Trump to replace travel ban order 'in the near future' Feb 17, 2017 0 170 12345 ReutersSAN FRANCISCOUS PRESIDENT Donald Trump will replace his executive order suspending travel from seven Muslim-majority countries 'in the near future,' according to a Justice Department court filing on Thursday.Given the upcoming executive order, the Justice Department said a federal appeals court should not reconsider a ruling that suspended Trump's Jan 27 order."In so doing, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation," the Justice Department said in its filing.Trump has said his directive, issued last month, was necessary to protect the US from attacks by Islamist militants. It barred people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days. Refugees were banned for 120 days, except those from Syria, who were banned indefinitely.The implementation of the order, however, plunged the immigration system into chaos, sparking a wave of criticism from targeted countries, Western allies and some of America's leading corporations.
