Trump administration readies new order to replace travel ban

The proclamation, which will go into effect on October 18, expands the list of countries to include residents from the following countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Chad, Venezuela and North Korea.

Seven of the countries face wide-ranging restrictions, while the limits imposed on Venezuela will only apply to a group of government officials and their families.

The Department of Homeland Security's plan would replace U.S. President Donald Trump's earlier executive order that banned travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and limited refugee admissions.

Donald Trump opened himself to what could be a new wave of legal challenges with a revised travel ban that adds three countries to the list of nations facing restrictions on entering the United States.

The restrictions, which will start on 18 October, are targeted at countries that Department of Homeland Security officials say refuse to share information with the U.S. or have not taken necessary security precautions.

Blount had a rumbling 17-yard run early in the drive, and Wentz later kept it going with an 11-yard scramble on third-and-8. Manning then connected over the middle to Shepard, who broke a couple of tackles and sprinted all the way for a 21-14 lead.

The United States then shared those benchmarks with every country in the world and gave them 50 days to comply. After that date, the new restrictions will begin.

The March 6 order was itself Trump's second attempt to impose a travel ban after his original, much broader January 27 plan was blocked by lower court following turmoil at US airports caused by its abrupt rollout.

According to the Washington Post, senior administration officials said Sudan's co-operation on these issues "showed it was appropriate to remove it from the list".

The original countries were Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

"The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific", he said.

Trudeau refuses to weigh in on Kurdish independence, cites Quebec experience
According to the IHREC, more than 5 million people are eligible to vote in the Kurdistan Region's independence referendum. Also Sunday, Iran closed its airspace to flights taking off from Iraq's Kurdish region following a request from Baghdad.

For instance, foreign nationals from North Korea are banned, but a student from Iran will be allowed in, subject to "enhanced screening and vetting requirements", CNN quoted the White House statement as saying.

There were roughly 15 countries that were flagged by DHS and alerted by State, CBS News' Margaret Brennan reported, and that number included the six already affected by the prior travel ban.

Trump had called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" during his election campaign. He said the State Department would co-ordinate with other federal agencies to implement the measures in "an orderly manner" and would "continue to work closely with our allies and partners who share our commitment to national and global security".

The Supreme Court will hear arguments on October 10 on whether the current ban discriminates against Muslims in violation of the US Constitution, as lower courts previously ruled.
