TRUMP’S REVISED EXECUTIVE ORDER BANS IMMIGRANTS FROM SIX MUSLIM-MAJORITY COUNTRIES. A new ban on travel to the United States was signed by President Donald J. Trump on March 7. Officials of the Trump administration hope the latest step will end all legal challenges concerning the matter. The travel ban is valid for 90 days. It stops new visa assurance of six nations, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Iran, Yemen and Somalia. Other than stopping travel for people arriving in the United States from these countries, it also does away with refugee program followed at present by the United States. The program will have 120 days suspension. The U.S. will now accept only 50,000 refugees per year. This number is much less than the Obama's 110,000 cap.
