Malala, Zuckerberg react to Trump’s US immigration ban

Sputnik News– Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani female education activist, and Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, have expressed their reactions to US President Donald Trump’s new ban on allowing people from seven Muslim countries to enter the US.

Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani-born female activist who wrote a blog for BBC about a life under Taliban rule when she was 11 and is the youngest person ever to receive a Nobel Peace Prize, expressed concern about executive order that will ban entry for people from Syria and six other countries to the US in a post on her Malala Fund’s Facebook page.

“I am heartbroken that today President Trump is closing the door on children, mothers and fathers fleeing violence and war,” Malala said in her statement. “I am heartbroken that America is turning its back on a proud history of welcoming refugees and immigrants — the people who helped build your country, ready to work hard in exchange for a fair chance at a new life.”
