People from Myanmar who now live in the American state of Indiana home are feeling the impacts of Washington’s recent travel ban, according to the Indy Channel.
They are getting ready to help their community celebrate Myanmar Union Day, marking 73 years since the southeast Asian country became free of British rule. While they plan to celebrate this culturally significant holiday, the recent addition of Myanmar to The White House's Travel Ban will be hanging over them.
"This is a great concern to the community," Elaisa Vahnie, Burmese American Community Institute Executive Director, told the channel.
He said the travel ban is already impacting people who planned to reunite with their family in the United States.
