President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban goes into effect at 8 p.m. Thursday. Earlier in the day, Trump administration officials announced guidelines for the president’s ban on travel and immigration from six majority-Muslim countries, which the Supreme Courtpartially reinstated this week.
Under the new restrictions, citizens from Libya, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan will only be allowed entry into the U.S. if they can prove they have a “bona fide relationship” with an entity, or certain family members in the country.
Among the relations deemed “bona fide” are parents, children and siblings. Grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, and other “extended” family members will not be allowed.
To protest the new guidelines, the National Iranian American Council launched the social media hashtag #grandparentsnotterrorists to highlight how the ban could hurt families.
