British passport holders in US entry battle as Donald Trump bans travellers from seven Muslim countries and court rules those who arrived with visas can stay

Sunday, 29 January 2017

British citizens travelling to America on UK passports will be blocked from entering if they have dual-citizenship with countries targeted in Donald Trump’s refugees banned. 

The US State Department said that Britons with dual nationality with the countries Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen will be stopped at the American border for the next 90 days. The revelation, which broke late on Saturday night, sent Downing Street scrambling for a response and has triggered uproar from MPs.
