people from entering the U.S. from seven countries. The block goes into effect immediately.

On Monday, a lawsuit was filed against Trump, the U.S Department of Homeland Security and high-ranking Trump Administration officials.

The state of Washington was the first to sue against Trump’s executive order, as announced by Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

Ferguson included in his lawsuit that the executive order was unconstitutional because it violates the protection of religious freedom.

On Friday, Robart made the decision to rule in favor of Ferguson’s request.

“The executive order adversely affects the state’s residents in areas of employment, education, business, family relations, and freedoms to travel.” Robart stated, in a written ruling.

Since the ruling, The White House issued a statement by the Press Secretary stating, “The Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay on this order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate.”

This has added more confusion on airports across the U.S.

The Telegraph has reported that “Mr. Trump’s order…led to 100,000 visas being revoked. An administration official later put the figure at fewer than 60,000.”

CNN issued out a list of Technology executives expressing deep concerns about Trump’s executive order earlier this week, including Bank of America, Netflix, Starbucks, Apple, and Google CEOs.

        Why would a hijib scare me? Or do you mean jihad? Actually, nothing scares me because the Lord is by my side.

        However, if you’re gay, you can fear being shot to death in a night club like what just happened in Australia. (Sidney Herald, Feb. 10, 2017). And let’s not forget the poor victims in Florida.

        If you’re a woman, you can fear forced female genital mutilation, which is estimated to occur to 50% of the female Muslim immigrants to Sweden. (FriaTider, Feb. 12, 2017).

        Also, according to a professor at Georgetown University, men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings. (Heatstreet, Feb. 10, 2017).

        If you “dishonor” your family, you can fear an honor killing by your own family. (Creeping Sharia, Feb. 10, 2017, “Texas Father Wanted for ‘Honor Killing’ Two Teen Daughters”).

        If you’re a simply a “non-believer” you can fear having your head cut off…

        If you’re taking a stroll in an outdoor market, you can fear being run over by a truck (e.g., Berlin Christmas Market).

        If you running the Boston Marathon, you can fear being blown to bits…

        I could go on and on but you should get my point…
