President Donald Trump’s executive orders barring entry to refugees and ordering the completion of a southern border wall “have united the world against you,” former Mexican president Vicente Fox warned in a tweet on Saturday.
Even some Republican lawmakers are publicly criticizing Trump’s policies.
But through all the anger and chaos he has created, Trump has found at least a few staunch allies: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and some of his hard-line US supporters.
Netanyahu’s public alignment with Trump’s incendiary policies will likely accelerate the erosion of some of Israel’s traditional bases of support in the US.

In response to President Trump's Executive Order banning entry into the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries, the ACLU of Oregon has joined with local attorneys to assist in the representation of anyone affected.
We are deeply relieved that, on Saturday evening, a federal judge stayed the removal of individuals with approved refugee applications, valid visas, and other individuals from the seven banned countries legally authorized to enter the United States. The stay means that people detained at airports may not be deported, but people may still be detained pending these proceedings.
