Around 1000 people joined outside the US Embassy in Ottawa to form a human chain and protest this unconscionable, unconstitutional action that President Trump made issuing an executive order banning the entry of individuals from certain Muslim majority countries, temporarily suspending the entry of all refugees into the US, and barring the resettlement of Syrian refugees to the US indefinitely.
