The Trump Travel Ban And What It Means For You

The executive order issued earlier this year by President Trump that many refer to as the "travel ban" or "Muslim ban" has left people scared, confused and separated from their loved ones. It is a shameful chapter in the history of the United States, a country built on the principle of religious freedom and tolerance for others' beliefs.

At the Jacksonville, Florida, law firm of Rebecca Black Immigration, PA, we frequently receive questions from people who are fearful that the travel ban will prevent them from seeing family members. We can answer any questions you have about the travel ban and fight to ensure that the government respects your rights.

Who the Ban Covers

Most prominently, the Trump travel ban restricts the travel of certain foreign nationals from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan. Additionally, the order has put a temporary halt to the admission of refugees and capped the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. every year at 50,000.

The travel ban is the subject of numerous court challenges. As these cases progress, the parts of the law that go into effect change. You can count on our attorneys to stay informed on any changes and help you understand how they may affect you.

The order does not restrict the travel of any lawful permanent residents, refugees who have already gained admission to the United States and others who meet certain qualifications. If you are planning to travel internationally or you are preparing for a visit from loved ones who live in the affected countries, you should consider reaching out to a lawyer first.
