Is Trump’s temporary ban on travel to the U.S. from six Muslim-majority countries necessary?
Poll results above, having been collected over the course of this week, are current as of this morning, March 16, a day following the temporary halt put on the Trump administration‘s second draft of a travel ban. A federal court in Hawaii issued the injunction, stopping the ban a day before it would have gone into effect, in response to challenges from some state governments.
As illustrated, nearly 3 in every 4 readers believed the revised travel ban as necessary. If it advances beyond the injunction put in place by the courts, it would restrict travel to the U.S. from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — also including measures aimed at restricting refugee resettlement in the U.S. The president removed Iraq from the original list of seven with this revised measure, issued last week.
