The news conference, held jointly with Global Cleveland, a nonprofit that welcomes international newcomers, came on the third anniversary of the Trump administration’s Muslim travel ban, which bars migrants, refugees and asylum seekers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, as well as North Korea and Venezuela. It also came in response to President Trump’s plan to expand that list to include seven more countries – something he had mentioned during a wide-ranging Jan. 22 news conference at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
