Protests are popping up everywhere after Trump banned immigrants from 7 countries. Don’t forget, Obama banned Iraqi refugees in 2011. Not really surprising, this is just more hypocrisy from the liberals. While President Trump gets railed for banning refugees from specific countries, President Obama did the exact same thing less than 6 years ago.
Obama Banned Iraqi Refugees in 2011
Here is the report on Iraqi refugees being banned in 2011 from ABC:
As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. One Iraqi who had aided American troops was assassinated before his refugee application could be processed, because of the immigration delays, two U.S. officials said. In 2011, fewer than 10,000 Iraqis were resettled as refugees in the U.S., half the number from the year before, State Department statistics show.
Donald Trump Jr. chimed in and let his opinion on the situation be known.

Very different reactions from the media when it comes to the two presidents banning refugees from specific countries. It gives a clear indicator of who the media is for and against.
