President Trump expected to sign new travel ban executive order today – ABC News
The Trump administration is expected to unveil a new travel ban executive order today, senior administration officials tell ABC News.
The new executive order officially revokes and replaces the controversial order signed by President Trump in January and blocked by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last month. The new order has been crafted to withstand legal challenges, exempting permanent legal residents and applying only to future visa applicants, not those who already hold valid visas.
Iraq has been removed from the original list at the urging of the Pentagon and State Department, where officials worried that keeping Iraq on the travel ban list could hinder the U.S. fight against ISIS.
The provision on refugees has also been changed: The new order puts a temporary halt on all refugees entering the United States. The first order applied only to Syrian refugees.
