The Daily Quote

“A backlash against President Trump’s new immigration rules intensified Monday, threatening Washington’s relationship with its main partner in battling the Islamic State as Iraq’s parliament voted for a reciprocal ban on visas for Americans… [I]t underscores growing resentment over a U.S. executive order that imposed visa restrictions on Iraqis and the citizens of six other Muslim-majority nations… Iraqis have taken huge personal risks to support the U.S. military and fight alongside it. But many of those who are in the process of being resettled have been caught up in Trump’s 90-day ban on visas and 120-day suspension of refugee entries, adding a new layer of uncertainty after years of arduous security vetting, medical checks and onerous paperwork.  ‘After all I’ve done for the Americans, entering battles side by side with them, now I’m a terrorist in their eyes,’ said Salih al-Issawi, 30, who worked as an interpreter with the U.S. Marines in Fallujah between 2006 and 2011, when he applied for resettlement.”
