What Trump's new Travel Ban means for Nevada

Posted by Unknown | Mar 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

This week on March 16, 2017, President Trump's latest Executive Order (EO) on immigration will be implemented. It takes the place of the President's earlier immigration EO, which has been suspended by a federal court. This new EO mandates the following:

For the next 90 days, foreign nationals or citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen who are outside the United States will not be allowed into the U.S. if they do not have a valid visa and did not have a valid visa at 5:00 P.M. EST on January 27, 2017. The EO does NOT apply to the following people:

However, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State may grant visas or U.S. entry to nationals of these six countries if the national shows that 1) not entering the U.S. would result in undue hardship, 2) national security is not threatened by the national's entry, and 3) the U.S. national interest would be served by the entry.

Additionally, the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program will be halted for 120 days, and no more than 50,000 refugees will be admitted in 2017 (this does not apply refugees who have previously been approved for transit by the U.S. State Department.) Every foreign national is required to have a Nevada visa interview before receiving a visa.
