Who Is Banned from the U.S. this Week?
Update: Grandparents are no longer banned.
Reuters has published a leaked State Department cable outlining who cannot get a visa to the U.S. under the new Muslim ban.
In particular, refugee admission from the six countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) has been suspended for the next 120 days. “Close family” has been defined to exclude the following: grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-laws and sisters-in-law, fiancés, and any other “extended” family members.
The ban takes effect tomorrow.
