The Trump administration's travel ban against passport holders from seven countries is causing problems for some travelers to the U.S. Most recently, it prevented invited speakers from attending this year's Society for Neuroscience meeting in Chicago.
Two groups of immigrants are involved in lawsuits challenging the application of President Trump's travel ban. A group of Yemenis and Iranians who won the U.S. diversity lottery but were nevertheless barred from entering the country are suing in Washington, D.C. Here in San Francisco, a group of 36 plaintiffs argues that the waiver process in the travel ban is a sham.
From the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump has been trying to issue a travel ban against people from certain nations -- mostly majority-Muslim ones. His original ban was overturned by the federal courts, however, largely because it appeared to be unlawfully discriminatory against Muslims. It was replaced with a second version that was also overturned.
