The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Trump’s new travel ban, which bars citizens from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for a period of 90 days, is allowed to restart today. Citizens from from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen must now prove they have a parent, sibling, or child in the United States in order to visit. Visas already issued will not be revoked. Journalists, students, workers or lecturers who have employment contracts in the United States are exempt from the ban. [Per Time magazine].
Below is a list, provided by Time magazine, of advocacy groups and legal organizations who can provide assistance to those in need.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) argued on May 9 that the travel ban is a Muslim ban. After the debacle caused by the travel ban earlier this year, donations to the ACLU increased by six times its yearly average in one weekend. The ACLU provides legal assistance.
