I was Knighted by Queen, but Trump made me an alien – Mo Farah

A 90 day US visa ban was recently imposed on Muslim countries such as Somali, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, Iran and Syria by US President, Donald Trump.

NaijaOnlineTV gathered these has to do with measures of curbing terrorism, as earlier mentioned by Trump during his campaign. These ban according to report also affects citizens of other countries, who have dual citizenship with these affected Muslim nations, as they have also been banned from entering the USA.

One man who is not having it good in regards to Trump’s decision on these, is Mo Farah, a British sprint champion, an origin of Somalia. Mo Farah writes on his displeasure.

On 1st January this year, Her Majesty The Queen made me a Knight of the Realm. On 27th January, President Donald Trump seems to have made me an alien.

I am a British citizen who has lived in America for the past six years, working hard, contributing to society, paying my taxes and bringing up our four children in the place they now call home. Now, me and many others like me are being told that we may not be welcome.

It’s deeply troubling that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home, to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.

I was welcomed into Britain from Somalia at eight years old and given the chance to succeed and realize my dreams. I have been proud to represent my country, win medals for the British people and receive the greatest honor of a knighthood.

My story is an example of what can happen when you follow policies of compassion and understanding, not hate and isolation. Mo Farah says.

Other reports from the UK indicates that over a million people have signed a petition against this latest executive order by the 45th President of the United States and a demonstration is said to occur today especially against his proposed state visit to the UK.
