The new ban temporarily bars new visas for citizens of six predominantly Muslim countries – one fewer than the original, with Iraq removed from the list. It also suspends the entire U.S. refugee program.The measure applies only to refugees who are not already on their way to the United States and people seeking new visas. Nevertheless, the changes will make it "much, much tougher" for a federal judge to block the ban, New York immigration attorney Ted Ruthizer said.Courts could find it compelling that the order does not cover all Muslims from all countries, he said. A spokesman for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld a Seattle judge's restraining order in the Washington case, said the court was evaluating the new executive order's effect on the existing case. The Justice Department filed papers Monday in federal court in Seattle arguing that the restraining order should not block the new ban from taking effect.Larry E. Klayman, a founder of and lawyer for the conservative group Freedom Watch, supported the original ban when it was before the court and called the new version "quite modest".
