Trump signed an executive order indefinitely halting refugees and restricting travel for visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

"When I came here, they said no". Trump also mentioned "radical Islamic terrorists" while signing it.

Reports have also suggested that the United States would refrain from giving visas to citizens of Iran, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq, whose governments were on the USA list of sponsors of terrorism or countries of concern.

He, however, denied that barring refugees from several predominantly Muslim nations amounted to a ban on Muslims. In addition, she says this executive order "will have an effect not just for these 120 days but then also for a significant period of time after that".

"There is no evidence that refugees - the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation - are a threat to national security", Lena F. Masri, the group's national litigation director.

"Trump's visa ban for Iranians is racist".

Even those with the correct paperwork, like Hameed Khalid Darweesh, who has an immigrant visa, can not get into the country to join their families.

Obama's office added, "The president fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals due to their faith or religion". According to reports, 11 refugees were being held at the airport Friday evening.

The White House, though, has bristled at that characterization, pointing to a list of some 25 Muslim-majority countries that are not affected by the ban.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Sunday that the controversial ban is a 90-day pause to allow the Trump administration to establish enhanced vetting restrictions.

Iran went further than condemning the ban and announced plans to bar USA citizens from entering the country, according to Reuters.

During the Obama administration, vetting for refugees included in-person interviews overseas, where they provided biographical details about themselves, including their families, friendships, social or political activities, employment, phone numbers, email accounts and more. They also provided biometric information, including fingerprints.
