Full enforcement of President’s Travel Ban
On December 5, 2017, the Supreme Court granted President Trump’s request to fully enforce his revised order banning travel to the United States by residents of Muslin majority nations.
With these Supreme Court unsigned orders, appeals courts will determine whether the latest ban is lawful. The administration can enforce its new restrictions on travel from eight nations, six of them predominantly Muslim. For now, most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea will be barred from entering the United States, along with some politically associated groups of people from Venezuela.
This is not a final ruling on the travel ban but certainly indicates that the Supreme Court may well approve the latest version of the ban. This policy will still have to be viewed through the lower courts.
The restrictions vary in the specifics, but in most cases, citizens of those countries will be unable to immigrate to the United States permanently and many will be barred from working, studying or vacationing here.
Opponents of this and previous versions of the ban say they show a bias against Muslims.
When you consult with an immigration attorney it is important that you are able to speak with an actual attorney.
No one besides an attorney is able to give you legal advice, even an attorney’s assistant cannot give you legal advice, you must speak with an actual licensed attorney.
You must also be able to understand the attorney. The attorney must either speak a language you understand or have a competent interpreter that will allow you to understand what the attorney is saying.
If you cannot communicate with the attorney they will not be able to provide you safe advice. Never hire an attorney that you have not spoken with.
