President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday prohibiting people from seven predominantly-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. over the next 90 days. The countries included in the ban are Somalia, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Iraq and Syria.
The president's orders went into effect upon signing the order. Since the executive order was signed, people abroad who have visas allowing them to enter the U.S. are not permitted to travel.

The 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia, Egypt & UAE--not the 7 nations in the immigration ban. These all do have Trump properties though.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 28, 2017
