Trudeau Says Canada Will Welcome Refugees Turned Away By The U.S.
On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States. Travelers from seven different countries, including Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, and Libya, are now banned from entering the U.S. so that the nation might be protected from “radical Islamic terrorists.” This action resulted in mass confusion at airports around the world, with many families being stranded and detained after they had already touched down in America.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada quickly reacted to the news by making a pointed statement on Twitter, saying that Canada will welcome refugees that are turned away from the U.S.
“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” Trudeau said on Twitter.
