Immigration Nerds Talk About Travel Ban 3.0

In this week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, EIG Managing Director/Attorney Hiba M. Anver joins the conversation to explain the latest iteration of the Travel Ban released by the Trump Administration on Friday, January 31. The new ban would include six additional countries; citizens from Nigeria, Eritrea, Myanmar, and Kyrgyzstan will not be allowed to apply for visas to immigrate to the U.S., and the U.S. gov’t will suspend the issuance of visas that can lead to permanent residency. Additionally, Sudan and Tanzania will be barred from participating in the diversity visa lottery.
