Fox News’ Jesse Watters caught up with several hundred high schoolers in New York City who earlier this week protested President Donald Trump’s travel ban. As it turns out, most of the kids Watters talked to were not exactly well-informed about the temporary travel ban.
The order, which was suspended Thursday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, established a 90-day freeze on entry into the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Yemen and Libya — as well as a 120-day moratorium on the refugee resettlement program.
But most of the students, who ditched their classes to march against Trump in Manhattan’s Foley Square, seemed to have very little knowledge of what the executive order actually entailed, Fox News reported.
“Which nations are on the travel ban list?” Watters inquired of one student.
The student, clearly unsure of what to say, uttered: “Well, as of right now, I’m not completely sure about the actual countries.”
Other class-skipping students claimed the ban targeted Lebanon and Afghanistan — neither of those countries is outlined in the executive order.
