President Biden cancels travel ban on Nigeria, others

U.S President Joe Biden signed a series of executive actions to reverse the policies of Donald Trump administration on immigration and others on his first day in office.

Biden issued an executive order to end Trump’s controversial ‘Muslim travel ban’, which blocked travel to the United States from several predominantly Muslim and African countries.

Trump had in February 2020 expanded travel ban to include additional restrictions on citizens of six more countries: Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.

The Muslim Ban initially restricted travel from seven Muslim-majority nations: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from The New York Times reported that President Biden has now directed the State Department to restart immigration visa processing for individuals from the affected countries and to develop ways to address the harm caused to those who were prevented from coming to the United States because of the ban.
