US under Trump Series: President Trump signs new travel ban with additional countries as old one expires

President Trump has signed a new executive order travel ban that was first initiated on the very first week after his inauguration and created quite a furore not only within the United States but around the world too. The ban also faced several legal challenges in the United States and came finally into force only in March. After several challenges, the Supreme Court of the United States finally sided with President Trump on the majority of the issues that were raised by the opposition. As the ban was about to expire, President Trump has signed a new executive order travel ban. Below are the key highlights from the new order and here is the link to the full statement, https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/09/24/enhancing-vetting-capabilities-and-processes-detecting-attempted-entry

  • Six countries were included in the previous travel ban; Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Sudan. The new order excludes Sudan but includes North Korea, Venezuela, and Chad. For Venezuela, the travel ban largely includes government officials.
  • The ban on North Korea may even impact diplomatic officials visiting the United Nations headquarters in New York.
  • The new ban doesn't impose any ban but increases the vetting on people arriving from there.
  • The new ban will come into effect on October 18th. The Supreme Court will take up legal challenges to the ban in October.
