Canada has declared that it will offer temporary housing to individuals who have been left stranded in the country in the aftermath of President Trump’s travel ban.

Gulf News reports that immigration minister Ahmad Hussain recently spoke in a news conference regarding the recent Trump travel ban developments, although not specifying the number of people stranded in Canada. The travel ban suspends the arrival of all refugees for 120 days and barred entry to travelers coming from seven primarily Muslim countries for 90 days.

However, Hussain said that the Trump administration assured that Canadians with dual-nationalities with the listed countries won’t be affected by the ban.

Prime Minister Trudeau posted in Twitter, “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.”
