Smyers said that Friday, the day Trump signed the executive order setting up the immigration bans, was a "shameful day" for the US. Qatar Airways warned USA -bound travelers they would need diplomatic visas or other official documentation before boarding US flights.

A chaotic scene played out in the arrivals terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport in NY, where a group of lawyers had filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqi men who had worked for the U.S. military who were in the air when Trump signed the order.

All seven countries involved in the order - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, and Yemen - are member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which said "many of those fleeing war and persecution have been adversely and unjustly affected" by the measure.

"We are against this stance from the new administration", Laban said, adding: "We hope that the American administration will rethink. this decision". He suspended all refugee resettlements for 120 days. So when he first announced it he said "Muslim ban". Under the order, Syrian refugees are banned indefinitely.

Trump did not ban people from Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt or Lebanon, which are where the 9/11 terrorist hijackers hailed from.

The effects have caused an uproar in the USA and overseas.

Trump said he would defer to the views of Mattis, who has questioned the effectiveness of such practices as waterboarding, which simulates drowning.

Taking a more diplomatic line than the Iraqi parliament, Iraq's Foreign Ministry has asked the United States to reconsider the travel ban on its citizens.

Yemen is also calling a deadly US raid that was carried out Sunday "state terrorism committed by the United States under the pretext of fighting terrorism". Protests have erupted at airports in many cities. "But for now, immediate to do further vetting for people travelling in and out of those countries".

That would be a surprise to the people who've already been deported under the executive order, or those now in detention who are being pressured to sign deportation papers.

Hundreds of thousands of Somali refugees live in Kenya; citing the U.N.'s refugee agency, NPR's Eyder Peralta reports that some 26,000 Somalis in Kenya are undergoing the official process of trying to gain permission to settle in the U.S. Roughly half have already been interviewed by U.S. immigration officials. She said officials denied travelers with dual Canadian and Iranian citizenship from boarding planes in Canada to the United States.

The United States also granted lawful permanent residence, or a "green card", to 52,365 immigrants from the seven now-banned countries during fiscal year 2015, the 12-month period that ended September 30, 2015, which is the most recent data available from the Department of Homeland Security.
