Featured United States: Resistance against Trump Grows.

The Miami Journal, a digital publication of that city, showed this Sunday the following title: The Trump Revolution, "Chaos, indignation, and dozens of people affected by presidential veto".

According to EFE agency, the measures approved this Friday by Trump, under the pretext of protecting the country against terrorism were denounced by organizations that believe them unconstitutional.

Those dispositions establish to prevent for 90 days the granting of visa and entry to all citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen, as well as the welcoming of refugees for 120 days.

Who were the first victims? Parents travelling to the U.S. to meet their families, universities students from those countries or refugees escaping war conflict zones.

The Miami agency also reported that, during the first 24 hours, there were cases of people who weren’t given authorization to fly towards the United States from Egypt, Turkey or Holland.

But also, for example, in New York, more than a dozen of travelers were arrested at JFK airport, next to two Iraqis who carried their visa in order.

One of them, Hameed Jhalid Darweesh, was released after hours of arrest only through the intervention of several organizations and two North American congress members.

Darweesh had been granted visa for him and his family after having cooperated for years with the Pentagon armed forces in Iraq.

"I supported the U.S. Government in the other side of the world, but when I’ve got here they told me 'no', and they treated me like I had broken the rules and done something really ban ", he declared.

For example, they took up to 12 hours confirming half-way that the temporary veto includes the citizens from those seven countries, "regardless if they had permanent residency in the United States."

Including people residing legally in United States for years, "forced now to get an exemption to return there, a process that will come to a decision "case by case."

According to journalistic investigations, nearly 500 000 citizens from those seven nations have earned the permanent residence in the last ten years.

The Wall Street Journal hinted that citizens from these countries count - even though- with passport from another nation, something that will be public shortly.

Bottom line is? No one can deny that in this huge board a marked delicate situation is brewing.
