The Hill reports:
President Trump’s revised executive order temporarily barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. will be phased in and will likely exempt green-card holders, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Saturday. “The president is contemplating issuing a tighter, more streamlined version of the first [executive order],” Kelly said at the Munich Security Conference, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“I will have, this time, the opportunity … to work the roll-out plan in particular to make sure that there’s no one in a sense caught in the system moving from overseas to our airports, which happened in the first release,” he said. The phase-in period, Mattis said, would allow people who are already in transit to the U.S. to still enter the country. He also said it was a “good assumption” that green card permit holders would be allowed into the country.
