Muslims ‘love this country,’ grapple with challenges

President Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order to temporarily restrict entry to the United States from selected countries has spawned protests, created more fodder for news talk shows, and has many Americans wondering if we are betraying our core values. Paul Hyde of The Greenville News spoke to local Muslims about the order and what it means to them. Furman Politics and International Affairs professor Akan Malici was one of the three Hyde interviewed.

Much good is coming out of this.”
