>> President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban set to be replaced by a new order that could apply to more than the six nations now targeted. Officials saying on Friday that the new ban will be tailored on a country by country basis. Yeganeh Torbati is following the story.>> What the Department of Homeland Security has proposed to the White House is more tailored and targeted restrictions.
Unfortunately, we don't really know what those restrictions might be, but the sense that we're getting from the administration is that they are more tailored and more targeted than an outright ban. They may require, for instance, greater documentation of identity, they may require certain steps to be taken or they may outright ban some types of visas for citizens of certain countries.
>> The new order will also be open-ended with nation's potentially being added and dropped at any time. The ban sparked protests and chaos at airports worldwide in January before it was blocked by US courts. Trump then signed a revised executive order in March, banning travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen for 90 days, and barring most refugees for 120 days.
The travel ban which expires Sunday is set to be reviewed by the Supreme Court on October 10th.>> But it's certainly true that these measures and the very much deliberative process that the administration has undertaken to impose these restrictions, once we find out what they are, will be much harder to challenge in court.
Because there will a lot more evidence at the administration actually did its homework and actually consulted with other countries, and with lawyers, and with national security experts.>> The administration says the ban is critical to national security, but opponents say it targets Muslims and violates the US Constitution's religious protections.
