President Donald Trump issued a proclamation restricting travel into the United States from non-citizens who were present in Iran during the 14-day preceding their attempted entry into the United States. The specific individuals this proclamation applies to are delineated on p. 3-5 of the public inspection copy.
The proclamation states that allowing unrestricted travel into the United States would be “detrimental to the interests” of the nation. It adds that it does not affect individuals’ eligibility for asylum, or protection under the regulations issued pursuant to the legislation implementing the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
The proclamation is effective March 2, 2020 and will remain in effect until terminated by the President.
