Donald Trump to ‘sign new travel ban

The US President’s initial 90 day ban – which applied to citizens from seven Muslim majority countries – caused chaos at the US border until the government was blocked from imposing it.

It is not clear as yet which countries the new order will apply to, or how it will be different, but the suggestion is it may only apply to six nations, with Iraq removed from the list.

As well as Iraq, the original order imposed travel restrictions on  Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and according to the Associated Press those countries could remain on the list.

Politico suggests the new executive order will be signed as early as Monday at the Department of Homeland Security.

It is only a month since the original travel ban caused chaos on across the United States after it was introduced without warning on January 27.

It temporarily banned citizens from countries who were listed for 90 day, but there was initial confusion as to whether green card holders or dual-nationality travellers would be stopped.

It is though some 90,000 valid visas were revoked until a federal judge in Washington blocked the government from carrying out the ban.

Although the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that decision, it could still be appealed to the Supreme Court.

Although the new order has been rumoured for sometime, it is understood it was pushed back last week to distance it from Trump’s speech to Congress on Tuesday.

  1. The far left 9th circus court of appeals is overturned all the time by the Supreme Court. The time it takes for a case filed in the 9th to be heard and decided is an outrage. The wacky political rulings by this court includes the one calling the pledge of allegience unconstitutional. It is time to break up this traveling circus in two.
