Trump Blames Airport Chaos on Protesters and Delta

Sharing is Caring!

by Amna El Tawil
The 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, introduced an executive order a few days ago forbidding refugees and individuals from “terror-prone” countries to enter the country. This decision was met with an outburst of disapproval from millions of people around the world and the US which is why people keep protesting for days. What concerns the most is that due to the executive order, refugees primarily women, elderly, and children are denied help from the US, a country that used to protect the unprivileged ones. Even more concerning is the fact, according to numerous protesters across the States, is that the land of immigrants denies other immigrants to visit the country. All these events occurring one after another created a massive chaos on airports. Donald Trump decided to address these new problems on his Twitter account.
 
President Trump blamed Delta’s power outage, not his executive order on immigration, for causing more than 100 people to be detained at airports across the country over the weekend.

 


 


 
However, the nationwide Delta ground stop, caused by a computer problem, only took place overnight Sunday — while refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries have been detained since Trump issued the executive order Friday.
Trump’s statements come as the Department of Homeland Security said all detainees have been released from across the country.


Trump’s executive order — which bars refugees from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from coming to the US for at least three months — caused a constitutional crisis over the weekend.
 
American Civil Liberties Union lawyers went to Brooklyn Federal Court Saturday night on behalf of two Iraqi refugees detained at JFK Airport.
 
Judge Ann Donnelly issued a nationwide emergency stay that temporarily halted foreign travelers affected by the order from being booted from the country.
 
Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a press release: “I want to apologize to all of our customers who have been impacted by this frustrating situation. This type of disruption is not acceptable to the Delta family, which prides itself on reliability and customer service. I also want to thank our employees who are working tirelessly to accommodate our customers.”
