Nassau, Bahamas, February 1, 2017 – Donald Trump coming into the Office of US President does not change the bi-lateral agreements The Bahamas has with the United States and so his executive orders to ban some travelers into the US, has no effect on Bahamians.
The US Embassy explains this and reminds that the bans are primarily on Muslims from seven identified countries. Still the move by President Trump caused a new rash of protests to erupt. It was last Friday that the President signed that executive order which imposes a 90 day ban, even on Muslims with legal visas. Many are calling the move unconstitutional.
Foreign Affairs Minister, Fred Mitchell told Magnetic Media that The Bahamas has no official position on this decision by President Trump.
