Trump’s Mideast immigration ban excludes GCC, Egypt

US President Donald Trump reads an executive order before signing it at Homeland Security headquarters in Washington, US, January 25, 2017.

US President Donald Trump’s proposed ban on immigrants from Muslim-majority nations has caused controversy worldwide.

The ban would suspend all entry of immigrants from Muslim countries to the US. However, the ban only affects seven states in the Middle East, according to Bloomberg News,

Trump’s proposed list bans immigrants from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, yet excludes Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

In May last year Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US back in December, in response to a shooting spree by two radicalized Muslims in California that killed 14 people.
