President Donald trump has signed a new Executive order on Monday that prohibits immigration from 6 countries with a Muslim majority.
New the travel ban occurs within 6 weeks after the initial Executive order trump caused chaos at airports across the country, before it was blocked by the Federal courts. The new ban, which comes into force on 16 March, also explicitly exempts citizens of the 6 banned countries who are legal permanent US resident or have a valid visa to enter USA, including those whose visas have been cancelled during the initial introduction of the ban - said the representatives of the administration.
"We can't jeopardize the safety of our country, allowing visitors to enter when their own governments are unable or unwilling to provide the information necessary for veterinary inspection, or when these governments actively support terrorism," said Monday the attorney General Jeff sessions.
The new measures will allow the citizens of Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen to get a visa for 90 days. The order also suspends the reception of refugees in the United States on 120 days. Trump signed a decree last Monday in the oval office out of sight of the journalists after more than three weeks of repeated delays. Delays also arose in the conditions of intensive lobbying by Iraqi government officials, including the Prime Minister of the country, with the aim to bring Iraq out of the initial list of banned countries the seven States.
Secretary Rex Tillerson said that the expulsion of Iraq from this list occurred after intensive review by the Department of State to improve the verification of Iraqi citizens, in cooperation with the government of Iraq, although he did not specify how it was superior check.
"The United States welcomes such close cooperation," he said. "The revised procedure will strengthen the security of the United States and our allies."
Deploy revised the travel ban marks an important moment for the administration, which does not have the right to error after a chaotic debut of the original plan. This failure has raised questions about the ability of the new White house to rule and to master the political nuances required to manage the complex political efforts in Washington. It also led trump to conflict with the judiciary in the first symptom of the constitutional costs and balances can challenge his vision of a powerful presidency, based on expansive Executive power.
