Trump Expected to Sign New Travel Ban Order

A revised executive order temporarily barring the entry of people from certain Muslim-majority countries and halting the nation’s refugee program is set to go to US President Donald Trump soon.
A White House official says plans to roll out the order were on track for Monday. The official insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the order ahead of the official announcement, AP reported.
The administration has repeatedly pushed back the signing as it has worked to better coordinate with the agencies that it will need to implement the ban. The new order has been in the works since shortly after a federal court blocked Trump’s initial effort.
Administration officials have said the new order aims to overcome the legal challenges to the first.
Trump’s original orders temporarily blocked citizens of Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya from coming to the United States and put on hold the US refugee program.
The revised order is expected to remove Iraq from the list of countries whose citizens face a 90-day US travel ban. That follows pressure from the Pentagon and State Department, which had urged the White House to reconsider, given Iraq’s key role in fighting the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group.
According to a draft version of the new order outlined to lawmakers late last week, citizens of the other six countries will face the 90-day suspension of visa processing as the administration continues to analyze how to enhance vetting procedures.
Trump signed his original executive order in late January, sparking confusion and anger as travelers were detained at US airports and barred from boarding flights at foreign airports.
The signing is expected to spark a new round of lawsuits and controversy.
