Trump Travel Restrictions

A press release from the Federal government:


WASHINGTON – The Department of Homeland Security, in coordination with the Departments of State and Justice, will begin the implementation of certain travel restriction provisions in the President’s Executive Order: Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States at 8 pm EDT today.

Per the Executive Order and the associated June 14 Presidential Memorandum, the temporary suspension of entry applies, with limited exceptions, only to foreign nationals from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen, who are outside the United States as of June 26, who did not have a valid visa at 5 p.m. EST on January 27, and who do not have a valid visa as of 8 p.m. EDT on June 29.

For purposes of enforcement of Executive Order No. 13780, visas that have been issued by the Department of State prior to the effective date of the Executive Order -June 29 at 8 p.m. EDT- are to be considered as valid for travel and seeking entry into the United States unless revoked on a basis unrelated to EO 13780.

Persons from the six countries presenting themselves for entry with a valid previously issued visa and who meet other universally applied entry requirements will be admitted.

The Department expects business as usual at our ports of entry upon implementation of the EO today. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers are trained and prepared to professionally process in accordance with the laws of the United States persons with valid visas who present themselves for entry. We expect no disruptions to service.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, in coordination with the Departments of State and Justice, has provided guidance to its workforce regarding the adjudication of refugee applications to ensure proper implementation of EO 13780 in light of the Supreme Court’s order.

It remains true at all times that all individuals seeking entry to the United States remain subject to all laws governing entry into the U.S., including all rules and regulations promulgated pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act, and any other relevant statutory authority and all extant presidential orders and directives.

The Executive Order’s Travel Restrictions do not apply to:

(a) Lawful permanent residents;
(b) Any foreign national admitted to or paroled into the United States on or after June 26, 2017;
(c) Non-Immigrant visa classifications: A-1, A-2, NATO 1 though NATO 6, C-2, C-3, G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4;
(d) Any foreign national who has been granted asylum, any refugee who has already been admitted to the United States, or any individual who has been granted withholding of removal or protection under the Convention Against Torture;
(e) Any foreign national who has a document other than a visa, valid on June 26, 2017 or issued on any date thereafter, that permits him or her to travel to the United States and seek entry or admission, such as an advance parole document;
(f) Aliens who present at the port of entry boarding foils, including YY or ZZ boarding foils, or transportation letters, including those documents issued to follow-to-join asylees.
(g) Any dual national of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen who is traveling on a passport issued by a country other than one of those six countries.
(h) Any national who has obtained a waiver pursuant to the terms of the EO or any individual covered by the portion of the injunction not stayed by the Supreme Court’s decision, i.e., “foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
(i) Any individual seeking admission as a refugee who, before 8 p.m. EDT on June 29, 2017, was formally scheduled for transit by the Department of State. After 8 p.m. EDT on June 29, 2017, if a first-time refugee is issued travel documents, those documents are evidence that the refugee has been cleared for travel and the EO will not apply.

  1. Obama was seen today at a local Subaru dealership trying to by a new legacy.


  2. He had a busy day.

    Glad to see this went thru. Obama did the same thing yet not a peep out of the Left.

    Keeping the country safe is his job. Following immigration law and enforcing the is his job.

    His healthcare passed in the house today too. All this in between twitter feed.



  3. I don’t think that was healtchcare, Semper.

    I think you are talking about Kate’s Law.

    Something that Angel will be over the moon angry about.

  4. Ahhh the people who live in fear are active in McHenry Backwoods County.

  5. Don’t be snide and ignorant DMAC, you lock your doors at night, don’t you?

  6. Most people who live in McHenry County attend events in Chicago or visit it with family at some point.

    Chicago is an obvious target for terrorism.

    All measures to reduce the chance of innocents being slaughtered must be taken.

    I am not in favor of bans but sometimes they need to be enforced.

    These are the times we live in.

  7. DMAC57 typical hypocrite of the left.

    Unless of course you provide your address and remove all locks from your doors so any undocumented guests can call your home home.

    Don’t forget to stock your fridge as no child should be hungry.

    While you’re at it please stock your garage with beer and keep the door open so the community can share.

    It’s only fair you live what you preach.

  8. Native Americans mistakenly forgot to ban white europeans from North America. Very convincing the argument of bans being necessary…or not? Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  9. Angel, your hairnet on too tight?

    I think you just admitted that we are ripe for a take-over.


    Thus the ban!

    Thanks for confirmation that this is what Trump is obligated to do!

  10. @angel.

    American Indians displaced prior populations as well.

    Usually through slavery and outright genocide.

    Unfortunately your ignorance to history allows you think your clever.

    Tic tic indeed.

  11. Get ready for the next episode of this nonsense history lesson only found in our very own sunshine blog. Next chapter, African Americans are responsible for their enslavement in America the beautiful. Additionally, they were better off as slaves than as free human beings. Sit back, relax, and enjoy compassionate conservative covfefe american history…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  12. Please tell us you don’t teach history, Angel.
    Your simplistic, sophomoric beliefs are truly delusional.

  13. According to our compassionate conservative friends, it is now the Native Americans who should be blamed for genocide. I suppose what white Europeans did to Native Americans was just preemptive safety measures to avoid suffering the same fate. Lucky you, casual reader, if you found in this sunshine blog the best and most reliable source of knowledge in American history. 2018, is that you knocking at the door? Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  14. Oh Angel, your ignorance and stupidity are on full display. Tic tic

  15. I pray to God Angel is not teaching kids.

    Read some books and learn the bigger picture.

  16. Let us pray: Oh Lord Jesus, please forgive the Native Americans and all natives from this great continent for the genocide they committed in your name. And may you bless this great United States of America only. Amen. Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  17. Keep talking, you just prove our point with every childish word.

    Please educate yourself.

  18. Let us pray: Oh Lord Jesus, we praise and honor you for letting big oil interests build the Dakota Access Pipeline as environmentally friendly and fair retribution for the genocide native Americans committed in your name. May you only bless the United States of America. Leave the rest of the world to Allah. Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  19. Let us pray: Oh Lord Jesus, please enlighten our president tronald dump to use one of our MOAB’s on those genocidal native americans; all for your glory…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  20. I have to admit sometimes I read this blog more often just to see what nonsense Angel the bleeding heart glass house dweller has to spew on us today.

    It makes this blog both informative AND entertaining!
