President Trump to Issue New Travel Ban Order That Removes Iraqis from List
By Steve Neavling
President Trump is expected to sign a new executive order Monday to replace his previous U.S. travel ban, which was blocked by courts.
Reuters reports that Iraq will be removed from the list of countries targeted in the travel ban.
The order would impose a 90-day ban on travel from the U.S. to six Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Iraq was removed from the original order because of new vetting procedures and its work helping the U.S. combat ISIS.
The new order also isn’t expected to impact tens of thousands of legal permanent residents who are green card holders.
