Trump Signs New Travel Ban to Replace Rescinded Order

President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Monday blocking the issuance of new visas to citizens of six Middle Eastern countries: Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. The order replaces the one signed in January, which was ultimately blocked by the courts. The new “travel ban” differs from the first one in several key ways, the first of which are the countries affected by the order. Iraq was removed from the original list of seven after U.S. officials warned that it could have a deteriorating effect on our military efforts in the region.

The new order does not affect green card holders or visa recipients or any other legal entrants to the U.S. It applies only to new visitors, and it does not provide for a religious exemption to the refugee aspect of the order. Perhaps most significantly, the order does not go into effect until March 16, giving both individuals and airline security personnel more than a week to make the appropriate arrangements. With the delay, the White House is hoping to avoid the chaotic situation that unfolded after the first, instantly-implemented ban.

In other respects, the ban is very similar to its predecessor. The new moratorium is only scheduled to last 90 days in respect to travel from the six countries, and it puts the entire refugee resettlement program on hold for 120 days. Additionally, it puts a new refugee cap of 50,000 for the fiscal year, down from Obama’s 110,000.

The new order was written with an eye towards what the courts’ ruled last month. By allowing current residents and visa-holders to travel, the White House is hoping to erase any standing a Democratic state administration might hope to claim when suing them. And by removing the exemption for Christian refugees, Trump is hoping to hack away at legal arguments that the order essentially amounts to religious discrimination.

Still, it would shock us if this order didn’t wind up in court just as quickly as the last one. Now it has become a symbolic fight for both sides. The left wants to make it impossible for this president to do anything, and the president wants to cut a clear circle around the powers of the executive branch – and, of course, shore up glaring holes in our national security system. If nothing else, this legal battle certainly clarifies where everyone stands on terrorism.

Not that it was in much doubt.

  1. If Europe and the United States are to survive we need to discriminate against Islam and its 7th century ideology. Stop focusing on the religious aspect of this and focus on Shariah which is Islam. The legal and social structures of the Shariah are illegal in the civilized world thus wholly incompatible with that world.

    • thanks PBHayes, finally ONE person that understands that the world of Islam is not about religion. It is about a way of life that is so wrong that it is incompatible with the rest of the world. They don’t want you to understand their ” religion. ” They only want to kill all infidel’s ( yes, that’s you ) so they can live in a world that is run by shariah,and they will not compromise.

    • You’re exactly right, and It’s striking that the democrat base in the U.S. refuses to grasp the glaring fact that Shariah law is incompatible with a Constitutional Republic where a free and independent people choose their leaders.

    • Amen. In Minnesota and Michigan, the Muslim population is so strong that they have established “Sharia Schools,” and the kids who attend them are NOT taught about the US Constitution, OR any US History.

      Muslims have LONG stated that they “will NOT assimilate” into American society.

      I believe they should be allowed to practice their culture — AS LONG AS IT FOLLOWS THE U.S. RULE OF LAW — but their kids should be required to learn about their new home country, just like everyone else’s kids.

      Yes, Jews have their own schools. However, their curriculum does NOT call for the destruction of the country they live in!! Neither do Christian and Catholic schools.

      • There are 114 Suras or chapters in the Koran with many references to violent jihad. Shariah standing alone would be illegal if they attempted to pass it in any civilized country on this planet. President Trump should move to outlaw all Shariah compliant mosques and schools which account for about 95% of them. The Shariah is Islam and Islam is the Shariah. World domination, never ending war to achieve that domination, zero rights for women, homosexuals, apostates and non Muslims and of course death to all Jews. Just look at what has happened to our country and Europe since 9/11, The Muslims were right, they won.

  2. Pandering to his base with no real action to “keep America safe”. If you want to fear something, fear 35,000 murders in this country every year. None of which are committed by “Muslim terrorists”.

    • But many in Chicago

    • Progressive Republican

      I’m sure that little dose of reality will go over well here on this disreputable dishonest discredited FRWNJ disinformation propaganda site.

      I’m also sure you probably know that already.

      It’s not like the order will actually accomplish what der Schmuckenführer‘s sycophants and assorted toadies wish to believe or anything, but wtfe.

      Keep it up!

