trump's notorious executive order passed on 27th January met stiff resistance from the American public which was followed by a few judgements by the court allowing passengers in transit and later its withdrawal (though the legal status of the order is still a grey area).

The notorious executive order

The executive order was controversial and led to confusion across airports across the globe. Passengers in transit were detained immediately despite having all valid papers with them. The same evening, an enormous American crowd gathered at JF Kennedy International Airport demanding a removal of the ban.

The revised order

Now it is being said that Trump might soften the harsh executive order which bans entry of immigrants from the following 7 muslim countriesLibya, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Iran. The revised order would permit entry of those who have a valid visa for entry into the US even if it has not been used before. Furthermore, U.S. citizens with a dual citizenship of those countries and valid green card holders would not be troubled by the 27th January immigrant ban order. Though the order has not been made public yet, the reports are quite reliable. Perhaps it might be made official this week.

Staying a little diplomatic while commenting on the proposed draft, Sarah Huckabee Sanders who is the White House spokesperson said that the final version would be released soon for everyone to see.

A lot of controversy surrounds the status of the executive order. It is being contested in various courts in the United States. Rather, many airlines tried to deny the order.

Previously, the Obama administration sought to assimilate Syrian refugees in America. However, Trump somehow managed to restrict the number of refugees permitted to 50,000 per year.

As of present, 35,000 refugees have already been allowed in leaving space for 15,000 more. In short, even if the ban isn't entirely successful, it has at least limited immigration to quite some extent.

John Kelly, who is the Homeland Security Secretary said that since the original ban was too rigid and unfeasible, Trump might try to work out on a 'streamlined' plan to get more approval.
