LGBT refugees who have fled execution under the ISIS terrorist in Iraq and Syria cannot look for shelter in the United States anymore because of the new President’s order. Donald Trump has recently signed an executive order this week to suspend the US Refugee Admissions Program, creating further obstacles for people who have fled persecution and ending the resettlement of refugees The other order forbids the entry to the USA for the citizens of such countries as Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen. The Human Rights Campaign’s President Chad Griffin warned: “President Trump’s attacks on immigrants and refugees are a direct assault on America’s most fundamental values. Donald Trump’s unjust and unconscionable executive orders make life more dangerous for countless LGBTQ people, and could equal a death sentence for those trying to escape violence and persecution from places such as Syria. No wall, no matter how high, can block America’s promise of liberty and justice for all.”
