Trump approves updated travel restrictions on 8 countries

Trump approves updated travel restrictions on 8 countries”

Here's what you need to know. But the restrictions apply only to government officials and their relatives, including officials of the ministries of Interior and foreign Affairs, police forces and intelligence services.

Restrictions vary by country, with some countries on the list facing a total ban on US entry, while others will be prohibited from immigrating while being allowed to travel for school. USA visa holders will not be affected.

North Korea, Venezuela and Chad have been added to the list of affected countries which includes Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia. The U.S.is implementing travel limitations and restrictions unique to the foreign nationals of each country.

What is the reason for the restrictions?

In a tweet announcing the extension of the executive order, Trump said: "Making America safe is my number one priority".

The White House said in a statement, "The President has also determined that while Iraq did not meet the baseline, entry restrictions are not warranted under the September 24 proclamation". It includes information on countries worldwide, meaning the president could even extend restrictions to locations not included in the original order.

What is being said about it?

Will Donald Trumps' travel bans serve any goal? Tell @realDonaldTrump that you will not be distracted.

Mr Miles Taylor, counsellor to Ms Duke, yesterday said she has recommended to Mr Trump "actions that are tough and that are tailored, including travel restrictions and enhanced screening for certain countries".

The Supreme Court has already intervened three times since March in limiting the scope of lower court rulings that struck down the March order.

Trump restricted only the travel of government officials and their families in Venezuela, saying the ban was focused on that group because they were "responsible for the identified inadequacies" in sharing information about travelers.

Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif took to Twitter to denounce Trump's mandate, which claims Iran "regularly fails to cooperate with the United States".

The Department of Homeland Security has suggested the president approve new, more focused on limitations on outside nationals from nations it says decline to impart data to the US or, on the other hand haven't avoided potential risk.

The ban does have a lot of support from Trump supporters, with the president calling during his election campaign for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

The addition of two countries that are not muslim-majority allows it to Trump to say that his decree does not expressly refer to the muslims.

But critics alleged that it amounted to Trump's promised "Muslim ban" which courts agreed was unconstitutional because it discriminated against a single religion. Extreme Vetting is necessary!
