The Trump administration has issued a new order expanding the travel ban to include the countries of Chad and North Korea, and some government officials from Venezuela. The new order also includes some restrictions on citizens from Iraq, as well as all citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia. It’s slated to go into effect on October 18. It’s even more extensive than Trump’s original ban, which caused widespread protests at airports nationwide and has been blocked by multiple courts.
