President Trump's top aide, Kellyanne Conway, on Sunday disputed the notion that the president's sweeping executive order barring refugees and people from seven majority-Muslim nations amounts to a ban on Muslims.
The president on Friday signed an order that bars Syrian refugees indefinitely and halts the country's refugee resettlement program for four months.
It also denies entry for 90 days to people from seven majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.
The president on Saturday denied that the executive order was a Muslim ban. He also insisted his new administration was "totally prepared" to carry out the refugee and travel ban.
A federal judge in New York on Saturday night granted an emergency stay temporarily halting the removal of immigrants and refugees detained following Trump's order.
