Title 3--
The President

[[Page 44751]]

                Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011

 
                Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United 
                Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In light of the firm commitment of the United States to 
                the preservation of international peace and security 
                and our obligations under the United Nations Charter to 
                carry out the decisions of the United Nations Security 
                Council imposed under Chapter VII, I have determined 
                that it is in the interests of the United States to 
                suspend the entry into the United States, as immigrants 
                or nonimmigrants, of aliens who are subject to United 
                Nations Security Council travel bans as of the date of 
                this proclamation. I have further determined that the 
                interests of the United States are served by suspending 
                the entry into the United States, as immigrants or 
                nonimmigrants, of aliens whose property and interests 
                in property have been blocked by an Executive Order 
                issued in whole or in part pursuant to the President's 
                authority under the International Emergency Economic 
                Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.).

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, by the authority 
                vested in me as President by the Constitution and the 
                laws of the United States of America, including section 
                212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, 
                as amended (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)), and section 301 of title 
                3, United States Code hereby find that the unrestricted 
                immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States 
                of persons described in section 1 of this proclamation 
                would be detrimental to the interests of the United 
                States. I therefore hereby proclaim that:

                Section 1. The entry into the United States, as 
                immigrants or nonimmigrants, of the following persons 
                is hereby suspended:

                    (a) Any alien who meets one or more of the specific 
                criteria for the imposition of a travel ban provided 
                for in a United Nations Security Council resolution 
                referenced in Annex A to this proclamation.
                    (b) Any alien who meets one or more of the specific 
                criteria contained in an Executive Order referenced in 
                Annex B to this proclamation.

                Sec. 2. Persons covered by section 1 of this 
                proclamation shall be identified by the Secretary of 
                State or the Secretary's designee, in his or her sole 
                discretion, pursuant to such standards and procedures 
                as the Secretary may establish.

                Sec. 3. The Secretary of State shall have 
                responsibility for implementing this proclamation 
                pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary, in 
                consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and 
                Secretary of Homeland Security, may establish.

                Sec. 4. Section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply 
                with respect to any person otherwise covered by section 
                1 where entry of the person into the United States 
                would not be contrary to the interests of the United 
                States, as determined by the Secretary of State. In 
                exercising the functions and authorities in the 
                previous sentence, the Secretary of State shall consult

[[Page 44752]]

                the Secretary of Homeland Security on matters related 
                to admissibility or inadmissibility within the 
                authority of the Secretary of Homeland Security.

                Sec. 5. Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed 
                to require actions that would be inconsistent with the 
                United States obligations under applicable 
                international agreements.

                Sec. 6. This proclamation is not intended to, and does 
                not, create any right or benefit, substantive or 
                procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any 
                party against the United States, its departments, 
                agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or 
                agents, or any other person.

                Sec. 7. This proclamation is effective immediately and 
                shall remain in effect until such time as the Secretary 
                of State determines that it is no longer necessary and 
                should be terminated, either in whole or in part. Any 
                such termination shall become effective upon 
                publication in the Federal Register.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-fourth day of July, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand eleven, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)
