Demonstrators in New York City protest President Trump's recent executive order enacting a travel ban.

On this episode of Indivisible, we take your calls on the recent executive order by President Trump enacting a ban on travel to the United States from certain countries with heavy Muslim populations, resulting in a burst of protests over the weekend.

Law professor and director of the CLEAR project Ramzi Kassem clarifies the rules in place that target Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and who stands to be affected by them. We also talk to Betsy Fisher, policy director at the International Refugee Assistance Project, about the relation between resettlement policies and counter-terrorism efforts.

Hosts for this episode are WNYC's Kai Wright and Anne McElvoy from The Economist.
