US President Donald Trump's revised executive order to ban travel for all immigrants coming from seven Muslim-majority nations would exclude green card holders coming from these nations. According to the newly-elected POTUS, the new immigration executive order would "protect our people" and pass the requirements of court.

According to CNN, the revised travel ban executive order could be re-proposed as early as this week and it would clarify that green card holders from the Muslim-majority countries indicated in the ban are excluded. The news website cites Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly in his Munich Security Conference Statement that, "The President is contemplating releasing a tighter, more streamlined version of the executive order."

In the last few weeks, Trump's travel ban against the countries Iran, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen caused international controversy. Should the 9th Circuit Court implemented the executive order, the country would hold the entry of citizens from these Muslim-majority nations for 90 days -- with Syrian refugees to be held at bay "indefinitely."

The Hill writes that the revised travel ban would still include the original seven countries and "will no longer tell authorities to specifically single out" and "reject Syrian refugees." The first version of the travel ban had the Trump administration face lawsuits from several human rights groups before a Seattle federal judge -- whom Trump publicly berated and blamed for any possible security issues in the country -- blocked the executive order.

After the executive order's announcement, the US travel industry expected a quick and massive decline in the number of bookings into the United States. According to Boston Globe, analysts believed the executive order to ban travelers from seven Muslim nations could cause the same damage as the Sept 11, 2001 terror attacks caused in the United States.

The same report cited several online booking websites that searches for the United States for booking went down from 17 percent to 6 percent after Trump's announcement and signing of the executive order. According to analysts, the "icy message" the announcement and signing of the executive order's intent is alarming.
