New Executive Order Signed

President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order (EO) relating to visa issuance, screening procedures, and refugees on Jan. 27, 2017. The apparent purpose of this EO is to protect the United States from terrorist acts that could potentially be committed by foreign nationals of certain countries. By limiting entry and visas to certain individuals the EO, titled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” will block admission to the United States for at least 90 days for nationals of seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) who hold nonimmigrant visas, such as tourist visas, student visas, H-1Bs, L-1s, and green card holders.
