WASHINGTON, DC–(Marketwired – Oct. 16, 2017) – President Donald Trump is reevaluating his “no Muslims ban” proposal.
As part of a meeting with leaders from various Muslim-majority nations at the White House on Thursday, President Trump made a statement stating that while he was willing to work with countries on the world stage, the “No Muslim ban,” which he signed in January, was not working for the United States.
“This is not a ban on Muslims.
This is a ban that we need to get rid of.
It is not working,” Trump said.
“We can’t have the kind of country we have if we’re not going to have the unity, the unity of the United State.
So, I’m very concerned about the direction the country is heading.
We’ve been through a lot.”
The “No Muslims Ban” proposal, which was signed into law by President Trump in January 2017, would have barred the entry of all Muslims into the United U.S. The administration has been trying to craft a more inclusive and compassionate immigration policy.
However, many experts and advocacy groups say the policy has failed to stem the tide of refugees from Muslim-dominated countries who are flooding into the U.
