President Trump's revised travel ban to apply to those seeking new visas

Here are major changes in President Trump's temporary travel ban for a number of majority-Muslim nations to overcome legal challenges that led federal judges to block the original January 27 order. According to a fact sheet obtained by the Associated Press, this new version places a 90-day ban on people from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.

Iraq's exclusion from the new order, DHS said, was the result of the Iraqi government's agreement to "increase cooperation" with American authorities to further vet travelers seeking a visa to enter the U.S.

The order, which takes effect March 16, does not restrict legal permanent residents, or green card holders, from re-entering the USA, the DHS said. Iraq, which had been included in the original travel ban, was removed from the list.

The new order is meant to address "many of the court's concerns", according to an administration official. But in a major defeat, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled February 9 that Trump's initial travel ban would remain suspended.

No doubt for dual citizens: The Jan. 27 order created days of anxiety and confusion for citizens of Canada, Australia and other US allies after the State Department and Homeland Security initial said dual citizens were affected too.

But the administration itself also delayed announcing the new ban.

He has repeatedly said his administration is confident it will win the court case.

While the executive order's premise and goals remain the same, the administration's approach was markedly different as it prepared for a second take.

Another issue confronting the administration is that his original executive order risked violating the due-process rights of foreigners who have a connection with a US resident or institution.

The win was the first for Elliott, who is in just his second season in the Monster Energy Series driving for Hendrick Racing. Keselowski sits atop the odds despite finishing better than 20th just twice in seven career Daytona 500 appearances.

Homeland Security Secretary John F Kelly Kelly said the executive order signed today will make America safer, and address long-overdue concerns about the security of our immigration system.

One senior Department of Justice official said Monday that while they were anticipating challenges, they still believe the original decisions against the ban to be "misguided". Whether the new order fares better will be the next question for the courts.

"We worry that this is going to be much of the same".

Former New York mayor Rudy Guliani claimed Trump had approached him to ask how a "Muslim ban" could be implemented and told him to put together a commission to find "the right way to do it legally". In a break from traditional practices, the officials speaking weren't identified to reporters ahead of the briefing. That court's stay was upheld by the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. "The rollout was ideal".

The new order doesn't ban citizens of Iraq, one of many changes made to an original order in hopes of putting the measures on stronger legal and political footing. But it is not literally a "Muslim ban", since it allows the vast majority of the world's Muslims to continue visiting the United States.

Border agencies, the RCMP and immigration officials have been running scenarios to prepare for an even bigger northward influx when the weather warms up this spring.

During the presidential election campaign previous year, Trump called for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States.

The White House stood firm in its first major legal battle, saying the ban was crucial to preserve national security.

The FBI is investigating 300 people admitted into the United States as refugees as part of 1,000 counter-terrorism probes involving Islamic State or individuals inspired by the militant group, congressional sources told Reuters on Monday, citing senior administration officials.
