President Donald Trump signed a revised executive order on Monday banning citizens from six Muslim-majority nations from traveling to the United States but removing Iraq from the list, after his controversial first attempt was blocked in the courts.
The new order, which takes effect on March 16, keeps a 90-day ban on travel to the United States by citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. It applies only to new visa applicants, meaning some 60,000 people whose visas were revoked under the previous order will now be permitted to enter.

President Donald Trump visited a successful faith-based Orlando school Friday as part of his plan to push school vouchers.
In Trump’s first school visit since taking office, he toured St. Andrew Catholic School in Pine Hills, not far from Kirkman Road and West Colonial Drive. The faith-based school has about 300 students in the kindergarten-through-fifth grade, most of whom are on scholarships.
The president then particpated in a “school choice” roundtable, which included the principal, a pastor, students and alumni.
School leaders talked about how an income-based tax credit program in Florida has helped the Pine Hills school by allowing them to do more for students.
“Many of you all know the rap that Pine Hills gets, but I would like to tell you St. Andrew Catholic School is the diamond in the rough of Pine Hills,” Principal Latrina Peters-Gipson said. “At St. Andrew Catholic School, we soar academically, creatively and spiritually with all children.”