    • You are right that we have become a nation with a lot of violence, but it makes no sense to import more from countries whose basic belief system is to not only take away your freedom but to kill you if you don’t ascribe to their form of government. If you do some serious research on the belief system of the countries that have beheaded Christians because thy would not renounce their belief in Christ, you might find that you have a little different outlook. Until you have done that, you are looking at the whole situation from the viewpoint of a person who has lived their life in freedom and you have no concept of the thinning of someone who is so completely intolerant of your freedom.

      • Going to war with people who blow-themselves-up might’ve seemed like it had the potential to end even quicker (!); but was really just a poorly thought-out idea…

    • You need to wake up as to who is doing the Killings , most are converts in the prison system .

    • Whats that, abortions?

    • incorrect that (none) of the murders are committed by muslim terrorists.

  3. Progressive Republican

    Does the fact that we’re not actively fighting 1.7 billion Muslims mean anything to the readers of this disreputable dishonest discredited FRWNJ disinformation propaganda site?

    • Which site are you talking about? I’ve always found that people who throw out incomprehensible acronyms or lengthy abbreviations are trying to hide something.That’s twice that you laid that “FRWNJ” thingy on us without bothering to inform the readers what the hell you’re talking about. Either you’re trying to impress the readers or you simply don’t have a clue. Given that you call yourself “Progressive Republican” it’s probably the latter which has you in a constant state of confusion.

      • Progressive Republican

        So then the answer is apparently “No”.

        You don’t even know what ‘this’ means and I’m confused?

        More F*cking Right-Wing Nut Job projection.

        *shock*

        • I thought so, another clueless, left wing loon pretending he’s sophisticated when he doesn’t know jack-shiite.

  4. Without such restrictions, we’re rolling the dice and putting ourselves in position to have another 9/11 incident.

    • Please explain: Do you think we were in that position during the 8 years of the Obama administration? No new 9/11 happened without these restrictions.

      • Who was POTUS when the Boston Massacre occurred a few years ago? Or the attack at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando this past June? Or when the Muslim Psychiatrist when on a shooting binge at Fort Hood, TX 4 years ago? And, who were the perpetrators? And, what makes you think that something that happened in Nice and Paris, France won’t happen here in the USA unless we do something about our immigration policy? Are you really out of touch w/ these major events?

        • Couldn’t have said it better myself! Maybe Rick D should ask the friends and families of those killed in one of these cowardly attacks how they feel.

          • Thanks for the compliment. See my comment to Oldcamaros that begins with “So”. Feel free to send him your thoughts as well re this subject. Have a blessed day!!

        • Fact is, there was no 9/11 on Obsma

          • Thanks to Clinton!!
            All was planned on CLINTONS watch!

          • Oldcamaros, you are a fool and you don’t even know it. That’s sad.

          • So, let me see if I understand your logic. Because none of the examples of death and destruction I mentioned involved the destruction of the Twin Towers on 9/11/01, then you claim there was “no 9/11 on Obozo’s watch”? So, even though these perpetrators I mentioned had an affinity to ISIS, your’re claiming that Obozo gets a pass because they “weren’t assimilated”? i’m sure that your brilliant logic brings comfort to those families who lost loved ones in such tragedies!! Do you realize how stupid & pathetic you sound?

          • You cannot assimilate someone who refuses to assimilate. This is the case with the majority of Muslim immigrants.

          • And, 9/11 would NOT have happened had Former POTUS Bill Clinton done something about al Qaeda when he was first briefed on them, which was BEFORE the first WTC bombing.

            Bush did NOT cause 9/11, it was NOT a “false flag” event, it was a TERRORIST attack. The US WAS attacked in San Bernardino, Boston, Orlando, Fort Hood, ETC. Death toll is irrelevant. The FACT that you are choosing to ignore is that we DID have NUMEROUS terrorist-related attacks on our soil during the Ovomit administration.

          • Perhaps Bill was pre-occupied with the Lolita Express … and some “pedophilia”!
            Give the guy a Break …

          • You mean like the official WH portrait of him standing in front of a fireplace with a shadow of the blue dress in it??? LOL

          • isn’t there a “getaway” to one of the “islands” where Bubba cavorts? and a 13 years-old claimed she was “raped” by our POTUS!

            and Hillary-ous says TRUMP disrespects women … LOL

          • I think there is. However, President Trump never raped anyone, let alone a 13 year old girl.

            The 13 year old you are probably talking about is the young girl who was so brutally raped that she was never able to have kids, HILLARY defended her rapist, and then LAUGHED about the plight of this young girl.

