Hi, I'm Ayshah with your latest Newsround update this

:00:00.:00:00.

Coming up: We find out how kids are celebrating Chinese New Year.

:00:07.:00:10.

And the turtle found a long way from home.

:00:11.:00:24.

First up, people who support refugees, including female rights

:00:25.:00:26.

campaigner Malala Yousafzai, have criticised President Trump.

:00:27.:00:31.

It's because of his decision to stop people who have left Syria,

:00:32.:00:34.

because of the war there, from entering the US.

:00:35.:00:36.

But his supporters say he's made the right decision

:00:37.:00:40.

Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th US President last

:00:41.:00:49.

Friday and after his first week in office says he's stopping

:00:50.:00:52.

refugees from Syria from coming to America until further notice.

:00:53.:00:59.

He's also signed an order to stop people from six other

:01:00.:01:02.

mainly Muslim countries, including Iran and Iraq

:01:03.:01:07.

in the Middle East and Somalia and Sudan in Africa,

:01:08.:01:09.

being given permission to travel to America

:01:10.:01:11.

The President made immigration a big issue in his election.

:01:12.:01:25.

The things he has said about migrants and refugees

:01:26.:01:30.

have made him popular with his supporters.

:01:31.:01:32.

He says the decision he has just made will help keep terrorists out

:01:33.:01:35.

We want to make sure that we are not admitting into our country the very

:01:36.:01:42.

threats our soldiers are fighting overseas.

:01:43.:01:43.

We only want to admit those into our country

:01:44.:01:45.

who will support our country and love deeply our people.

:01:46.:01:50.

But other people say banning all refugees from Syria

:01:51.:01:53.

is not the right decision, and that it will punish

:01:54.:01:55.

people who have nothing to do with terrorism.

:01:56.:02:04.

She is the citizens and the innocent people of Syria that were affected

:03:13.:03:26.

because, like, obviously I am Chinese and my parents are from

:03:27.:03:30.

China, so it is always important to remember our culture. So, when it

Chinese New Year. For lots of people from places like America and many

:03:58.:04:01.

Asian countries get together with your friends and loved ones.

:04:02.:04:05.

Traditionally in the UK, New Year's Day balsam the 1st of January every

:04:06.:04:09.

year. However, Chinese New Year is based on the ancient lunar calendar,

:04:10.:04:13.

which is a little different. This means the date changes every year.

:04:14.:04:17.

The Chinese calendar also celebrates a different animal each year. There

:04:18.:04:24.

are 12 in total, and this year it is all about the rooster. There are

:04:25.:04:28.

celebrations going on all over the country, and these guys are part of

my martial arts club. That's not all. Chinatown in Manchester will be

:04:47.:04:50.

filled with even more dancers and performers, including the

:04:51.:04:52.

15-year-old gymnast, who has come all the way from China to take part.

:04:53.:04:59.

I love around Chinese New Year time I get to meet so many new people we

:05:00.:05:03.

do these performances, like I get to spend time with my friends and

:05:04.:05:06.

family, but more importantly I get to meet all these amazing people and

a lot of times we end up becoming really good friends and those
