President Trump’s Muslim Ban 2.0

(Before It's News)

President Trump has signed a new executive order which is a second attempt at the Muslim ban:

“WASHINGTON — President Trump on Monday signed a revised version of his executive order that would for the first time rewrite American immigration policy to bar migrants from predominantly Muslim nations, removing citizens of Iraq from the original travel embargo and scrapping a provision that explicitly protected religious minorities.

The order, which comes about a month after federal judges blocked Mr. Trump’s haphazardly executed ban in January on residents from seven Middle Eastern and African countries, will not affect people who had previously been issued visas — a change that the administration hopes will avoid the chaos, protests and legal challenges that followed the first order. …

The indefinite ban on refugees from Syria also has been reduced to a 120-day ban, requiring review and renewal. The new order retains a temporary ban on all refugees.”

The New York Times has a useful breakdown of the changes from the original ban. It is pretty much the original Muslim ban except for removing Iraq from the list of countries and in how it doesn’t apply to current visa holders. It bans immigration from six Muslim countries.
