Trump’s administration to replace travel ban with targeted restrictions

The U.S. is preparing to announce targeted travel restrictions to replace an earlier travel ban aimed at visitors from six Muslim-majority nations, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The Department of Homeland Security is recommending country-by-country restrictions for about nine nations that have not met standards on counter-terrorism efforts and passports, U.S. officials said.

The Supreme Court has, however, allowed a version of President Trump’s travel ban to go into effect while the case proceeds legal system in October.

The travel ban was first announced in January, just days after Trump took office.

The president revised it in March to address legal concerns in an effort to temporarily bar people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U.S.

Trump has vocally defended his position, which opponents argued was discriminatory against Muslims.

The administration argued it wanted time to review visa procedures for the countries.
