Revised Trump Executive Order and Guidance on Refugee Resettlement and Travel Ban

On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order that rescinded and replaced an earlier executive order he had signed on January 27, 2017 that received widespread international and domestic criticism and was the subject of dozens of legal challenges that resulted in limited and national injunctions restricting its implementation. The revised executive order, governing the refugee resettlement program and admission of nonimmigrants without prior visas from six Muslim-majority countries, was accompanied by a presidential memorandum further describing the implementation of the order. This brief, presented in an easy-to-reference sideby-side chart, examines the revised executive order, comparing it to provisions of the original executive order as well as prior policy and practice.
