Trump is expected to take steps to stop accepting Syrian refugees, suspend the United States' broader refugee program for 120 days and suspend issuing visas for people from seven mainly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa.As Trump signed the first actions Wednesday afternoon, the hashtags #NoBanNoWall and #RefugeesWelcome trended on Twitter, and thousands signed a pro-refugee petition by Christian evangelical groups. Trump said Wednesday that his executive actions on immigration show that the U.S. will get back "control of its border".A draft order indicates Trump plans to suspend issuing visas to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries for at least 30 days, halt the Syrian refugee program and stop admitting refugees from other countries for 120 days.In New Mexico, which has the nation's highest percentage of Hispanic residents, activists worried the executive actions would hurt all Latinos and Mexican-Americans.A coalition of Muslim, Latino and civil rights leaders also held a news conference in Atlanta to persuade Georgians to denounce Trump's immigration and refugee policies.
