President Trump has signed a new executive order restricting travel from eight nations: Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Chad, Venezuela and North Korea. The ban, announced on Sunday, is meant to be the permanent replacement of the temporary travel ban issued in January and revised in March. It goes into effect just as parts of the temporary ban expire.
Non-citizens who are married or engaged to be married to citizens or permanent residents can apply to become a U.S. lawful permanent resident with a marriage-based visa or green card. The pathway that is required depends on the current status of the immigrant spouse.
