News Briefs On The Latest Immigration Executive Orders and Actual Enforcement Policies

By Michael H. Markovitch, Esq. on January, 31, 2017

The Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch will be providing relevant news bulletins regarding the  recently enacted travel ban for certain foreign nationals.  These bulletins will be posted as soon as they are released by the Department of Homeland Security.
 
As of January 30, 2017, please note the following:
 
The following update has been provided from Department Of Homeland Security 
 
Relevant portions include:
 
"For the next 90 days, nearly all travelers, except U.S. citizens, traveling on passports from Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen will be temporarily suspended from entry to the United States. The 90 day period will allow for proper review and establishment of standards to prevent terrorist or criminal infiltration by foreign nationals.
 
Importantly, however, Lawful Permanent Residents of the United States traveling on a valid I-551 will be allowed to board U.S. bound aircraft and will be assessed for exceptions at arrival ports of entry, as appropriate.  The entry of these individuals, subject to national security checks, is in the national interest. Therefore, we expect swift entry for these individuals.
 
In the first 30 days, DHS will perform a global country-by-country review of the information each country provides when their citizens apply for a U.S. visa or immigration benefit. Countries will then have 60 days to comply with any requests from the U.S. government to update or improve the quality of the information they provide." 
 
Rest assured that we will keep you informed of all the changes which will be talking place.
 
For further information or questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact The Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch.
