Trump Considering Adding Nine Additional Countries to Travel Ban

Continuing with its efforts to prioritize national security, the Trump administration is considering adding nine additional countries to its travel ban, according to the Washington Examiner. 

The current travel ban lists six countries – Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen — from areas engulfed in terrorist activities and bars refugees from coming to the U.S. for 120 days.

With the current policy set to expire Sept. 24, the administration is preparing to present a new travel ban that will reportedly include additional countries the administration believes poses a security threat to the U.S.

The Examiner reported that the Department of Homeland Security determined that 17 unnamed countries “have failed to meet U.S. standards for screening travelers,” adding that these countries have “ignored other government mandates.”

The Wall Street Journal reported roughly half of the 17 countries have made changes to adhere to U.S. security policies, but the other countries haven’t made any of the necessary changes.

While the remaining eight or nine nations won’t be completely barred from allowing its citizens to travel to the U.S., the administration is reportedly considering placing stricter visa bans and other restrictions on these nations.

The eight or nine countries will reportedly have the restrictions lifted once they ensure they have made the necessary changes to meet all U.S. security standards.

Despite the Supreme Court already ruling the Trump administration’s travel ban was legal, a lower court recently ruled that the administration couldn’t enact a specific section in the ban that prevented refugees who are currently in the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program or have prior commitments from other resettlement agencies.

The lower court also ruled that Trump’s temporary executive order wouldn’t be permitted to bar grandparents, aunts, uncles and other extended family members of a person already living in the U.S.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to begin hearing oral arguments on the travel ban on Oct. 10.

Following the recent terrorist attack in London, Trump called for a “far larger, tougher and more specific” travel ban.

Trump slammed the terrorists and renewed calls for the importance of increasing national security measures.

“Another attack in London by a loser terrorist.These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” Trump tweet.

He continued: “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!”
