BREAKING: Here’s Who Will be Banned from Entering the US, Starting Today

BREAKING: Here’s Who Will be Banned from Entering the US, Starting Today

At 8:00 pm EST tonight, President Trump’s new travel ban will come into effect.

If it hadn’t been plastered all over the news with liberal commentators melting down over the horribleness of using the travel ban list originally proscribed by Obama, then you likely wouldn’t have heard much, or been impacted.

After all, it’s not that often you’re aware that visitors from the six countries on the list are traveling to America to enjoy Disney World. And chances are, even if you own a business that benefits from frequent tourists, these do not make up your biggest customers.

So, here’s the list of countries that will fall under the new Executive Order Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States:

Syria
Sudan
Somalia
Libya
Iran
Yemen

As described by The Daily Caller:

The ban prohibits migrants from six countries with high instances of terrorism … from entering the country without an established, significant connection to the United States.

The Supreme Court stayed several lower court rulings barring enforcement of the president’s order Monday, but provided an exemption for foreign nationals possessing a “bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

As reported by The Associated Press, which obtained cables sent to all embassies:

…State Department said the personal relationships would include a parent, spouse, son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already in the United States. It does not include other relationships such as grandparents, grandchildren, aunts and uncles. On Thursday, the State and Homeland Security departments had both expanded the range of bona fide relationships to include fiancés.

Business or professional links must be “formal, documented and formed in the ordinary course rather than for the purpose of evading” the ban. Journalists, students, workers or lecturers who have valid invitations or employment contracts in the U.S. would be exempt from the ban. The exemption does not apply to those who seek a relationship with an American business or educational institution purely for the purpose of avoiding the rules.

Looks like just another strong tool for enforcement to protect American lives, but we’ll still be hearing all week about racism and Islamophobia.
