MORE THAN 100,000 VISAS REVOKED UNDER TRUMP'S TRAVEL BAN
More than 100,000 Visas have been revoked under Trump's travel ban on citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, The Washington Post and NBC News reported on Friday. A government attorney cited the figure at a federal court hearing over a new lawsuit filed by Virginia against the Trump administration's immigration order. The State Department disputed that figure and said the number of visas revoked was roughly 60,000. The revocation has no impact on the legal status of people already in the US. If those people leave the US, though, their visas would no longer be valid. Meanwhile Trump issues sanctions on Iran over ballistic missile test.
