It will no longer include the country of Iraq.
President Trump’s aide Kellyanne Conway on Monday said the new immigration executive order will take effect March 16 and will no longer include Iraq.
“This is a very important week in this White House where the president is going to continue to act on, along with the Congress, major pieces of his legislative and executive agenda,” Conway said Monday morning on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”
“That includes a new executive order today … and what’s different about it, it has an effective date of March 16, and there are the legal permanent residents were always excluded from it but that’s made much more clear now,” she continued.
“If you have travel docs, if you actually have a visa, if you’re a legal permanent resident, you are not covered under this particular executive action.”
Conway added that Iraq is no longer included in the travel ban, based on “their enhanced screening and reporting measures.”
