President Issues Narrower Executive Order on Immigration

March 7, 2017, Covington Alert

Yesterday, President Trump issued a new Executive Order (the “Order”) titled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” This new Order replaces the so-called “travel ban” Executive Order issued January 27 (the “Prior Order”) which was subject to a nationwide temporary restraining order issued by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, a stay of which was denied by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The new Order, which has narrowed the class of foreign nationals affected, replaces the Prior Order in full and will go into effect on March 16, 2017 (the “Effective Date”).
