More than 100,000 visas revoked due to immigration ban
1. More than 100,000 visas, according to a Justice Department lawyer, have been revoked due to the implementation of President Donald Trump's immigration ban on seven majority-Muslim countries. This figure was later lowered to 60,000 by a State Department official. Visas are temporary permits to enter the country. No legal permanent residents, or green card holders, have been denied entry. Trump and his administration have argued that the immigration ban is to prevent terrorists from being let into the country. Also, the ban is temporary and is planned to only last 90 days while the administration reviews the vetting process.
2. However, opponents of the immigration ban argue that the nationalities being blocked from entry have no recent connection to terrorism in the United States. Visas have been revoked for people already in the United States, with no notice to the visa holder. Additionally, many people with long-term visas like a work visa or a student visa have likely already been living in the country for several years. Others have also said the implementation of the immigration ban has been messy. Some have even labeled the process as "chaos."
3. So, do you think Trump's immigration ban is effective?
