Summary

5 Min ReadWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump issued an expanded version of his travel ban on Friday that targets prospective immigrants from Nigeria and five other countries, a move that could affect thousands of people and reignite debate on whether the policy is discriminatory. (Graphic on visas: tmsnrt.rs/36Hy2zz) “These countries, for the most part, want to be helpful,” Wolf said, “but for a variety of different reasons simply failed to meet those minimum requirements that we laid out.” The original travel ban barred nearly all immigrants and travelers from seven countries with majority Muslim populations. In 2015, when he was running for president, Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Three nations included in the updated ban - Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria and Sudan - have majority Muslim populations. Immigrants already in the United States, or who have approved visas will be exempt from the ban, the official said.
