DEVELOPING: Trump Expected To Sign New Travel Ban Monday
President Donald Trump is expected to sign on Monday a new executive order on his controversial travel ban at the Department of Homeland Security, according to senior government officials familiar with the matter.
It is unclear how significant the changes to the current order will be or whether the White House will continue a court fight over its old order.
The original order restrained immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, temporarily halted the entry of refugees and indefinitely shut down the entrance of refugees from Syria.
Some DHS employees were instructed to work from home on Monday morning, according to an internal agency email sent late Friday.
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was heading on Saturday to Mar-a-Lago “for an EO launch meeting” with a team from the Department of Justice. They will meet with DHS officials and the president, according to a source familiar with the matter.
