Trump’s travel ban on six Islamic countries to go into effect from today

Trump’s travel ban on six Islamic countries to go into effect from today
June 29, 2017

WASHINGTON, 29 June: The Donald Trump administration’s “travel ban” to bar citizens of six majority-Muslim countries from entering the US for a period of 90 days will finally go into effect from today (Thursday).
Donald Trump had signed a revised travel ban that would temporarily halt entry to the US for people from six Muslim-majority countries.
Under the presidential order, a 90-day ban on travel to the US will be imposed on citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
After taking oath as US president in January-2017, Donald Trump had issued executive orders to completely block entry of citizens from six Muslim majority countries. However, the Supreme Court had suspended the executive orders.
On Monday, the Supreme Court lifts a block on the executive order, banning many tourists from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the US over the summer.
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that despite rulings in two different federal courts that the ban should be put on hold while judges decide whether it’s constitutional, the Trump administration should be allowed to enforce the ban starting on Thursday, June 29.