        • Correction:

          The Ft. Hood Massacre was in 2009. There was a second shooting in 2013, but it turned out to be of a domestic violence type issue. No terrorism was involved in second shooting.

          • You seem to miss my point which is that there is a common thread for each of these incidents. And, that is that the perpetrators were sympathizers of ISIS. Even though they lived in our country, they certainly did not assimilate and accept American principles.

          • I did NOT miss your point at all, sir. I simply corrected your facts. The FACT is that the Army terrorist who murdered people in a terrorist attack at Fort Hood was affiliated with al Qaeda, NOT ISIS. The FACT is that it happened in 2009, NOT 2013. The FACT is that the SECOND shooting at Ft. Hood had NOTHING to do with Islam or ISIS or al Qaeda. It was a “crime of passion” that the shooter tried to cover up as a terrorist lone-wolf attack.

            When Fort Hood happened, ISIS had either not been formed yet OR was a very weak terrorist group. We still had troops in Iraq and the combat mission was ongoing. And, the Fort Hood Shooter was affiliated with Anwar al Awlacki and had been radicalized by listening to HIS podcasts, videos, etc.

            Believe me, I certainly do understand the danger this country faces from terrorism, and I believe that those who did commit those so-called “lone-wolf” attacks did so because they were encouraged to do so by events in the ME today.

            I am a veteran, sir. I am the mom of a soldier who has deployed numerous times.

            YOU stated that the Fort Hood attacks were only “4 years ago.”

            The FACT is that they happened EIGHT years ago.

            I also believe that in our country today, and since 9/11, we have become so complacent or so shocked or whatever you want to call it — and I blame Ovomit — that we simply refuse to believe we are still in danger. Some people are really stupid.

            And it is THOSE very people who, like Ovomit, CHOOSE to believe that people who refuse to assimilate into American culture and society MUST be “mentally defective.” If only it were that simple.

            MY point was partially to correct your misstatement of the facts, but also to agree with you that certain “immigrants” will NEVER assimilate. Muslims are part of this group.

            When I was growing up, I knew Mexican immigrants who refused to learn English.

          • It seems that we are really on the “same page” with regards to most issues. I, too, am a veteran, and I agree with you that Obozo is the main reason we’ve become complacent and minimize the threat that radical Islamist terrorist pose. I appreciate your pointing out my errors with regards to dates of many of the atrocities. Even so, these actions occurred on Obozo’s watch-contrary to the claim of many ignorant & uninformed Dems.

          • Yep. And I don’t think I have EVER lived through a period of presidential politics, if you will, where so many people were living in absolute denial.

            Had the Hildabeast gotten in, it would have been worse.

            Having spent years of my life serving this country, I simply could NOT understand how or even WHY so many people were willing to just turn a blind eye to her many crimes and rampant corruption.

          • Well said. I concur 100%!! I find it interesting that ever since the Crooked One went down in flames, the contributions to the Clinton Foundation have almost totally dried up. You’d think that IF it were a legit. Foundation, the funds would still come pouring in regardless of whether she won the election. I guess if you can’t dispense favors to someone, then you can’t expect them to contribute their funds! LMAO!!

      • We had terror attacks in this country including Boston, and if Clinton had done his job he would have had UBL taken out when he had the chance. Did you know that those Boston muslims were refugees?

    • Damn straight! That’s why Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Lebanon are the first countries on President Trump’s list…oh, never-mind…

      • There is no good answer to your comment. However, Saudi, UAE, and until recent history (1979) Egypt and Lebanon sent people TO military schools in the US. Regardless of how you feel about these countries, the more moderate Muslim countries are IMPORTANT as US Allies. Without them we would have no hope in the ME, and neither would the rest of the world.

        Yes, you can come back with the response about the nationality of the 9/11 hijackers. Most were Saudi Arabian.

        The FACT is, however, that NONE of those people had been living in Saudi Arabia for decades before 9/11. Most of them followed UBL into Afghanistan and the Mujahadeen to oppose the USSR in their invasion of that country. As such, they had no loyalty to their country of origin.

        • Does not matter all muslims are #1 enemy against the world with their satanic cult belief in their mandatory murdering of all that do believe, [“infidels”],&their murderous cult from hell ! No such thing as a good muslim when they believe in their quran ! They convince you that they are your friend until they get what they want then cut your head off … ! Genocide !

      • Remember bo and his cronies created this hell that have to be prosecuted for their many crimes !

