Where Is The Full Text Of The Executive Order?

It can be found here at the Government Publishing Office.

When Was This Executive Order Signed?

January 27, 2017.

What's The Current Status Of The Order?

A ruling on Feb 3, 2017 from Seattle, Washington by Judge James Robart, led by lawwsuits from Minnesota and Washington, has temporarily blocked many aspects of the order nationwide including the ban on all seven countries and the unsuspension of the Refugee Admissions program. The cap on refugees still exists. More court battles are planned and expected from both sides and more states like Hawaii are also bringing suit against the travel ban.

The 9th Circuit panel has unanimously ruled (as of 2/9/2017) that the travel ban will not be re-instated while courts consider its lawfulness.

On March 6th, 2017 a new Executive Order was signed by the White House which looks to implement a new version of this travel ban.

In Essence What Does The Executive Order Do?

There are two main pieces:

1. It bans travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries from coming into the United States, including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya. The ban is for 90 days, will be re-evaluated, and could continue past the 90 days permanently, with more countries being added. For Syria the ban is indefinite until further notice.

2. Suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days and limits new refugees to 50,000 once the refugee program is unsuspended.

Does The Travel Ban Affect Green Card Holders?

Yes and No. While green card holders from the currently seven banned countries can travel into the U.S. (which was not the case initially) they will still be subject to "national security checks" and will be "assessed for exceptions at arrival ports of entry, as appropriate". Even though individuals may have done nothing wrong they will be subject to extra scrutiny as if they may have.

Is There A Religious Component?

Yes. There is a provision in the Executive Order that would give priority to religious minorities. In many cases this would favor non-Muslim individuals.

What Countries Are Affected By The Refugee Suspension And Limits?

According to the U.S. Department Of State there were 84,994 new refugees admitted into the United States from 78 countries in 2016. 9,020 were from Somalia. 12,347 were from Burma. 9,880 were from Iraq.
