Trump Blames Airport Chaos on Delta Computer Problem, Not His Travel Ban

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer held back tears Sunday while denouncing President Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees.

'We have a lot to do and we want Republican senators, both of whom pursued the presidency themselves, we want them to be there for this president, to support him, especially when he is trying to keep our people safe, ' she said.

During a meeting with small business owners Monday, Trump said Schumer cried "fake tears".

The order banned US entry to individuals from seven predominantly-Muslim nations, and it prompted anti-Trump, pro-Muslim refugee protests around the country.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) had grown teary-eyed Sunday when he called the executive action "mean-spirited and un-American" at a Manhattan news conference.

Mr Trump signed an executive order which banned the entry of refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority countries, sparking protests and drawing criticism from governments in London and Berlin to Jakarta and Tehran. "It's not fair and it's not right", he added. As I've reported, there are various guerrilla ethics warfare techniques that they may try to employ to force more public attention to Trump's multiple conflicts.

Though the administration has denied the order is anti-Muslim, former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani told "Fox New Sunday" the president had asked him how to construct the a Muslim ban so that it would pass constitutional muster.

Schumer has already said he would oppose Betsy DeVos as Education secretary, Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, and Sen. The order bars citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days, and places a 120-day moratorium on the country's refugee program.

"These orders go against what America has always been about".

The Connecticut senator suggested that the USA should follow a European model of immigration policy rather than a ban on select nations, and make sure that those who manage to enter the US are unable to get unsafe weapons. "I think we need to be careful". Some people have since been detained at the airport and a federal judge granted an emergency stay, which "temporarily allow [ed] people with valid visas who landed in the U.S.to stay in the country".
