Washington: President Donald Trump is expected to head to the Department of Homeland Security on Monday to sign a new and revised executive order barring immigration from Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
The details of the new executive order haven’t yet been released and it isn’t clear what changes this new order will have in comparison to the original order Trump signed in late January.
That order, which was gutted by federal courts, temporarily halted the United States refugee resettlement programme for 120 days, so the Trump administration could establish a complex vetting process.
The order also temporarily barred people from seven Muslim-majority nations Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen from travelling to or entering the US for 90 days.
