    Legal Permanent Residents from banned countries can return. But will be a slow, inconvenient process. 

    The current immigration ban for Syria, Iran and 5 other middle east countries are causing panic, fear and chaos for travelers today, leading to protests at U.S international airports.

    The ban as explained by the administration is to improve “vetting” of those seeking to immigrate or visit from those listed countries who the administration accuses of harboring, endorsing, or failing to deter radicalism and terrorism.

    Currently those with a U.S visa from the countries listed can re-enter, however, they will have to go to the U.S consulate and determine if they are eligible. The consulate has said that they will treat those seeking to return on a “case by case basis” and that they are moving “expeditiously” in the process. 

    News reports from various sources have been incorrect on this report, claiming that all visa holders from these countries are banned. 

    That is not so. What’s true is that they will have to go through a few hurdles before traveling back.

    Update: U.S District Court has ruled visa holders and approved refugees cannot be detained or prevented from entering the country.

    Can Trump legally impose an immigration ban to certain countries? Looks like he can. 

    The “immigration ban” calling for a number of countries to have certain restrictions on immigrating to the U.S. Has many people asking if the policy is actually legal. 

    From what the constitution says, that is correct. Federal Law U.S.C 1182 (f) states;

    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” (breitbart.com)

    The law gives the President the authority to follow through with his policy. Since he is using his executive powers, he bypasses Congress’s approval in implementing it.

    Those oppose could address the fact that the President in his rethoric called for a ban on Muslims and question the legality of his plans. The United States cannot discriminate or prevent someone from legally immigrating solely on the basis of religion.

    The administration and other supporters argue that it is a way to ensure national security and that the countries noted in the ban have a history of fostering, restraining  and even supporting terrorism.
