FAQS on President Trump’s March 6 Executive Order Impacting Refugees & People from Muslim-majority Countries
NOTICE: following district court rulings in Hawaii and Maryland, this March 6th executive order is subject to a nationwide injunction, blocking the section of the EO that barred nationals from the 6 named countries. Therefore, the following guidance is simply to illustrate how the order, if in place, would impact individuals. Currently it is not active, and individuals from the 6 countries are still free to travel.
