"It is terrifying for U.S. citizens to think that they may never be able to reunite in person with their loved ones because of this proclamation. The proclamation represents the latest attempt to separate families and undermine due process solely on the basis of cultural and national origin-based bias.

Immigrant rights groups pushed back on the proclamation at the time, arguing that it targeted low-income migrants.

The move is the latest by the Trump administration to limit both legal and illegal immigration.

The administration had previously attempted to create a "public charge" rule that would have made people using designated public benefits less likely to receive green cards. The rule was temporarily blocked this month by a federal judge.
