On January 27th, President Donald Trump issued an Executive Order banning refugees from Libya, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen and Somalia from entering the United States. Trump has also authorized federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to deport immigrants who have committed, or are suspected of, even minor legal infractions.

She joins 8 O’Clock Buzz host Brian Standing, in the studio.
