US: Trump administration announces new travel restrictions on certain foreigners

WEB DESK

TRUMP DONALDThe United States has expanded its controversial travel ban to people from North Korea, Venezuela and Chad. The White House said the restrictions follow a review of information sharing by foreign governments.

US President Donald Trump issued a presidential proclamation late last night. He said making America safe is his number one priority. He said US will not admit those into the country whom it cannot safely vet.

The restrictions on Venezuelans apply only to government officials and their family members.

The three new countries join five others from Mr Trump’s original travel ban on Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. But the new proclamation removed restrictions that were placed on Sudan.

Mr Trump’s original ban was highly controversial, as it affected six majority-Muslim countries, and was widely labelled a Muslim ban. The addition of North Korea and Venezuela now means that not all nations on the list are majority-Muslim.

The criteria for the new ban list is now based on vetting procedures and co-operation, and the restrictions have now been tailored on a country-by-country basis.
