NASW website states that the Trump’s Immigration Executive Order is inhumane. The NASW points out that the travel ban is counter-productive departure from the US’ previous refugee policy. It conflicts with this nation’s value of being a haven for those trying try get away from oppression and violence as well. The NASW also believes that the way the policy was implemented was unacceptable, insensitive and inhumane. If you remember correctly, people were being determined for hours and hours at US international airports without representation. Travelers were being asked if they were Muslim and then detained, just like Muhammad Ali Jr. who is very clearly an American born citizen.
