ABC News previously reported that a draft of the new executive order does not automatically reject refugees from Syria, and clarifies that green card holders and dual citizens of the us and the seven previously identified countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - are exempt.

Trump is expected to issue a new executive order as soon as Wednesday, and US officials say it would continue to call for keeping citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States. The White House has pledged to keep fighting for it in court.
The officials also said the order will exclude explicit exemption for religious minorities in the countries targeted by the travel ban.
The order went into effect immediately to worldwide outrage as travellers from these nations were either detained at arrival in the U.S. or were turned away from airports when they came to board their US-bound flights.

According to four officials, the decision was taken by the USA administration following pressure from the Pentagon and State Department.
The original executive order, signed last month, applied to existing visa holders as well as new applicants. The officials said that Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen will stay on the list, but Iraq was removed because the country is a crucial partner in the fight against the Islamic State.
Trump is expected to sign the new order on Wednesday.
