Dear Community Members and Friends,
A new "Muslim Ban" Executive Order was signed on Monday, March 6, 2017.
We are reviewing it to see how exactly it will be rolled out but some general information is below. Please note that this information is subject to change based on the various lawsuits that may move forward in court.
When will it start?
The new Executive Order will not go into effect until March 16, 2017. The older order, signed on January 27, 2017, was revoked and replaced with this new order. Regardless, the temporary court order placing the older order on hold is still active.
Who will be affected by this?
Travel Restriction for Nationals of Six Countries
