Jeddah : Kingdom of saudi arabia

Jeddah is second-largest city in Saudi Arabia after the capital city, Riyadh. With a population currently at 4.2 million people, Jeddah is an important commercial hub.

Jeddah is the principal gateway to Mecca, Islam's holiest city, which able-bodied Muslims are required to visit at least once in their lifetime. It is also a gateway to Medina, the second holiest place in Islam.

A Day in history : January 27th, 2017

Executive Order: Section 1.  Purpose.  The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans.

Trump's recent executive order on immigration bars citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for the next 90 days and suspends the admission of all refugees for 120 days.

The executive order does not, however, apply to any of the countries where the 9/11 hijackers were from, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, or Lebanon.

I personally view this executive order as an overreaching blanket ban on Muslims and should be overturned immediately.
