Conway: Inconvenience to 1 percent of travelers a ‘small price to pay’
President Trump’s top aide Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended President Trump’s sweeping executive order barring refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations amid backlash.
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.
