When US President Donald Trump signed the controversial executive order banning visa holders from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days, it sent shock waves worldwide.
But it was Mr Trump and his Cabinet’s handling of US green card holders from the affected countries that gave an insight on how polices may be effected in the future.
Green card holders are allowed to reside in the US as permanent residents.
Perhaps the best way to describe the situation is to use a football analogy – green card gets the red card.
… Dr Mohamed Nawab Mohamed Osman, an assistant professor at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, told TNP Mr Trump’s immigration policy evolving on the fly spoke volumes about how there is “confusion in his Cabinet”.
