Many say they’re feeling public scrutiny now more than ever.
President Donald Trump is expected soon to order a ban on granting visas to citizens of several Muslim-majority countries. The nations expected to be listed are Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia. Minnesota is home to the nation’s largest concentration of Somalis, and reports of a pending ban are making people tense.
Critics have blamed the U.N. for not reacting faster to the 2011 famine in Somalia because the international community feared that relief would be confiscated by Islamic militants.
