Top Trump advisers urged Iraq to be removed from new travel ban


President Donald Trump's Executive Order 13769 placed limits on travel to the US from certain foreign countries, and by all refugees. A federal judge in Washington State issued a temporary restraining order halting the order on February 3, a move that was later upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Feb. 9.

President Donald Trump plans to sign a revised executive order banning travel Wednesday, which is likely to apply only to future visa applicants from seven majority Muslim countries tabbed as terror risks, according to people familiar with the planning.

The officials also said the order will exclude explicit exemption for religious minorities in the countries targeted by the travel ban.

"We want the (executive order) to have its own 'moment, '" a White House official told CNN.

"They're putting out the finishing touches on that executive order". They had urged the White House to reconsider Iraq's inclusion given its key role in fighting the Islamic State group, it added.

The Trump administration was initially expected to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court, but ultimately made a decision to instead pursue a new executive order that could stand legal muster. In the chaotic week after the order was signed, there were protests nationwide at airports and a NY judge issued an emergency stay against the order the following day.

The government initially blocked even USA green card holders before offering those legal permanent residents special permission to come into the country.
