In Fiscal Year 2018, the U.S. Department of Statute denied over 37,000 visas due to the Trump Administration’s Travel Ban, also known as the “Muslim Ban.” Of those, 15,384 of those denied were seeking immigrant visas. Even more telling, only 2,673 waivers were approved, or less than 1% of all denials. Although the Supreme Court upheld the Travel Ban (or at least the third version of it), it is important to remember that it was implemented by Executive Order, which could easily be rescinded by a new president.
