Five physicians affected by Trump’s immigration executive order

From Becker’s:

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Jan. 27, which bans nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen from traveling into the United States for 90 days, bans Syrian refugees indefinitely and suspends the U.S. refugee program for 120 days, according to The Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Several physicians who are citizens of one of the countries included in the travel ban who were traveling overseas attempted to return this past weekend and were affected by the executive order. A few were detained for hours before returning home while others were unable to board their flights back to the U.S.

On Jan. 28, a federal judge issued a temporary injunction that blocked travelers held at airports from being detained.

Here are five physicians who were affected by President Trump’s travel ban.
