Asian Muslims cast a wary eye on Trump's travel ban

Indonesians and Malaysians fear growing discrimination from US president

JAKARTA/KUALA LUMPUR When Annisa Rochadiat made a recent trip to Japan, she was worried about whether she would be able to re-enter the U.S. The Indonesian national has been living in Detroit for the past few years, and this was the first time she had traveled outside America since Donald Trump took office as U.S. president in late January.

"My worries mainly stemmed from the fact that I'm visibly Muslim, who also happens to hold citizenship of a Muslim-majority country," said Rochadiat, who wears a hijab.
