News video: Relatives of Six Muslim Majority Countries Now Eligible For VisasAccording to a State Department memo, grandparents of U.S. citizens from six Muslim-majority countries are now eligible to receive U.S. visas. The memo from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was sent to all U.S. diplomatic posts overseas on Friday. The memo comes after a U.S. district judge in Hawaii issued a ruling on Thursday to limit the scope of the administration's temporary ban on refugees and travelers from the six countries. A U.S. District in Honolulu found that the government cannot bar grandparents and other relatives of United States citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from getting visas under the ban. The cable has since been reversed by the State Department, making them them eligible for visas.
