MUSLIM travellers have reportedly been stopped from boarding flights and turned away from US border controls after President Donald Trump banned citizens from several Middle Eastern countries.

The so called “Muslim ban” came into affect after the new US president signed an executive order to prevent people from mainly Islamic countries from entering America – just days into his presidency.

Mr Trump has closed US borders to all refugees for the next four months and has put a temporary ban in place for people travelling from half a dozen countries – even if they’ve been issued visas in the past.

He first proposed the ban while he was a contender to become the Republican party’s nominee for US president.

He called for a “total and complete shutdown” of the country’s borders to Muslims in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

At the time he faced international condemnation.

But as he signed the order at the Pentagon on Friday he made good on his promise.

He said: “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas.

“We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people.”

US border control must now turn travellers away from Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Iran, Libya, Yemen and Somalia over the next 90 days.
