On January 31, 2020, the Trump administration expanded Proclamation 9645 of the President (commonly known as Travel Ban 3.0) to suspend the entry of nationals from the following countries from the United States: Burma (Myanmar), Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania ,
The expanded ban will stop immigrants from Burma and Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria (with the exception of special immigrants who have been supported by the US government) and immigrants with a diversity visa from Sudan and Tanzania.
The Proclamation of President 9645 was originally issued in September 2017 and restricted the entry of immigrants and non-immigrants from Iran (excluding F and M students and J exchange visitors), immigrants and temporary tourist and business visitors from Libya and Yemen, Immigrants and non-immigrants from North Korea and Ireland from Syria and certain government officials and their family members from Venezuela. Chad was included in the original ban, but in April 2018, Proclamation 9723 lifted the visa restrictions previously imposed on Chad.
The Trump administration claims that nationals of countries that are subject to the travel ban are a threat to national security or public security due to inadequate identity management protocols, information sharing practices, and additional risk factors.
Immigrant groups such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) have condemned the intent and impact of the ban. Marketa Lindt, AILA President, said that extending the ban in January 2020 “is an unnecessary and discriminatory barrier for people seeking entry to the United States. Previous bans have had devastating effects, including unnecessary family separation, unfounded visa refusal, lost career and education opportunities, and more. This ban does not protect Americans from an identified national security threat. Rather, it suffocates our diversity, damages our economy and weakens our commitment to equality before the law. “
