NEW YORK — The Trump administration has revoked travel permits from more than 100 hotel and restaurants in Florida, including hotels in Palm Beach and Jacksonville, the White House announced Wednesday.
The state of Florida has issued more than 50,000 visas and green cards to U.S. citizens since the travel ban was enacted last month, and the Department of Homeland Security says that number is likely to grow.
The Department of Transportation issued more travel restrictions on Wednesday, as well.
The Department of State has issued visas to more than 10,000 foreigners, according to a news release from the State Department.
The U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said on Wednesday that it had received more than 1,000 complaints of abuse or harassment against foreign nationals in the United States.
The White House said in a statement that it is also rescinding visas for foreign citizens of Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
The new rules do not affect the most recent order signed by President Donald Trump that halted travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, and only affect travelers who have applied for a waiver.
Those travelers will be allowed to stay in the U.U.S., the White Street Journal reported, citing U.K. and Canadian authorities.
