Trump’s NEW travel ban: The President ‘will sign an executive order banning Middle Eastern and African migrants next week’
- Trump is expected to sign the new order at the Department of Homeland Security as early as Monday
- It is not clear what changes Trump plans to make to the revised travel ban
- Iraq will reportedly be taken off the list of seven banned countries given their joint fight against ISIS
- Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen will all remain on the travel ban list
- It comes a month after Trump’s original order caused outrage across the U.S.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign a revised executive order early next week banning travel from several Middle Eastern and African countries.
The president will sign the new executive order at the Department of Homeland Security as early as Monday, Politico reports.
It is not clear what changes Trump plans to make to the revised travel ban.
The Associated Press reported last week that the reboot will only apply to six nations – taking Iraq off the list because it is a close ally to the US in the fight against the ISIS terror army.
Citizens of six other predominantly Muslim countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – will remain on the travel ban list, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Those bans are effective for 90 days.
The new executive order comes just over a month after Trump’s original decree caused controversy across the United States.
It caused chaos at airports when people were detained before being sent back overseas, while others were banned from boarding flights at foreign airports.
Trump’s original January 27 order was widely criticized as amounting to a ban on Muslims, and also for being rolled out sloppily – with virtually no warning to the public or preparation of the agencies tasked with enforcing it.
