Trump administration says ‘I do’ to adding fiances to travel ban exemptions
At Fox News
The Trump administration has apparently altered its definition of a "bona fide" relationship, adding fiancés of people in the U.S. to its list of people who are exempt from its travel ban from six mainly Muslim nations.
The administration had set criteria for visa applicants from the six nations and all refugees that require a "close" family or business tie to the United States.
The guidelines sent to U.S. embassies and consulates on Wednesday said applicants from the six countries must prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling in the U.S.
The travel ban temporarily barring some citizens of six majority-Muslim countries from coming into the United States went into effect Thursday.
