Trump Administration Plans to Revise Travel Ban to Avoid Further Appeals Court Review

Sources say a draft of President Trump’s revised travel ban targets the same predominantly Muslim countries listed in the original executive order.

An administration official told the Associated Press that the revised order would target only immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya.

But green card holders and people with dual citizenship to the United States and any of those countries would now be exempt.

The draft will also no longer direct authorities to single out and reject Syrian refugees while processing visa applications.

This comes after an appeals court blocked the original order from being enforced nine days ago.
