Washington, D.C. — President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to announce the details of its new travel ban that will be implemented by mid-March, a White House official told Axios.
The official said the new order will take effect on March 15.
The executive order is being released in response to a lawsuit filed by the state of Hawaii.
The administration has not yet released details of the order, but according to the official, the revised travel ban will be “less stringent” and will allow for “limited travel of individuals from certain countries and limited refugee admissions.”
The executive action will be similar to a temporary travel ban, which was enacted by Trump in February to limit travel from seven countries and halt the flow of refugees to the U.S.
A federal judge on Friday blocked the executive order from going into effect on Friday, arguing that it could cause “a substantial and irreparable injury” to the state.
