9 Things to Know About Trump’s Revised Travel Ban

Feb 21, 2017, 12:20 pm EDT

President Donald Trump is reportedly almost done with his revised travel ban and information about it is starting to appear.

Here are a few things to know about Trump’s revised travel ban.

    The new travel ban is written to overcome a court ruling that stopped the previous one. It will still include Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen; the same countries from the previous travel ban. Travelers from these countries that already have a visa, Green Card or are dual citizens will be exempt from this travel ban. The revised travel ban will include exemptions for citizens of the seven countries that have aided the military of the United States. The new ban may remove wording that allowed special privileges for members of minority religions in the countries. The Trump’s administration hasn’t revealed anything concrete about the new travel ban yet, but was reportedly drafting it over the weekend. The previous order included an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria, but the new executive order may not include this restriction. However, the order will likely still include the 90 day restriction on citizens and 120-day restriction on refugees from the seven countries in the previous order. Attorneys are already preparing to fight the new executive order, but it may be harder to do if it doesn’t target citizens with legal rights in the United States.
