Hundreds of people are expected to join a demonstration in Nottingham to protest against Donald Trump's executive order later.

It follows the presidents ban on nationals from 7 countries entering the United States. One of the organisers of the protest, Niamh Sherwell Cooper, said

"Donald Trump has imposed a ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US. That includes people who helped the US army, that includes people on holiday trying to get home via the United States, that includes people trying to be reunited with their dying parents. It also includes Britons with dual nationality, like our national hero Mo Farah. Even the Iraq-born Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi will be affected."

More than 400 people have pledged their support for the demonstration and committed to attend on social media site Facebook. It's one of dozens of demonstrations expected to take place across the UK at the same time.

UK dual nationals 'exempt' from travel ban

UK residents with dual nationality are "apparantly exempt" from President Trump's US travel ban, provided they are not travelling from one of the seven banned countries.

ITV News Political Correspondent Libby Wiener reports:

The Foreign and Commonwealth office confirmed:

  • The Presidential executive order only applies to individuals travelling from one of the seven named countries.
  • If you are travelling to the US from anywhere other than one of those countries (for instance, the UK) the executive order does not apply to you and you will experience no extra checks regardless of your nationality or your place of birth.
  • If you are a UK national who happens to be travelling from one of those countries to the US, then the order does not apply to you – even if you were born in one of those countries.
  • If you are a dual citizen of one of those countries travelling to the US from OUTSIDE those countries then the order does not apply to you.
  • The only dual nationals who might have extra checks are those coming from one of the seven countries themselves – for example a UK-Libya dual national coming from Libya to the US.

Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi has said Trump's travel ban made him feel "discriminated against and demeaned" for the "first time in his life".

Nadhim Zahawi, who was born Baghdad in Iraq, has been advised by lawyers that he will be barred from the United States under the border clampdown on travellers from seven Muslim nations and all refugees.

The MP for Stratford Upon Avon said the order would affect him and his wife as they were both born in Iraq.

The couple have two twin sons studying at Princeton University in the US and they do travel to America regularly.

He told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show: "I don't think I have felt discriminated since little school when the kids were very cruel, as a young boy coming from Iraq of Kurdish origin.

"For the first time in my life last night I felt discriminated against, it's demeaning, it's sad."

Stratford MP says he'll now be banned from US

Stratford-upon-Avon MP Nadhim Zahawi has tweeted he will be banned from America because he was born in Iraq, following President Trump's new "extreme vetting" order.

Zahawi and his wife who was also born in Iraq both have British passports.
