Trump's Order on Immigration Is Slammed by Many, Welcomed by Others

Many across the U.S. and world responding to order on immigration, refugees.

The American Civil Liberties Union was one of many that criticized the president's action.

To remind Americans of the potential consequences of denying entry to refugees, software developer Russel Neiss and Rabbi Charlie Schwartz joined together to make the St. Louis Manifest Twitter account for International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The tweets tell the stories of about 900 Jews fleeing from Nazi Germany in 1939 on the MS St. Louis who sought to come to the U.S. but were forced to sail back to Europe where many were later killed in the Holocaust.

Democratic politicians were among those slamming the executive action.

Some well-known conservatives are also not in agreement with the order. Among them is prominent evangelical leader Russell Moore.

But others strongly support Trump's action.

Ann Corcoran of a group called Refugee Resettlement Watch praised the president's action, but suggested it doesn't go far enough and Congress will need to act.

"I’m telling you that if the law is not changed we will be back to square one come the end of May ... The next President can undo it all, if the law is not rewritten," Corcoran wrote on her organization's blog.

At least some foreign leaders praised Trump's efforts to crack down on immigration, such as his planned wall along the Mexican border.
