Trump Extends Travel Ban To North Korea And Venezuela
The United States will prohibit entry of citizens from North Korea and Venezuela to the nation as part of a sweeping new travel ban, the Trump administration said on Sunday.
The bans and restrictions do not have any time limits; in effect, they are indefinite.
The new restrictions, slated to go into effect on October 18, resulted from a review after President Donald Trump’s original travel bans were challenged in court.
Trump tweeted Sunday: ‘Making America safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet.’
The addition of North Korea and Venezuela broadens the restrictions from the original, mostly Muslim-majority list.
