Do You Agree With President Trump’s New Travel Ban? [POLL]
President Donald Trump issued a new executive order on Monday that won't take effect for ten days.
The new executive order is meant to replace the travel ban that President Trump had initially signed. The new order will have no impact on those with green cards or visas currently. It will also only place a temporary ban on six countries, according to FOX News:
The new order also will ban travelers from six countries who did not obtain a visa before Jan. 27 from entering the United States for 90 days. The directive no longer includes Iraq, as the original order did, but covers immigration and travel from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Iraq, a key U.S. ally in the fight against ISIS, was removed from the travel ban list after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he spoke with the Iraqi government about its vetting process and felt that the screening system was thorough enough to stand on its own.
The new order also suspends refugee entries for 120 days, but Syrian refugees are no longer banned indefinitely. The order will also cap the number of refugees at 50,000, which is far less than the 110,000 accepted by the Obama administration.
