Why Trump’s new travel ban on foreign travel is likely to fail
The White House said Monday that President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban will not withstand legal challenges from the Department of Homeland Security and airlines.
Trump issued the travel ban late Sunday evening after a nationwide manhunt that spanned six states, with multiple people dead.
The order suspends refugee admissions and restricts travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
It also bans the entry of nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
The ban also bars refugees from Iran and Iraq for 90 days.
Trump’s executive order temporarily banned the entry to the U.S. of people from Iran, Libya and Somalia for 90-days.
It bars refugees for 90 consecutive days.
The White, House and State Department had issued a joint statement Monday morning saying that the ban would be fully implemented as scheduled.
