The US President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed 17 executive orders memorandums and proclamations including ending the Muslim travel ban.
You will recall Mandy News reported former President Donald Trump when he first entered office imposed travel on Muslim nations. Biden signed an executive order ending the travel ban on citizens from more than a dozen countries, including Eritrea, Nigeria, Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The restrictions were applied to anyone trying to enter the US as a refugee. The guidelines were sent to all US embassies and consulates around the world on June 28, 2017.
Today Joe Biden removed the travel ban on some Muslim and African nations and this raises the question, “can Nigeria travel to the USA now?”
The answer is you can’t travel out of Nigeria now. Avideh Moussavian, the legislative director for the National Immigration Law Center say there’s hard work ahead and legal experts say it should be relatively easy for Biden to end the travel ban on Day 1 of his administration, as he has promised. The policy was created by executive order, and it can be reversed in much the same way.
“It’s not just what they can do with the stroke of the pen,” he says.
