Federal Judge Expands List of Qualifying U.S. Relatives for Exemption to Travel Ban

On Thursday, July 14, 2017, a federal district court judge issued a preliminary injunction, preventing the Trump Administration from imposing the travel ban on those who have “…grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.” This expands the list of qualifying relatives, which also includes parents, spouses, children, and siblings, and fiancé/es. More details on the travel ban, and the various exemptions, is available in the MurthyDotCom NewsFlash, Partial Travel Ban Goes Into Effect, DOS Explains Implementation (29.Jun.2017).
