TRUMP ORDERS BAN ON MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS INTO UNITED STATES.

President Donald Trump, on Saturday, has ordered restriction of people from seven Muslim-majority countries into the United States of America with immediate effect. Unfortunately, muslim travelers already en route the United states remained stranded on landing in the airports.  This has developed uproar and reflexive attack on the President.

Moreover, this decision has been part of campaign promise since 2016 which he had promise to enact. The president has made series of controversial decisions since taking office a week ago. Putting a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barring travelers from Syria and six other muslim populated countries is the most recent.

Civil rights, faith groups and human rights activists have immediately kicked against the ban and have vowed to fight for its reversal. However, speaking to newsmen in the White House’s Oval Office on Saturday, President Trump has stated that his order was “not a Muslim ban” and said the measures were long overdue.

“It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over,” Trump said.

The Department of Homeland Security said about 375 travelers had been affected by the order, 109 of whom were in transit and were denied entry to the

United States. Another 173 were stopped by airlines before boarding. The new rules affected people in transit and families waiting for them, and caused havoc for businesses with employees holding passports from the targeted nations and colleges with international students.

Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are all deeply affected.

Indeed, the AFCON is amazingly unpredictable. Sunday saw the exit of the host nation, Gabon after failing to win any match in the tournament. Progressively, Monday received the crash of Algeria (also failed to win any game) before Tuesday followed the trend to swallow the defending Champion and favorite of the competition, Ivory Coast.

Ivory coast lost 0-1 to Morocco in a must win tie. This drew a close to the reigning champions’ title defense with just 2points out of 3games. With Morocco’s triumph over Ivory Coast, they successfully progressed into the quarterfinals behind group leader, DRCongo. DrCongo have been a very interesting surprise in this tournament. Of course, nobody really gave them a chance but against all odds, they topped a group that has Ivory Coast, Morocco and Togo.

Group B update

It’s quite surprising to see how the mighties are fallen in this tournament. After seeing the departure of the Host nation, Gabon, on Sunday, Monday night wasn’t also shy to display the exit of yet another Giant in the African Football. The reigning African Best player, Riyad Mahrez’ struggle wasn’t good enough to save Algeria from the brink of a disappointing exit. Algeria played another 2-2 draw against the group leaders, Senegal to end the campaign. Tunisia, on the other end, white washed Zimbabwe with a 4-2 defeat making them advance to the quarterfinals following Senegal’s lead.

Algeria came into the encounter seeking not short of victory. Islam Slimani stroked in a brace [10’ and 52’] but wasn’t good enough to take them pass the group stage. Successive response from both Pape Kouli Diop[41’] and Moussa Sow [53’] halted their advances.

Are you thinking of owning one as well? Of course, you can have yours too. It’s relatively easy but requires adequate time and attention. Tie and dye is fast taking over the hip-hop culture recently.
