Supreme Court cancels travel ban hearing as new restrictions announced

The restrictions on Venezuela were limited to officials from a list of government agencies and their families, while full travel bans were placed on nationals from the other seven countries, including North Korea and Chad.

"Making America Safe is my No. 1 priority".

President Donald Trump has signed a proclamation imposing strict new restrictions on travellers from a handful of countries, including five that were covered by his expiring travel ban. "We will not admit those into our country we can not safely vet", Trump tweeted late Sunday after the new policy was announced.

After considerable advance speculation, the president has issued a new travel restriction order to replace most of the highly controversial and much-litigated temporary order issued in January and revised in March.

"These changes are set to take effect on October 18, though the restrictions on Sudan will be lifted immediately, as a result of security baselines defined by the administration".

In Venezuela, Mr. Trump restricted only the travel of government officials and their families, writing in the proclamation that the ban was focused on that group because they were "responsible for the identified inadequacies" in sharing information about travelers.

Despite the removal of Sudan, this new proclamation is undoubtedly more of the same, meant to appeal to the xenophobia and Islamophobia of Trump's base.

Several federal courts blocked the ban, but the U.S. Supreme Court passed it to take effect from June with some new changes.

Sushma Swaraj asked the United Nations not to see terrorism with "self-defeating and indeed meaningless nuance". Indian officials remained tight-lipped on the content of Swaraj's speech.

The Sunday proclamation could be less vulnerable to legal attack, scholars and other experts said, because it is the result of a months-long analysis of foreign vetting procedures by USA officials.

Critics have accused Trump of overstepping his legal authority and violating the U.S. Constitution's protections against religious bias each time he has ordered new travel restrictions. First, the restrictions are the product of an extensive country-by-country review of cooperation with USA requests for information on possible terrorist suspects, and of technical capabilities to screen travelers. Last week, Kim called Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard" in response to Trump's threats to "totally destroy" the North. Trump later said Kim is "obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people".

"I think the United States understands the situation in our country is different", another Venezuelan-American, Cathirine Lynch, said. For example, while Iran remains on the list of countries with travel restrictions, student and exchange visas are an exception.

President Nicolas Maduro has called those sanctions a financial blockade against the country, which is grappling with triple-digit inflation and chronic product shortages as its economy unravels. The matter will be ultimately decided when the Supreme Court hears arguments on the merits of the executive order in October. Trump dropped Sudan from the list, and added three new countries: Chad, North Korea and Venezuela.
