Donald Trump, on January 27 this year, signed an executive order that puts a ban on immigartion from seven Mumlim countries - Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. It restricts them to enter in the US territory for 90 days. 

The order, by Trump, has been widely criticized. Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has gone all out against President Donald Trump in an opinion piece in a leading daily. She wrote, "Americans have shed blood to defend the idea that human rights transcend culture, geography, ethnicity and religion.The decision to suspend the resettlement of refugees to the US and deny entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries has been met with shock by our friends around the world precisely because of this record."

"As the mother of six children, I very much want our country to be safe for them, and all our nation's children. But I also want to know that refugee children who qualify for asylum will always have a chance to plead their case to a compassionate America," the 41-year-old actor added.

Jolie went on to say, "It is simply not true that our borders are overrun or that refugees are admitted to the United States without close scrutiny. Refugees are in fact subject to the highest level of screening of any category of traveller to the United States."

"Shutting our door to refugees or discriminating among them is not our way, and does not make us safer. Acting out of fear is not our way. Targeting the weakest does not show strength," wrote Jolie taking a dig at Trump. 

"We all want to keep our country safe. So we must look to the sources of the terrorist threat...We have to make common cause with people of all faiths and backgrounds fighting the same threat and seeking the same security. This is where I would hope any president of our great nation would lead on behalf of all Americans," Jolie wrote while concluding her piece.

Put your own house in order first

I am with trump!!

These people have millions of dollars but they can't house one refugee family.

Well, she might say all these things, but will she house those people? No way. Both her and the looney Clooneys don't put money in the mouth. Just go away already and work on your family.

I agree with her....the stupidity is that:America won't be safer by such decisions

Well Said Angie! Love u for that!
Trump is signing executive orders left and right as the small kid who tries to pretend to be The President of the USA. H wiz gonna repent for this soon.

Very well said! The best statement from anyone about this subject. It states that dividing everyone never benefits anyone, it just continuess the battles.

Very well-said Angelina. Hats off.

Cery well-said Angelina. Hats off.

Now Trump will bash her on Twitter. OMG the American president is a shame but entertaining.

no he wont. she is too hot to be bashed by him.

Why should it be difficult for her if her Father supports Trump? Such a desi assumption to make. Angelina is not, and has never been, her father. Her father is a narcissist, he gave Angie and her mum and brother a great deal of pain. She was estranged from him for many years, she did not even take his last name professionally. Angie on the other hand is a compassionate soul and her worked for years with UNHCR, she has tremendous knowledge about refugees and this is well thought, well worded, wisely restrained piece from her. She is a courageous person.

It's difficult for her because her father support Trump, this is weird.
