US President Donald Trump To Revise Travel Ban, Seeks Pause In Legal Fight Over Ban

The Trump administration said in court documents it wants a pause in the legal fight over its ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations, so it can issue a replacement ban as it strives to protect the nation from terrorism. Details of the new proposal were not provided in the filing or at a wide-ranging news conference by President Donald Trump. But lawyers for the administration said in the filing that a ban that focuses solely on foreigners who have never entered the US – instead of green card holders already in the US or who have traveled abroad and want to return – would pose no legal difficulties.