  5. How can President Trump keep us safe if the Democrats block every thing he tries to do? PHHays post that i just read is right on target, the powers that be should start looking at things as they are, instead of just oposeing every thing the President is trying to do, they are going to find themselves voted out of office if they continue to destroy our country.

    • Trump can keep us safe like Obama did when the Republicans blocked every thing he tried to do. That has worked out.

      • It worked out that eveything we hold dear was destroyed. Obama did just what he said he would do, he took from the working people and gave it to lazy people who refused to work. He raised the health insurance three fold so the government could pay for the useless lazy people who contributes nothing to the country,He made you buy things you did not need or want , He made it easier to murder your babies, He made it possible for people on welfare to buy smart phones that people working 40 to 60 hours a week could not afford to buy and pay the big monthy fee for,he cut our miletary in half and closed bases all over the country. He gave billions of dollars we do not even have to countries who hate us, That is why we are 20 trillion dollars in debt. He moved millions of dependents from other countries to our country to take even more of taxpayer money. He divided the races and hated the law enforcement, he showed no respect for our fighting men. I can not find one singel thing he did to benifit me in any way.

        • Michael Dennewitz

          I couldn’t have said it better, and if there’s those out there that still believe in the little faggot sumbitch, they’ve been snorting far too much of that shit!! ???

        • You are spot on!! Agree ?

        • Thanks, haz. You took the words right out of my mouth and said it far better that I could…

        • You forgot to mention how he pulled our troops out of Iraq too soon and allowed Isis to rise up and fill the vacuum. Was he really that stupid? Or is he on the side of the enemy? He has the blood of thousands on his hands.

          • warren there are so many things i can’t even remember them all.

          • Sorry, I just brought that one up because I feel that it was especially damaging not just to America but to the world and is what probably got the most people killed.

          • obama is a muslim so of course he is on their side. He also had our military TRAIN the ones running ISIS and gave them money as well as weapons to fight us with.

          • Warren..we all have known and still know that Obungoloid has and is on the enemy side in all these..he has always tried to destroy America! We need to get much tougher and stronger against anybody that is against us especially against president Trump! He needs to be get rid of ASAP!

        • Not only that, Ovomit’s HHS Dept. sent people all over the country to get them signed up for welfare, telling them that they were “not required to work.”

          • I believe this fits into the category of “Wealth Redistribution”?
            Remember “Joe the Plumber”?

        • The only contribution obammy made was to become the most successful GUN SALESMAN ever! You may not thank him for that, but I do!

      • This is life and death Sparky. Obama had two houses of democrats his first year and that’s when he did most of his damage. For the most part the republicans had gone right along with with your failed president. What a wasted 8 years!

      • Wow what the hell universe are you living in??

      • It wasn’t the Republicans who blocked everything Ovomit tried to do.

        He still got plenty done with his illegal pen and phone and his overreach on regulations that will take DECADES to repair.

        BTW: How would you like it if you got a puddle in your front yard, tried to fill it in, and THEN found out that the EPA had declared that puddle a “Protected Wetland” and FINED you over $37,000???

        Yes, the above did happen.

        The MAIN culprit for not working with Ovomit was Ovomit himself. He refused to speak to Republicans, refused to include them in discussions about his political agenda, made over THIRTY FIVE ILLEGAL CHANGES to Ovomit-Lack-of-Care (changes are supposed to be done ONLY by Congress on EVERY spending program), refused to follow immigration law, told the Border Patrol they could NOT protect our border, etc. The list is virtually endless.

        Also, Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, had OVER 300 BILLS sitting on his desk when he retired.

        Why?

        Because they had been passed (most were bipartisan) by a Republican House of Representatives and, because of that, NEVER (flat out REFUSED) brought them to the floor for a vote. He wouldn’t even send them to committee.

  6. Michael Dennewitz

    What is eating away at me the most now is the fact that EXPERTLY TRAINED SPECIALISTS spent days and days scrutinizing the birth certificate of the muslim faggot and their EXPERT opinion is, THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS BOGUS! COPIED AND ALTERED, BUT BOGUS! ! !
    OK America, now what are you going to do????

    • …replace your regular coffee with decaf, for starters…

      • Michael Dennewitz

        ………….she said, just before they chopped off her head!

        • It is not lost on me how fortunate I am to live when and where I do; I am a grateful lady.

          • Still doesn’t stop you from being naively ignorant!!

