Trump's New Travel Ban Beating a Dead Horse

An Iranian lawmaker likened the new immigration ban by US President Donald Trump, which denies entry to citizens of several countries, to beating a dead horse.
"Trump's executive order, being illogical and unusual, has turned the public opinion in the United States against him," Valiollah Nanvakenari, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA on Friday.
The parliamentarian noted that the public opinion about Trump has been negatively influenced by his latest decision and should the US judicial system adopt a wise approach, the reaction against the new decision will be similar to the one against his last order.
Trump on Monday signed a revised executive order to reinstate a ban on travel and immigration from six Muslim countries. The new travel ban blocks entry to the US for citizens of Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya for 90 days.
The lawmaker referred to the removal of Iraq from the list as "a White House tactic" and said, "Although they have permitted Iraqi citizens to enter the United States, this definitely does not signify anything positive about Trump's decision and approach."    
Following Trump's initial ban, Iraqi lawmakers had voted for a travel ban on US citizens.
Tehran has said it will take reciprocal action in the face of the US travel ban on Iranians and refuse visas to US citizens.  
Nanvakenari concluded by reiterating that Trump's measures against the citizens of Muslim countries will lead nowhere.
"Insisting on the same principles will make the United States slip into chaos and compel the system to put Trump aside," he said.
