US President Donald Trump Travel Ban Executive Orders

US President Donald Trump Travel Ban Executive Orders has been issued in key difference in the Trump administration's new Travel ban is that Iraq is no longer on the list. Original ban order was that the US can't properly vet people coming from these countries: America doesn't trust the information it's being given by those foreign countries. According to The Secretary of State, his department and the Iraqi Government have spent the past month working together on more thorough vetting processes.

White House also confirm and says that could include things like biometrics and updated lists on people who are suspected of terror links. President Donald Trump was widely criticised for including Iraq in the first order as Baghdad is a key ally in the fight against Islamic States around the world, and Washington needs to keep the government there onside.

Under the new order citizens from Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Syria and Iran are once again barred from entering the US for 90 days. This time though those who already have a valid visa will be allowed in. The new order still suspends America's refugee program for 120 days but refugees who had been scheduled to travel to the US but have not yet arrived will be allowed in. US President will also be reducing its 2017 refugee intake from 110,000 to 50,000.

The first order came into effect immediately causing chaos and confusion in the US and across the world. This one won't come into effect for 10 days, giving travellers and affected stakeholders time to prepare. Muslim countries are very surprised about this new travel ban order by Donald Trump