          • “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more
            surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
            — Samuel Adams

          • True, as long as your idea of “good manners” doesn’t include “political correctness”!!!!!

          • Political Correctness implies deliberate dishonesty; Direct People are Safe People.

            The ability to communicate, effectively and respectfully, different ideas and perspectives on a variety of topics; takes self-awareness, emotional-intelligence, open-mindedness and respect for other people…learned behavior that required years of practical application to become intrinsic qualities that I reflexively default to now…

            Learning how to listen, learning when to compromise; being assertive and persistent, without being aggressive; this has been one of the most important skill-sets to cultivate, and one of the most difficult.

    • They are going to watch their football game and go through life with tunnel vision. “I don’t want to get involved”. Now that is so sad.

    If Trump was a politician he would have never signed this EO to protect Americans, he would have just talked about it and made excuses when he did not fulfill his campaign promises. But, thank God, Trump is not a politician. He has already fulfilled so many of his campaign promises–jobs, eliminating economy crushing regulations, beginnings of replacing the train wreck Obamacare, enforcing the U.S. Immigration laws, hiring new border patrol and ICE officers, having the wall built (currently being planned and engineered), and despite the riots of the leftists and paid, despite the lying demented Democrats and their sycophants the lying, hypocritical news media, Trump is proceeding with his pledge and oath to protect us and set the example for Europe and other areas to follow.

  8. The Democrats want to up set the nation and take Trump down because they built ISIS and have protected ISIS for eight years. They have been the Domestic enemy for many years just not seen till they were able to put into office as President a fraud Islamic Muslim Terrorist to carry out the mission of destroying America and killing all Christians on the face of the Earth

    • I can buy into this explanation … “Domestic Terrorism” IS NOT NEW … just step into an American court.
      <>

  9. WE,as a nation, have the complete right to select who comes in PERIOD. The espaladas majadas are here illegally and need to be thrown bnace across the boarder.
    If you did not fight ot fix your country, you can stay. We have enough freeloaders born here.
    If your country is dangerous, it is your fault for not fighting to change it for the better.
    My hard earned money is not to be give to the third world ethnic silem that is flooding our country

  10. IF these people that come into this great country kill hard working Americans these Judges that struck down Trumps first order should spend the rest of their lives at GTMO!! Is that the way you spell the prison prison in Cuba? I get so tired of these fool judges causing people to be killed because of their stupidity!!!!!

  11. Henry J. Gilbertson

    These stinking diaper heads need to be vetted and made to denounce Shariah and their stinking Prophet Mohommed or face a hanging. I would rather prefer that none of them be allowed to come here

    • I would prefer to go back to the 1952 Immigration law as well. McCarron-Walters Act: “Public Law 414,
      established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the
      immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the
      many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section
      212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an
      organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by
      “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.”

      This, by its very
      definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this
      law is being ignored by the White House.Islamic immigration to the US
      would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the
      Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical
      to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic.”

  12. This travel ban better work this time around. And please, no protesting at all.

  13. time to put real qualifications on anyone who wants to come in and stay. How about you need a college degree and 1 million cash in the bank

  14. Below are some of the many atrocities committed by non-Muslims in America. FEAR mongering and contempt displayed for Muslims serves only to generates disgust and distrust of the dishonorable Trump. America HOME of the BRAVE and LAND of the FREE deserves better.

    America is Home of the Brave and Land of the Free. As one of our greatest president, FDR, stated, “The only thing to fear is FEAR itself!”

    “Courage is knowing what not to fear.” – Plato

    “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ― Plato

    Timothy McVeigh, an Irish Catholic, bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people, he was put to death.

    Adam Lanza, an. Italian, fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    Seung-Hui Cho, an Asian, shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 in the Virginia Tech massacre.

    James Eagan Homes killed 12 people and 70 others were injured at a theater in Aurora, Colorado

    Klebold and Harris killed 13 people and injured 24 others at Columbine High School massacre.

    Dylan Roof, a 21-year-old white supremacist shot and killed 9 people at the Charleston church massacre.

    Perhaps we should FEAR Irish/Italian Catholics, Asians, White supremacists, and those who are profoundly mentally ill like Trump!

  15. Good for president Trump. But it might be already too late. Muslims are already in the country, thanks to the all-inclusive Democrats’ and some no-idea-Republicans. This country is in trouble. We need to let President Donald Trump to do his job. Don’t be stupid people. (I know, that’s asking too much.)
