REVISED TRAVEL BAN

Unlike the previous ban, the new directive does not include Iraq

in its list of countries targeted. The effective date for the

Revised Travel Ban is: March 16, 2017

3 PRIMARY REASONS FOR THE TRAVEL BAN REVISION

  1. CLARIFY MIX

    MESSAGING– Original travel ban reflected a

    "negative message" about the future of how Iraq and the

    U.S. will work together to eliminate ISIL

  2. GOVERNMENT AGENCY

    PRESSURE-Pentagon and State Department urged the White

    House to reconsider given Iraq's key role in fighting the

    ISIL

  3. MINIMIZE DOMESTIC &

    INTERNATIONAL CHAOS- provides the government agencies time

    to identify how they will properly vet foreign nationals traveling

    from the remaining 6 countries to alleviate domestic /

    international confusion resulting in protests and airport

    chaos

OPPOSING OPINION OF REVISED TRAVEL BAN:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said the new ban was a

"scaled-back version that shares the same fatal

flaws".

SUPPORTING OPINION OF REVISED TRAVEL BAN:

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared the renewed ban is

"a vital measure for strengthening our national

security".
