Priebus Clarifies Green Card Holder Status Under Executive Order

President Trump's executive order on immigration has been received with outcry and confusion. The protests began in airports and have made their way to the White House. Opponents charge that the order, which bans refugees from seven nations in the Middle East and Africa, is a "Muslim ban." Mayors and governors insist they were not properly warned. Judges have even fought back against the order, one issuing a stay in a case introduced by the ACLU, mandating that detainees currently being held in U.S. airports cannot be deported.

That explanation, however, may do little to quench Americans' outrage. Thousands of protesters stormed U.S. airports demanding authorities release detainees. Some have complied.
