Confusion of the Trump Travel Ban: CNN

The Trump administration, eager to demonstrate he will follow through on his most extreme campaign promises, issued an executive order abruptly banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and also blocking admission of refugees. Authorities in the seven countries and US agencies were caught off guard, with the order released before processes were put in place. “The result was widespread confusion across the country on Saturday as airports struggled to adjust to the new directive,” reports CNN. “The policy team at the White House developed the executive order on refugees and visas, and largely avoided the traditional interagency process that would have allowed the Justice Department and homeland security agencies to provide operational guidance.” Adding to the confusion: Protests in airports and cities, lawsuits, mixed messages and delayed decisions about green-card holders along with media reports about separation of families and detention of professors, executives, artists, translators and specialists who have assisted overseas US military operations. The Trump administration adds that other countries may be included in the ban. As candidate, Donald Trump vowed to ban Muslims from entering the United States; as president, he insists the order was not based on religion. – YaleGlobal

With the signing of the executive order on a Friday afternoon without debate or discourse leading to policy guidelines for Homeland Security administrators to remand to its supervisors and officers for enforcement, what logical outcome would be produced? That fact of it's legality has yet to be determined by court scholars. If the attack on a Quebec, Canada Mosque leading to deaths can be directly traced to Trumps executive order, the United States should begin immediate impeachment hearings and have the "Hate Crime" statues be included as well as "article 25" of the constitution of the United States to remove this person from office for "just cause" because of mental impairment.
