Trump May Expand Travel Ban

Feb 2, 2017

Yesterday, Cincinnati's Hammond Law Group published what they claim is a draft of an update to "Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States," the executive order that President Trump signed on Friday, January 25 that instituted what has come to be known as the "Muslim Ban." At this point, we can't independently corroborate this draft, nor can we find anyone else who has this text, so we can't be sure that it is real. According to the Hammond Law Group, "This Executive Order, if signed, may add the following countries to the travel ban implemented on January 25th: Egypt, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Colombia, Venezuela, southern Philippines, trans-Sahara (Mali), and Sulu/Sulawesi Seas Littoral."

Because we can't verify this for ourselves, we simply pass this information along so that anyone who has family or travel in these places can make informed decisions about what might happen in these uncertain times to avoid the pain, heartbreak and confusion of the last weekend.

The rest of the draft appears to clarify processes that were spelled out far too vaguely in the original order. You can read the text here.
