Administration adds UK and Ireland to European Travel Ban

The Administration has announced the addition of the UK and Ireland to the general European travel ban. The same rules will generally apply, with all of the same exemptions which make the utility of such a ban seem so questionable. Among these are exemptions for US citizens and permanent residents, spouses and certain relatives of citizens or permanent residents, military families, airline/ship crew members, and many others.

The new, extended ban will become effective at midnight on Monday.
