How aid groups are responding to Trump’s refugee ban

The Trump administration’s executive order on refugees was met with immediate backlash from the humanitarian community. Aid groups that provide direct support to refugees around the world condemned the act that bars entry to Syrian refugees, places all refugee resettlement on hold for 120 days and temporarily bans people from seven countries. Some are issuing statements and others are providing information on how their supporters can take action against the order.
