Navigating Syria and the United States

On January 27th this year, The President issued an executive order that banned travel to the United States for a period of 3 months. The predominantly Muslim countries impacted included Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan, and Somalia. Travel from Syria was banned completely with this order. On February 3rd, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a previously issued stay by US District Court Judge, James Robart of Seattle.

Bellevue College is host to international students from dozens of countries from around the world. Over 50 different languages are spoken every day on campus. KBCS’s General Manager Steve Ramsey spoke with a student from Syria recently about the impact the immigration ban has had on him and his family.
