TULSA--President Donald Trump's new immigration order to stop refugees from coming into America has some Tulsa residents concerned. 

 "I do think that there are people out there that need help and we are a very sound country and we could provide that help," said Tulsa Resident Ethan Landis.
  While others say they see both sides.
 "Stop it to be reformed. Lets reform the process that it's currently at, because right now it's not functioning for anybody that's actually wanting to come to this country to work hard," said Tulsa Resident Tessica Carter.
  Marma Rogers said she's not happy President Trump gave the green light for the Dakota Access Pipeline. Rogers spoke to dozens of people protesting downtown today, talking about her experience as a medic at Standing Rock in November. 
"I guess people hoped that it was going to be over, but we knew it wasn't and so we were just kind of angry and knew we had a lot more work to do," said Rogers.
  But like many Americans, Rogers said she's staying positive and hopes she can go back to Standing Rock.
 "I want to with all my heart to go back up there. I don't know if I'm going to be able to, but I'm going to try," said Rogers.
