"Who's in and who's left out as Trump travel ban takes effect" PBS NewsHour 6/29/2017


SUMMARY:  President Trump's executive order banning entry into the U.S. from six majority-Muslim countries finally takes effect Thursday after months of legal and political wrangling.  The Supreme Court issued a partial green light earlier this week by only allowing those with “bona fide” family or business ties to be allowed in.  Judy Woodruff learns more from Yeganeh Torbati of Reuters.
