The U.S. is preparing to announce targeted travel restrictions to replace an earlier controversial travel ban aimed at visitors from six Muslim-majority nations, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The Department of Homeland Security is recommending country-by-country restrictions for about nine nations that have not met standards on counter-terrorism efforts and passports, U.S. officials said.

The Supreme Court has, however, allowed a version of Trump’s travel ban to go into effect while the case proceeds legal system in October.

The travel ban was first announced in January, just days after Trump took office.

The president revised it in March to address legal concerns in an effort to temporarily bar people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U.S.

Trump has vocally defended his position, which opponents argued was discriminatory against Muslims. The administration argued it wanted time to review visa procedures for the countries.

    Very soon Nigeria will go on that list. The world declared Boko Haram a terrorist organisation and FOOLISHLY, our Military and govt gleefully declared IPOB a terrorist organisation. Even Buhari said Nigerians are all corrupt/thieves. Who does that? Bunch of illiterate ignoramuses destroying a nation they did not help to build.
