New Trump order drops Iraq from travel ban list: Officials
WASHINGTON: US officials say President Donald Trump's new immigration(आप्रवासन) order will remove Iraq from the list of countries whose citizens face a temporary (अस्थायी) US travel ban. Four officials say the administration's decision follows pressure from the Pentagon and State Department. They had urged the White House to reconsider Iraq's inclusion given its key role in fighting the Islamic State group.
Trump is expected to sign the new order Wednesday. It is designed to replace an earlier Trump order that was blocked by federal courts.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity (अशांत होने की अवस्था) because they weren't authorized to discuss the order before it is signed.
