Trump expands travel restrictions on DPRK, Venezuela, Chad

26 Septembre 2017

There will be enhanced vetting procedures and new restrictions for four new countries that have been found not to be in compliance with USA vetting procedures - Chad, Iraq, North Korea and Venezuela.

The US will also stop entry of citizens from Iran, Chad, Libya, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Somalia.

The new restrictions, according to senior administration officials, were a result of a worldwide review based on a new baseline for information sharing and for vetting procedures for those seeking entry into the U.S.

There are some exceptions for nationals from the eight countries who have "bona fide" connections to the US, though narrower than what was ordered by the Supreme Court in its temporary ruling on the travel ban.

The US president's temporary ban on travel, which affected people from six majority-Muslim countries for 90 days, came to an end on Sunday. Trump just released Muslim Ban 3.0, late on a Sunday night.

The Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to add or remove travel restrictions on countries as conditions change, a senior administration official said. That measure took effect on September 1 in the wake of the death of an American college student who fell into a coma shortly after being detained in Pyongyang past year.

The Supreme Court has already intervened three times since March in limiting the scope of lower court rulings that struck down the March order.

Almost 200 countries were evaluated, with Trump saying that the countries subject to the ban remain deficient with respect to their identity-management and information-sharing capabilities. In a proclamation signed by President Trump on Sunday, the travel restrictions now include eight countries, a couple of which are not majority-Muslim, as had been the case with all the nations in the original ban. Trump had called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" during his campaign. We will not admit those into our country we can not safely vet,"Trump Twitted".

The March 6 order was itself Trump's second attempt to impose a travel ban after his original, much broader Jan 27 plan was blocked by the lower court following turmoil at USA airports caused by its abrupt rollout. Mr. Trump had cut the number of refugees to be admitted to the US this year by more than half, had imposed a 120-day pause on most refugees and instituted a complete ban on Syrian refugees.

Miles Taylor, counselor to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, said: "The goal is not to indefinitely block certain nationals from coming to the United States". Citing an attack in London, Trump wrote on Twitter, "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific - but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"
