State Department: No Current Plans to Expand Travel Ban Beyond Current Countries
In response to rumors of plans to expand the travel ban to other countries, the State Department ("DOS") has informed the American Immigration Lawyers Association ("AILA") that there is no addendum, annex, or amendment now being worked on to expand visa revocations or the travel ban to countries other than those currently implicated in Executive Order 13769, "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States." This includes Colombia and Venezuela, which have been widely rumored to be under consideration. DOS confirmed that there is no information that supports such a rumor and asked that AILA members help end the spread of this false information.
