President Donald Trump is expected to sign a new refugee and immigration travel ban on Wednesday.

A senior administration official revealed plans to roll out the fresh refugee and immigration executive order this week, but spoke on condition of anonymity as they are not authorised to discuss the plans publicly, the Independent reports.

The fresh travel ban was expected to be signed last week, but White House spokesman Sean Spicer claimed the President had delayed the order “to make sure that we execute this, it’s done in a manner that’s flawless”.

With the President’s first executive order to suspend the US’s refugee programme for 120 days, ban Syrian refugees indefinitely, and temporarily halt the entry of people from seven Muslim-majority countries being blocked by federal Judges. The new order will have minor technical differences from its predecessor but with the same base policy.
