UPDATE: On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed a new Executive Order that replaces the January 27 Executive Order banning travel from seven Middle Eastern countries and suspending the refugee program. The new order contains significant revisions on the original. The new provisions are as follows.
The order will take effect on March 16, 2017, allowing for a ten-day warning period.
The new order bans entry for 90 days from citizens of Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, and Libya. Iraq was named in the original order. However, that country has since been removed from the list. Iraqi nationals will instead be subject to additional scrutiny.
Legal permanent residents and those who hold valid visas will not be affected by the Executive Order.
Dual nationals who are traveling on a passport from an unaffected country will be exempted.
The Order will not bar travel by individuals whose asylee/refugee applications have already been approved.
The Department of Homeland Security may grant entry on a case-by-case basis to individuals from the six affected countries, particularly where an admitted individual is returning from a trip abroad or where refusal would cause undue hardship.
Syrian refugees will now be subjected to the uniform 120-day ban, instead of an indefinite ban.
The preference for religious minorities in the refugee admissions process has been removed.
All other provisions remain identical.
We are expecting legal challenges to the Order as it goes into effect. PPID will provide updates as they become available.
