As reported by Emma Baccellieri of Deadspin, Mo Farah, a four-time Olympic gold medalist who is training in Ethiopia may not be able to see his kids for some time because of President Trump’s executive order.
The long-distance runner, a British citizen, born in Somalia, who’s lived in the U.S. for the past 6-years, took to Facebook to voice his concerns about coming home. “It’s deeply troubling that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home—to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.”

This isn’t the first time the decorated athlete has faced trouble coming home – in 2012 he was detained entry on suspicion of being a terrorist.
