White House Considering Expanding Travel Ban, According to Sources

By in Immigration Alerts

According to recent reports, the White House is considering expanding its much-litigated travel ban to even more countries amid a renewed election-year focus on immigration issues.

The expanded ban, according to an anonymous source, could cover several countries that were originally included when President Donald Trump announced the first iteration of the ban by executive order in January 2017, but were later removed amid rounds of litigation.

The most recent iteration of the ban would include restrictions on five nations: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, as well as Venezuela and North Korea.

“The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the effort, which appeared timed for release in conjunction with the third anniversary of Trump’s first travel ban, which was announced on Jan. 27, 2017.”
