Trump expected to sign revised travel ban on Monday: US media

United States President Donald Trump is expected to sign a revised travel ban on Monday, just over a month after his executive order banning immigrants of seven Muslim-majority country in to US sowed controversy across the globe and chaos at airports, US media reported.
It was unclear about the changes Trump intended to make in the revised order, Politico reported.
On Saturday, Trump met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly — both central to the implementation of the order — at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Washington Post reported.
Trump’s original January 27 executive order has been blocked by a Federal court.
According to White House officials quoted by US media, the new order will address some of the legal concerns raised by federal judges.
Trump’s executive order had blocked immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
The order,which barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries from traveling to the United States for 90 days, as well as all refugees for 120 days and Syrian refugees permanently, triggered worldwide outrage as well as protest in US.
