Scottish FM welcomes refugees banned by US President

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Saturday responded to President Trump's executive order banning refugees and halting immigration from several countries by retweeting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Saturday responded to President Trump's executive order banning refugees and halting immigration from several countries by retweeting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"Welcome to Scotland too," Sturgeon tweeted alongside Trudeau's tweet which welcomed refugees to the country.

The new Republican president’s order imposes a 90-day ban on entry from citizens of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia, blocks refugees from Syria indefinitely, and suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days.

Trump's sweeping ban sparked confusion and anger at major US airports on Saturday after border agents began detaining refugees and immigrants who arrived in the country a day after Trump issued his executive order.

Admission will resume only after vetting has been deemed "adequate" by the secretary of State, the secretary of Homeland Security and Director of National Intelligence.
